Kelly Rowland has excited fans with the lovely news that she’s pregnant with her second child.
The Destiny’s Child singer is expecting another baby with husband
Tim Weatherspoon, giving her five-year-old son Titan a little brother or
sister to play with.
Kelly made the announcement on the cover of Women’s Health’s latest issue, in which
she reveals her growing baby bump.
In the interview, the Motivation singer revealed that she fell pregnant fairly soon after lockdown began.
‘‘We had been talking about it loosely, and then Covid happened, and we were just
like, “Let’s see what happens”,’ she said.
At first, Kelly hesitated in making her pregnancy public at first but realised ‘you
still want to remind people that life is important And being able to have a child…
I’m knocking at 40’s door in February. Taking care of myself means a lot to me’.
Kelly confirmed that she’s due later this year but stopped short of sharing the baby’s sex.
So far, she’s had pregnancy cravings for chocolate and peanut butter and felt an ‘overwhelming sense of exhaustion’ in her first trimester.
When asked about raising two Black children in the middle of racial tensions,
she recalled the day George Floyd was tragically killed during an arrest by
white police officers in May.
‘I’d just put Titan to bed,’ she explained, adding: ‘I got into the shower, and I had this real hard, ugly, deep cry.
Because I promised to protect my kid. That was the main thing I was thinking about: protecting this little innocence.’
Last year, Kelly addressed the prospect of having a second child but stated the timing
wasn’t right despite Titan badgering her and Tim for a sibling.
‘He’s like, “We’re going to have a brother, Mum”,’ she told People.
‘I said, “Well, he won’t be my brother – he’ll be my son -and what if it’s a girl?” “No, it’s not a girl, it’s a brother”.
