Ludacris bought his first home in Atlanta in the early 2000s and outfitted it as a bachelor pad, complete with his own logo on the wall.
“At that point I had really no sense of style,” he says in the latest episode of My Houzz.
However, the rapper later invited his mom to move from Virginia to Georgia and had her move into his house so that she could be close to family. Now, the aesthetic of the house no longer worked, since a bachelor’s pad was no good fit for her, and she started to redecorate and renovate to make the house her own.
“When she moved into it, she was wanting to make it her own,” he explained. “But a lot of the rooms my mother has started on are just incomplete.”
So, as a Mother’s Day present, Ludacris, along with his wife Eudoxie, decided to finish up the remodeling job for her.
On My Houzz, Ludacris set to work with designer Rachel Oliver to remake the house, making it more modern and feminine.
“It makes me feel that I’m blessed beyond belief,” an emotional Roberta said after seeing her new home. “What I would say to them is, ‘Thank you for loving me.’”
“I feel like every child wants to do everything they can possibly do for their mom to give back an ounce of what their mother has given them,” Ludacris said of the gesture. “This is one step closer.”
