Jill Scott has a baby boy!

On Monday, singer Jill Scott and her fiance drummer Lil John Roberts welcomed their first child, a baby boy.  Jett Hamilton Roberts was born at 4:20 p.m. on April 20 and weighed 7 lbs., 8 oz.

After years of being unable to conceive, Scott said she discovered that she was pregnant right before leaving to film her HBO series, “The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency,” in Botswana.

“At one point I was trying to gain weight for the role, and I noticed I had put on 7 lbs. in 7 days. And I thought, my god! What’s going on here,” she tells PEOPLE. “I thought something was wrong with me, and I found out I was pregnant the day I was supposed to leave for Africa.”

  1. Jill is such a beautiful Princess and I’m so happy for her and her fiance. As much as you don’t idolize celebrities when you’re grown, like you use to do when you were a kid, there are still celebrities who draw your attention as being someone you’d like to model after. For Jill, is definitely one of those individuals. She’s remarkably talented and gifted, and now her sweet little family has just been blessed and expanded. Go ‘head Jill!
