When the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul married record producer Kendu Isaacs in 2003, she also got a three-deal bonus: Isaac’s three children, Jordan, Nas and Brianna. Blige has expressed her adoration for her husband’s kids, declaring she loves them as her own.
“They’re just so loving,” she told ESSENCE about Nas, 7, and Jordan, 8. “They’re a product of their mother and father. The kids are so sweet, and they’re so smart. They asked, ‘You want us to call you Mom?’ I said, ‘No, call me what you want, and if you’re ready to ever call me Mom, you do so. But for now, we’re friends.’”
