Kelly Rowland told Beyonce and Michelle Williams about her pregnancy before anyone else.
Singer Kelly Rowland, 39, announced her second pregnancy in October and now, she admits she couldn’t keep it from her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Beyonce, 39, and Michelle Williams, 41, for very long. “The ladies were the first two that I called when I got pregnant,” Kelly told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during a chat from her home on Dec. 4 while promoting her partnership with the Amazon Treasure Truck for their first ever live beauty event that happened on Dec. 3. “The bond that we share is so much bigger and deeper than music. I feel like what Destiny’s Child has given me is a beautiful, round sisterhood that is a blessing that I’m so grateful for.”
Already mom to son Titan, 5, with husband, Tim Weatherspoon, 46, Kelly admits she was a bit surprised to hear she was pregnant again. “We tried and we just wanted to see what would happen and literally I went to the doctor and she was like, “Well, the trying worked,” Kelly admitted. “And I said, ‘OK, well here we go.’”
Known for their plethora of hit singles such as Bills, Bills, Bills, Survivor and Say My Name, Kelly is an OG member of Destiny’s Child, along with Beyonce’. The group, which formed in 1990 under the name Girl’s Tyme, was managed by Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles. After a few changes in group members along the way, the ladies found Michelle, who joined them in 2000.
After selling 60 million albums to date, it’s no surprise that the ladies have maintained a tight friendship ever since. But despite remaining successful besties all these years, there are no plans in the works for new music. “We haven’t talked about it,” Kelly said. “I literally answer this question the same way for the past I don’t know how many years. Me and the girls get together and sometimes people will never know. We are on phone calls and texts. Destiny’s Child is deeper than music which is the greatest gift, actually.”
One thing Kelly is working on during her pregnancy while at home is her skin care routine! She teamed up with other experts in the beauty field from the comfort of their homes to host the Amazon Beauty Spotlight experience where she shared some of her favorite products. “It’s the first live virtual beauty even that they’ve done and it’s exciting because I get the opportunity to talk about beauty products which I absolutely love,” Kelly said. “Anything with retinol makes me super happy. I do not play when it comes to the sun, so SPF, really, starts my day off every morning. A good face wash. For my personally in my skin, I am not good with oil and cream based facial washes, so I like something that strips the skin and I’m able to put everything back in with serums and moisturizers or this and that.”
