Ludacris Surprises His Mom With Complete Home Makeover For Mothers Day


Chris Bridges credits a lot of his success as a recording artist and an actor to his mother, Roberta.

Bridges is better known as the Atlanta rapper Ludacris, with hit songs including What’s Your Fantasy and Stand Up, and for his recurring role as Tej Parker in the film franchise The Fast and the Furious. He says his mother taught him about hard work and dedication. “That’s why I’m where I am and who I am today,” he says.

Years ago, after Roberta retired, she moved into the first house Bridges bought when he became commercially successful. Many of Bridges’ style choices at the time remained in the home, including a painted logo of his record company in the home office. “At that point, I had no sense of style,” Bridges says.

Roberta had started several decorating projects in the home but never completed them. Recently, Bridges decided to surprise his mom by making over the living room, dining room, kitchen and office with new colors and furnishings he knew she’d like so she’d finally feel that the home was hers.

“She’s going to wake up every day with a smile on her face and go to sleep every night with a smile on her face, knowing her house is complete,” Bridges says.

“I see us making lots of memories here,” Roberta says. “It feels wonderful.”
