I guest a new husband that treats her right wasnât the icing on the cake for R&B singer Jill Scottâs happiness. Singersroom have learned that the soul crooner is pregnant with her first child with fiance and musician Lil John Roberts. Promoting her new HBO series The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, based on the popular novels by Alexander McCall Smith, Scott told reporters she discovered that she was pregnant just before leaving for Botswana where she filmed the show. “The first trimester I spent in Botswana,” said the star, who is due April 25. “That was one of the biggest challenges of my life. First trimester! You’re sick every morning. It was seven hours time difference, the heat, the bugs, the 14 hour days.” Scott also says she’s glad she went through with the plans to film. “My doctors gave me a clean bill of health and said you can do this, so I did it.” Scott, 36, is a three-time Grammy Award winner and star of the 2007 Tyler Perry film Why Did I Get Married?
