“American Idol” 2006 contestant Princess P is becoming a mommy.Paris Bennett is expecting a baby girl in October and will be 20 when mommyhood arrives.”This makes five generations,” an overjoyed Jamecia Bennett, told me Thursday.Jamecia, who like her daughter and mother is a singer, is absolutely over the moon about being a first-time grandmother.

“I’m proud of how she did it. I was 16 when I got pregnant,” said Jamecia.

Paris’ great-grandmother is Shirley T. Bennett, 75, of Rockford, Ill.; her grandmother Ann Nesby, a gospel and R&B powerhouse, who lives in Atlanta, was with the Sounds of Blackness.
Who’s the daddy? “He chooses not to be in the public eye,” said Jamecia. “I respect that.” What does he do for a living? “I can’t tell,” she said.

“She has a ring,” said Jamecia, who’s hopeful that she’ll be planning a wedding for Paris.

The planning for an August baby shower is already underway. A few celebrities may fly into town for the show, including Queen Latifah.

Latifah has made it clear that she plans to spoil this baby with gifts and that she won’t be stopped. You’re the princess but I’m the queen, Jamecia said Latifah told Paris.

  1. congratulations on her pregnancy. she’s cute but her face looks ashy as you know what in that picture. she needs some iman consemtics!

  2. cosmetics

  3. a first-time grandmother.

    ā€œIā€™m proud of how she did it. I was 16 when I got pregnant,ā€
    ~said Jamecia.

    Jamelia needs to reevaluate the situation? How is her unmarried teenage ( well 19 is better than 16,15,14) daughter’s pregnancy great?

    & what/why does she keep bringing up Queen Latifah’s name?

  4. ^^^Maybe Queen Latifah is the father?

  5. thats wrong saying queen latifah the daddy but her name did come out of nowhere… all you can do congradulate her… too bad it wasnt for her singing… but having a baby isnt a bad thing either… she is of age you all

  6. Having a baby out of wed lock is wrong, no matter what age you are. Forget about the ashiness and cosmetics. We have to encourage abstinece for our young people. Teach them to repect the word of God and themselves. It isn’t nice being a parent at 19 or 20, and I testify from personal experience.

  7. GHETTO!!! Proud of “how she did it”? 19 and unwed? Please!

  8. […] for like, and this meaning holds fair in the tattoo form as well. Tags: | architecture | trends | social issues | science | plants […]
