It’s been twelve years since Monica’s life was forever changed with the arrival of her son, Rodney “Rocko” Hill Jr. The celebrity mom celebrated her oldest child’s birthday on Monday with a school birthday party.
“Today’s celebration at school was lit,” Monica said after the day’s event concluded. “We had bomb burgers by @theloadedburger dope delicious and GREAT hospitality,” the celebrity mom revealed. “Decor was awesome,” she exclaimed.
Iced by Tara Tomilson put a lot of love into Rodney’s tiered cake that had a basketball theme. “Whole time making this cake couldn’t stop singing…They’re playin Baskeeetball, they’re playin baskeetbaalll,” the cake designer shared online. “Happy Birthday Rocko,” Tara wrote. Rodney certainly appeared impressed by the cake and other decorations as he wore a smile while his classmates sang the Birthday Song.
