Kelly Rowland pregnant reached headlines on Wednesday with a surprise from Women’s Health magazine. Kelly Rowland first broke the news to Women’s Health over a zoom call.
“Hold on, hold on, I’m just gonna do this,” she says at the top of our Zoom call, standing up suddenly.

“We had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, ‘Let’s see what happens,’” Kelly says of how she and her husband, Tim Weatherspoon, decided to try expanding their family (their son, Titan, turns 6 in November). To Kelly’s surprise, she got pregnant right away. In the midst of her gratitude, she confesses, she felt hesitant to make her joyful news public, with the pandemic, a racial reckoning, and a severe economic downturn roiling the country. She was even uncertain at first about sitting for this interview. “But you still want to remind people that life is important,” she says. “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.”
Nevertheless, she admits she was concerned about her fans.
“I was thinking, Oh my god, my fans are gonna be so disappointed.…They wanted an album first, but they got a baby!” she says. “And I was like, ‘I have to figure this out so they get both.’”
Needless to say her fans are showing pure joy for her announcement. Her family and close celebrity friends also showed happines.
Mother Tina Lawson posted to Kelly Rowland’s Instagram announcement saying, “So happy you are announcing today. It has been very hard keeping this exciting news a secret.”
Mariah Carey also have her congratulations, and Christina Milian seemed shocked saying, “Whaaaattt. Yes. Congratulations sis. Omg so happy for you guys.
