In addition to being a singer, this glamorous superstar is also a mother of five to children Rhonda, Tracee, Chudney, Ross and Evan. "Being a parent is very important to me," Diana says.

Growing up, Diana's children say that they lived relatively typical lives. "There was a sense of routine and normalcy," says Tracee, her daughter.

They also say that their mother always trusted them and encouraged them to follow their dreams. "Somehow, despite how large her career and her persona [have] been, she has helped us not feel in her shadow," says Rhonda, her oldest daughter. "We can be ourselves. She somehow helped us to have that."
