Taraji P. Henson is a successful actress and plays the role of Cookie on the Fox new hit show Empire. On the show, Cookie is the ex-wife of Hip-Hop artist and CEO of Empire Entertainment, Lucious Lyon who must decide which of his three sons will take over and run the business. She is known for her roles as Yvette in Baby Boy, Shug in Hustle & Flow and Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button just to name a few.

Taraji’s son Marcell was born in 1994 and he is an aspiring musician. She had this caption under a picture of them on instagram:

Check out what she told Huffington Post about motherhood:

You’re also a single mother. Is it hard to juggle being a mom and a working actress?

It’s difficult but such is life. It comes with challenges but at the same time I love being a mother. It’s the best part of my life. It enriches my life so much. It gives me other things to think about besides this crazy industry that I decided to partake in. It keeps me grounded and focused on what life is really about.

On Empty-nest Syndrome.

I’m so used to being a mom, and so used to saying, “Put your dirty clothes in the washroom! What do you want to eat for dinner?”‘ I’m so used to that. What do I do with myself after that?”

More children in the future?

“Noooo! No, thank you. You want to know what my birth control is? It’s called ‘teenager.’”
