In the rhythm and blues world, Keyshia Myeshia Cole has left an indelible mark with her soulful voice and poignant lyrics.
Beyond the stage, she navigates the complexities of motherhood with grace and resilience, cherishing the precious moments with her two children, Tobias Khale and Daniel Gibson Jr.
Keyshia’s journey into motherhood took a significant turn in 2010 when she welcomed her firstborn, Daniel Gibson Jr., into the world. Born during her past marriage to NBA player Daniel Gibson, this chapter marked the beginning of her exploration into the multifaceted role of being a mother.
Years later, in 2019, Keyshia embraced motherhood once again with the arrival of her son Tobias Khale. Tobias’s birth was a product of Keyshia’s relationship with her ex-boyfriend Niko Khale, adding a new dynamic to her family structure.
In an interview with ESSENCE, Keyshia Cole opened up about her perspective on motherhood, expressing her desire to prioritize her role as a full-time mom after completing her final album.
Family holds a special place in Keyshia’s heart, especially considering the losses she has endured. The singer emphasizes the importance of finding happiness for oneself while being present for loved ones.
“We spend so much time trying to accomplish so many things to fulfill those in our lives, but we also have to make sure that we make ourselves happy as well and be there for our families and children and the people who deserve our love,” Keyshia shared during the interview. “Don’t waste that time. Gotta be there for them babies, man. Gotta be there for them babies.”
