Solange Knowles is the epitome of what it means to be a career mom. Although she is a DJ and recording artist, she always manages to spend quality time with her 7-year-old son Julez. While she could easily take the credit for being able to balance motherhood with her career, Solange attributes her success in parenting to her own mother Tina Knowles.


When asked about motherhood, Tina said, “You make mistakes as a mother, and I know that I’ve made mistakes, but overall, it’s just been amazing, and I’m so close to my children. They make me happy – probably happier than anything else that I do.”

Another thing that makes the grandmother of two happy is hanging out with the adventurous Julez. As Tina explains, “I’ve never been around little boys before, but we have so much fun. We go to Chuck E. Cheese and Dave & Buster’s. They say I overindulge him far more than I did my own children. The family jokes that I’ve bought him every kind of drum set and noisemaker there is!”

The May edition of Ebony magazine featuring Solange Knowles and other celebrity moms will be available on Friday, April 20, 2012.
