Rowland took to Instagram on Oct. 7, to share her exciting news with her 10.4 million followers. Her post showed her gracefully exposing her baby bump on the November cover of Women’s Health Magazine. She captioned the post that shows her wearing a gold flowy dress “SURPRISE!! My @womenshealthmag cover issue is online now and on newsstands next week!” Many people couldn’t contain their excitement over the singer’s new bundle of joy, including Beyonce’s Mama Tina Knowles Lawson who admitted she is relieved that the secret is finally out. “So Happy you are announcing today!!! It has been hard keeping this exciting news a secret Congrats Tim and Titan too❤️❤️❤️❤️ grandchildren yayyyy!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️”
Many fans also congratulated the “Destiny Child” singer.
“I’m gonna be an auntie!!!🥰”
“Congratulations ❤️ I hope it’s a girl 💕”
“Congratulations god bless wishing her a safe pregnancy and delivery god bless ❤️❤️❤️❤️”
“Congratulations beautiful 😍, that coffee ☕ in the morning does a body good!!” one fan said in reference to Rowland’s song “Coffee” released earlier this year.
In an interview with Women’s Health Magazine, the 39 year old shared that although she and her husband were talking about expanding their family, her pregnancy was something that just happened. “We had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, ‘Let’s see what happens.’ ” Rowland, who also shares a 5-year-old son, Titan Jewell Weatherspoon, with her husband also admitted that she got pregnant fairly quickly.
“The Voice Australia” coach said that she was a little reluctant to announce her pregnancy for different reasons, including that the country is facing a pandemic along with a racial reckoning of sorts. Another reason was a fear of disappointing her fans because they were expecting a new album, given the fact her last record “Talk A Good Game” dropped seven years ago. Still, these concerns couldn’t outweigh the bigger picture for her — that of being able 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.” In regards to the album, the “Coffee” singer says, “I have to figure this out so they get both.’”
Rowland also confessed to the magazine that she decided to spend her first trimester in bed because she felt an “overwhelming sense of exhaustion hit.” Before doctors confirmed that Rowland was expecting, she was following a jam-packed schedule, which included flying out to Sydney, Australia, for work on the Aussie version of “The Voice,” dropping off her son to school, and rigorous 90-minute workout sessions that consist of cardio, weighted crunches and band work. The model says since finding out she was pregnant, her fitness regimen has shifted to yoga, walking and stretching with a physical therapist.
Rowland, who got married and welcomed her son in 2014, is expected to deliver her second bundle of joy later this year.
