In the November issue of Honey magazine, R&B singer Solange comes clean about the challenges of being a mom to her 5-year-old son Daniel Julez with ex-husband Daniel Smith.

“A lot of people feel like their life has to stop because of the child and they have to let go of their interests. You definitely have to compromise some of them, but I’ve been really blessed.”

Solange affirms that motherhood is the most important aspect of her life – ahead of any honors or tributes that come with being an entertainer.

“I have to say no to a lot of things because at the end of the day I know that no matter how many awards or accolades or praise or money I get, the one thing that really is a judgment of me is what kind of mother I am.”

Fortunately, Solange and her ex-husband Daniel Smith are determined to co-parent their son, sharing equal custody and coordinating their schedules accordingly. “I try not to ever be away from him unless he’s with his dad.”
