    It said a look at her son throughout the years, I thought I was gonna see some pictures of them when he was little and pics as he got older. He’s like the same age in all those pics.

    Good point. But I’m not shunning the son. I just want to meet her first. Met some single moms kids after we decided the time was right. Shoot, I’ll even take the young man to eat, shop, or play sports. But that is after me and moms do* grown folks stuff*, and make sure we want to go further in that direction.

    I ain’t trying to meet someones kid until after we figure out we’re cool

  • Thenji Maynard

    Can’t meet the one without the other. Don’t you know? Steve, you’re already lost Ms. Henson’s attention just for shunning her son. Teeheehee. Repeat after me: “Wow, great mom and cute dude.” Then get her agent’s number. Tsk.

  • Steve Stone

    I’m sure he’s a nice young man and all, but I want to *meet* Taraji, not him.

  • PleaseDOBetter

    I always wondered what he looked like. Kudos to her for shielding her son from the craziness that is Hollywood.

  • Dirtybubblez

    Her son is so dope! I love that second picture of them together, that is a cute mommy/son photo!

  • Wanna Play??

    He is Fine!!!
