A PRECIOUS BOND

A few months ago, Mills celebrated her son's 19th birthday. Farad, who has down syndrome, was born to his famous mother when she was 45 years old.

Mills' career as a singer and an actress took off when she was merely 9 years old in the Broadway show "Maggie Flynn."

On her son's birthday, the proud mother gushed about him and shared that he is the greatest gift that she has ever been given in an Instagram post. She wrote:

"They questioned how I was gonna balance my career, and raising a special needs child. Having my child saved my life!"

Despite what the naysayers had to say, Mills went on to successfully raise her child, all while navigating through her career like a champ.

STEPHANIE'S CAREER

Mills' career as a singer and an actress took off when she was merely 9 years old in the Broadway show "Maggie Flynn." She then rose to fame with her role as Dorothy in "The Wiz."

Mills returned to the role several times and even returned in "The Wiz Live!" as Auntie Em in 2015. After her stint in "The Wiz," she established herself as a successful R&B singer during the 1980s.

In merely a decade, the singer scored five number one hits and bagged a Grammy in the Best Female R&B Vocal Performance category for her song "Never Knew Love Like This Before."

The singer also dated the late King of Pop Michael Jackson once. They went out for about a year and a half and she remembers Jackson as a sweet and compassionate person.

Mills is pretty defensive when it comes to Jackson. She once criticized singer Sam Smith for saying that he was not a fan of the King of Pop.
