So actress and TV cooking show host Tia Mowry wrote “Oh Baby“. Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels penned “Yeah Baby“. The new celebrity to come out with a book about pregnancy for the first time is multi-Grammy winning artist Kelly Rowland.
Her book, “Whoa, Baby!: A Guide for New Moms Who Feel Overwhelmed and Freaked Out (and Wonder What the #*$& Just Happened)” written with her OB/GYN of 10 years Dr. Tristan Bickman went on sale on Tuesday, April 11.
In it, Rowland shares her candid reactions to pregnancy and motherhood; and dealing with all the surprises that you’re never prepared for until you experience it first hand, even if you read about it before in a book.
The Voice Australia coach discussed the book with USA Today and how she too was duped by the perfect magazine covers with the facade celebs who were fit and trim weeks after giving birth.
The former Destiny’s Child band member wrote: “I just saw a cover that I did for Shape and then I’m looking in the mirror going, ‘Oh, my god this is not the same body. How did this happen?’ And, I had to just keep reminding myself that, ‘You had a baby, Kel.’ But I was hard on myself. I really was.”
And in the interview as with the book, the mom to 2-year old son Titan doesn’t hold back. Nothing’s off the table. Incontinence, vaginal tearing, check! and check!
In the book, she referred to herself looking at her lady parts in the mirror after giving birth”the world’s worst idea!”
Your vajayjay does not look the same for a very long time,” she told openly shared, noting that a friend told her that her husband wouldn’t care. “‘But, I care about it.’ We go to get it all done up and trimmed and waxed and this and that and it’s all swollen and crazy and you’re just wondering what just happened?”
It’s a very raw discussion in the book, it seems. She also talks mom guilt and more. Check out the full interview HERE!
