Congratulations are in order for Kelly Rowland, who has announced she is expecting her second child with husband Tim Weatherspoon.
The Destiny's Child singer revealed the happy news in a new interview with Women's Health, explaining that she became pregnant soon into lockdown.
"We had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, 'Let's see what happens'," she recalled.
However, Kelly admitted hesitation at revealing the news straight away given the current global state of affairs with the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement and the economic situation.
"But you still want to remind people that life is important," she added. "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."
Kelly is also mother to five-year-old Titan with Tim, and during her interview spoke about raising him amid the current climate of racial tensions in the wake of George Floyd's death.
"I'd just put Titan to bed," she recalled of one evening when the grief over Floyd and Breonna Taylors' deaths overwhelmed her.
"I got into the shower, and I had this real hard, ugly, deep cry. Because I promised to protect my kid. That was the main thing I was thinking about: protecting this little innocence."
