Congratulations on the birth Jill. Will any more No 1 shows be made? I really enjoyed watching them as they brought the books to life.

Congrats to Jill..welcome to the wonderful (sometimes crazy) world of motherhood! I love you as a singer and have been inspired by your music. Your acting both in TP's Why Did I get Married and in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency have been outstanding. Jill, you truly are a woman of many talents. Not only to do write and sing beautiful melodies, but you have brought joy to many through your acting. My husband, who is from Cameroon, was delighted, surprised and captivated by your acting ability.

MORE EPISODES PLEASE!!! We miss our Sunday Night HBO ritual (its the only reason we kept HBO!!)

God Bless...
