Besides her talents as an actress, Fields is also an author. She published her autobiography, "Blessed Life: My Surprising Journey of Joy, Tears, and Tales from Harlem to Hollywood," in November 2017.
Though Fields is a busy woman, her main priority is being a mother to her sons. In an exclusive interview with Elev8, she spoke about the challenges of raising a family in the new social media and internet world.
The actress said parents must remain parents and not allow their kids to have free reign over everything. She said parents must set boundaries for their kids to know when and how to do things.
From Quincy's wise words in his mother's Instagram Story post, it is evident that Fields' kids are taking her lessons home and would most likely grow up to become important men in society in years to come.
