Ashanti is ready to start a family.

As reported on The Jasmine Brand, during a new interview, the Princess of R&B and Hip Hop said she’s working hard now to slow down later on. Ashanti said, 

“I’m hustling and doing what I need to do now, so I can chill a little bit.” She’s looking forward to building a family, but with the “right” person. She went on to say, 

“Trust me, there’s a lot of guys that want to be my baby daddy — and they’ve tried.” The “Good Good” singer shared the type of mother she aspires to be. Ashanti said,

“If I have an ounce of my mom’s skills, I’m superior, honestly, because my mom is the sh*t.” She continued, “My dad is cool too, and my sister. But my mom’s a different breed. They don’t make human beings like my mom.”

Throughout Ashanti’s career, she’s seemingly kept her dating life private. Although she dated the rapper Nelly on and off for 11 years in the early 2000s, you didn’t hear many details about their relationship, like most celebrity couples today. 

The pair went viral a few weeks ago after performing their song “Body on Me.” Fans felt the chemistry was still there and wondered if she would get back with the country grammar artist. During a different interview, Ashanti addressed it and said we’ll see what happens. 

Overall, Ashanti had an exciting 2022. She was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She also celebrated the 20th anniversary of her self-titled debut album in a major way. She shared news about her first NFT collection. In addition, she released a children’s book called My Name Is My Story.
