THE FIRST TIME CALHOUN INTRODUCED HER SON TO THE WORLD

Calhoun, who is known for being tight-lipped when it comes to her private life, first introduced her son to the world in a grand fashion. It was during a red carpet event, the premiere of "The Best Man Holiday," a sequel to one of her most successful works to date, "The Best Man."

CALHOUN REVEALS THE ONE THING THAT HAS HELPED HER RAISE HER SON 

The actress singly raises her son, but this is not obvious despite the challenging bit that he is a special needs child. The gorgeous entertainer still does an excellent job and has attributed this to the fact that she grew up living with her brother, who was also born blind. 

Calhoun said:

"The way I grew up is just a little bit different than everybody else because my brother was born blind. So my perception of the world and things is just a little bit different."

She concluded that getting to have such a unique experience of life is what helped her learn to be patient, a virtue admittedly needed for a woman raising a special needs child. 

There is indeed no better way to describe Monica Calhoun than as a pacesetter.
