Diana Ross Slept On Air Mattress During Daughter’s Pregnancy

Superstar Diana Ross was so determined to support her eldest daughter through every step of her pregnancy, the singer moved in with her and slept on an air mattress.

Actress Rhonda welcomed her son Raif Henok Emmanuel Kendrick in August 2009, and reveals the Baby Love hitmaker was so eager to help out in the months leading up to the boy’s birth, she willingly spent night after night on a makeshift bed.  Rhonda, whose father is record mogul Berry Gordy, tells Oprah Winfrey,

“I had had some problem pregnancies prior, so we were very careful with this one, and she was with me the whole time, she slept on an air mattress in my apartment, she came to every doctor’s appointment, and I was going a lot.”

Ross, 66, was also present for her first grandchild’s birth, and admits she drove doctors at the hospital crazy.
The singer says,

“I was there when she gave birth too. The doctor said I was nuts, I was running, going, ‘Oh, oh, oh, look at that baby!’ I think they wanted to kick me out!”

Rhoda, 39, adds, “She was the first one to grab the baby. She ran out like it was a football!”

Raif is Rhonda’s child with jazz musician husband Rodney Kendrick.
