“Motivation” singer Kelly Rowland revealed news that she is expecting her second child in a bare bump reveal on teh cover of the November edition of Women’s Health magazine.

She is shot by renowned photographer of African, French and Italian heritage and my namesake, Djeneba Aduayom.

The Grammy-winning recording artist also shared with New York-based author Dawnie Walton how the pandemic played into the baby number 2 makign process, saying that she and hubby Tim Weatherspoon, “had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, ‘Let’s see what happens.'”

The former Destiny’s Child bandmbember also talked about how she decided to share the news during these uncertain times.

“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

But also top of mind was her fans who she knew had been asking her to produce a new album.

The thought “Oh my god, my fans are gonna be so disappointed .… They wanted an album first, but they got a baby!” then added,  “and I was like, ‘I have to figure this out so they get both.'”

The super mom is figuring out how to do both and says she is in fact, working on new music!

“I want it to feel very organic, coming from me,” she said about her music, adding that she likes “to touch on everything” with her songs.

While the gender of the baby has not been revealed, she did speak on the Breonna Taylor Grand Jury decision to not charge the officers in her killing and how that impacts her own parenting and child rearing of a black son.

“I promised to protect my kid. That was the main thing I was thinking about: protecting this little innocence,” she said when reflecting on these deaths.

Well said! Congrats!

Kelly RowlandGets Really Raw in her New Book About Pregnancy

whoa-baby

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!

Kelly Rowland to Launch a Make-Up Line for ‘Chocolate Girls’; Joins Michelle Obama’s First Single

make up artist

Given the limit of quality make up for darker complexioned women, singer phenom Kelly Rowland will soon fill the void by collaborating with her make up artist Sheika Daley to release a line of make up for “chocolate girls” as she described it to Essence magazine.

In a recent interview at a Claritin and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America-sponsored event, the former Destiny’s Child girl band member gave some deets about the upcoming project.

“My makeup artist Sheika Daley and I are actually starting a makeup line we’re making sure we make, well, we’re starting off with lashes and then we’re going to have it grow for all women,” Rowland told Essence. “But definitely making sure we have our chocolate girls covered. Gotta get the chocolate girls in there! We have to have that, you know. I think Iman has done a beautiful makeup line and I want to do it too!”

No word yet on its actual launch date or what stage in production the line is currently.

When not designing make up lines, Rowland and our other Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum and current second-time mom-to-be Kelly Clarkson were lending their voices to First Lady Michelle Obama‘s first single.

The empowerment anthem, titled, “This is For My Girls”, also features Zendaya, Janelle Monae,  Chloe & Halle, Jadagrace and Lea Michele, Billboard notes.

Veteran songwriter Diane Warren penned the song, Rap-Up reports.

It is all part of the Obama administration’s Let Girls Learn initiative and the White House’s #62MillionGirls campaign, which aims to help “more than 62 million girls around the world” complete their education.

For example, being a mom has made her more patient.

“I am much more laid-back now,” she says. “Being a mom just makes me feel whole.”

The “Motivation”  singer shares that she is also less of a perfectionist, the Destiny’s Child  alum shares.

“I was nervous that I didn’t have the patience to be a good mom, because before Titan I had zero. But now I am very patient. The Bible verse ‘love is patient’ is real!” the award-winning singer who will star in her own reality TV show on BET called Chasing Destiny soon says. “I don’t make the little things into big issues like I once did…My OCD had to go out the window. My living room looks like a freaking day care!” Motherhood has also allowed the perfectionist to give herself a break when it comes to weight. Her advice to other new moms: “Write on your mirror in lipstick: ‘I had a baby. I’m a superhero.'”

Rowland recently shared a photo of her son taking his first steps and enjoys these milestones tremendously given she no longer has her mom to share them. Shortly after marrying her manager Tim Witherspoon in 2014, Rowland’s mom passed away three weeks later after suffering cardiac arrest. “It was a tough, emotional point for me,” says Rowland. “I remember not wanting to be sad for Titan. I wanted to keep myself together because I believe that all that stress and grief can be passed on to your baby. Knowing Titan needed me, and having that to focus on, helped me through.” She brags that her mom’s friends and other family have stepped up. “I’m closer with all of my girlfriends who are mothers,” she says. “I call them all for advice.” The newly-confident mom is working on her next album in between shooting scenes for Empire but seems to be handling it all well. While her son has gone from crawling to walking to running, she’s also been working on tracks for her next album. It’s thanks to Titan, Rowland says, that she has the “patience and confidence” to juggle it all. “I have always had maternal instincts, but as a mom you figure things out,” she concluded “Now I trust myself and feel stronger, like I can do anything.” Cool beans! Some behind the scenes videos of the shoot can be seen here at Parents.com and on her IG Account.

Kelly Rowland bares nude bump for Elle photo shoot

Mom-to-be Kelly Rowland goes bare in her photo shoot for her new Elle.com piece. 
The gorgeous singer and former Destiny’s Child group member opens up in the cover piece to the spread. In it, she explains how perplexed she is that people give celebrity women flak for posing nude while pregnant.
“I don’t know why they would get flack. It’s really—I won’t say amazing—it’s Godmazing [laughs] watching your body carry a human,” she said, adding: “I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that? The body should be celebrated.”
The first-time mom-to-be with her husband Tim Witherspoon says she is excited to meet her son.
“I can’t wait until he gets here,” she tells Elle.com “I just have a couple more weeks. I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part.”
She also expresses how staying fit, but modifying moves with her trainer Jeanette Jenkins, was important to her. 

“I would tell my trainer ‘this move doesn’t feel right,t and we’d modify it,” the “Motivation” singer said. 

“I still walk two miles everyday…I still work out. It’s important to me.”

On how she would balance life in the spotlight with a child, Rowland says she plans to play it by ear.

Good call!
