Former Destiny’s Child star Kelly Rowland announced her first pregnancy with husband Tim Witherspoon in June and now the singer is just weeks away from welcoming her new bundle of joy — a baby boy.
Rowland recently sat down with Elle.com to talk about what she can’t wait for in becoming a first-time mom.
“I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part,” she told Elle.
She continued, “this is something I’ve wanted. I’ve been talking about babies since last year. I believe I spoke it into existence during a conversation with my friend, and I feel like I became pregnant overnight!”
She also talked about staying in shape during her pregnancy.
“Everybody always tells you to go crazy with food, and you can eat whatever you want. It’s fine to have your cravings, but I wanted an easier delivery. All the women that I’ve talked to, that have worked out, have such an easy and speedy delivery,” she said. “Exercise really helps that. And I like being able to have peaceful sleep at night, though there’s no such thing as that now in the last trimester [laughs].”
Rowland, 33, has not just been active in hopes of an easier delivery. The pop icon has been only using beauty products that don’t contain chemicals.
“I use nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter and coconut oil. It’s amazing how all of those things work so well for my skin,” she added.
As for what kind of mom Rowland will be, she said, “I just plan to play it by ear.”
It was also important for Rowland to show off her “Godmazing” body and do it naturally, by posing nude.
“I don’t know why they would get flack,” she said of other expectant moms posing nude. “It’s really — I won’t say amazing — it’s Godmazing (laughs) watching your body carry a human. 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.”
