R&B singer Monica dismissed rumors that she is carrying husband Shannon Brown’s baby. The Diva spoke to Global Grind last night during the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul 3rd Annual Women Behind the Music series at Tenjune in New York.
When Monica was asked if there were any future baby plans for her and basketball hubby Shannon Brown, she said:
“Absolutely I’m young, he’s young and we want to have that between the two of us, but right now we are enjoying the three that we have blended together. We have little Shannon, we have Rodney and we have Romello. So we are enjoying the three of them right now.”
On married life as a basketball wife:
“I always say ‘I’m Shannon Brown’s wife’. I don’t look at the title of what he does, basketball, as the leading ideal of what I am as a wife. Because no matter what career path he chooses, I’m his wife, not a basketball wife.
I just look at it like we have two different jobs that are some times complex, but wanting our marriage to work it’s easy for us to prioritize and do what we need to do.”
Last night’s event honored Mona Scott, Monica and celebrity manager Phillana Williams with a special performance by Bridgette Kelly.
