Natashia Bedingfield has enjoyed a prolific career as a singer, but it is motherhood that has gotten the best of her heart. Here, we take a look inside her journey as a mom.


When Natasha Bedingfield burst onto the scene in the early 2000s, fans embraced her talents, and soon she became the trending name on the lips of millions.

While her prowess as a singer has brought her into the corridors of fame, it is her duty as a mom that is dear to her heart. More than anything else, Bedingfield is a devoted mom to her son.

As Bedingfield's career began to blossom, it did not take time before love knocked on her door. In 2009, the "Unwritten" singer announced that she would be walking down the aisle with California businessman Matthew Robinson.

The wedding took place in Malibu and was graced by an audience of 150 selected close friends and families. Shortly after the wedding, the cozy couple had their eyes set on building their family.



In 2017, the songstress excitedly announced to her followers that she was expecting her first child. Natasha Bedingfield's husband Matt Robinson could not hide his joy at being a dad, and the duo shared pictures on their social media pages announcing their big news.

Few months after sharing their big news, Natasha Bedingfield's son Solomon Dylan was born. The couple flooded social media with adorable pictures of their newborn son.

In a tribute to their son, the couple remarked that they were excited to welcome their son and expressed their love for the little one. Thousands of fans took to social media to congratulate the couple.



Being a mom was a different experience that undoubtedly changed Bedingfield's life. The 39-year-old, during various interviews, admitted that being a mom affected every aspect of her life.

During an interview with ET Canada, Bedingfield talked about her album, "Roll With Me" and the impact motherhood has had on her career. The R&B singer noted that motherhood changed her perception of life.


She admitted that it meant she no longer cared about her own needs; her priority is not to care for the needs of her toddler son Dylan.

Bedingfield is also making sure she is raising her son to love music. The singer once brought her son up on stage during a performance and confessed that she loved having him around, even on tours.

Bedingfield confessed that her young son had developed a passion for music and seemed like he would follow in her steps. The singer revealed that she loved his love for music.


After welcoming Dylan, Bedingfield's relationship with the toddler affected the quality of her music. She noted that she found it easier to pen down songs as she felt more inspired.

Bedingfield also got to reconnect with her roots as a mom and noted that being a mom to a toddler made her laugh more and play as she did as a kid.



Things came crashing down for Bedingfield and her husband when their son had a brain tumor and had to undergo surgery. The situation reportedly took a toll on Bedingfield's home as they tried to cope with the new status.

On this day, Bedingfield and her husband prepared to travel to New York for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The singer went to wake her two-year-old son when she noticed he could not talk coherently.


At first, she felt he was pulling a prank but soon realized that Dylan could not talk or move half of his body. The situation soon turned out to be Bedingfield's worst nightmare.

The family spent weeks at a children's hospital where Dylan had two surgeries for a brain abscess. Bedingfield praised her son for being strong and positive throughout the horrifying ordeal.


Following a second surgery, Bedingfield updated her fans and noted that Dylan was doing okay and was surrounded by love and care. The "Unwritten" singer thanked everyone for their support and prayers.

After spending time caring for her son, she revealed that her new priority was to care for herself and ensure her mental health is protected. Her fans were delighted to see the family walk out of their dark tunnel.
