The once-upon-a-time member of Destiny’s Child, Kelly Rowland discussed her pregnancy and the food cravings that came with the territory. And she also revealed her baby's gender accidentally.
Kelly Rowland let it be known that she was expecting a baby boy. Her hubby Tim Witherspoon who is also her manager is a happy man indeed and so is Kelly.
Kelly expressed her extreme excitement at the fact and said that she had already spoilt the baby by buying everything possible for the little infant that hadn’t even entered the world yet.
“We’re very excited,” Kelly Rowland told Fox411's Meaghan Murphy. “So far, everything has been good. I just feel like the baby is already rotten–like literally, my Caress family has gotten him all of his little bathing stuff, his toys–it’s just so cool.”
From cute funky toys to play with and bathing suits that the little one can don while in the pool, the stuff was something that only a celebrity could afford to purchase for her small wonder.
And she also revealed the gender of her upcoming baby unintentionally. She said, “It, it’s…aw, f--k it! It’s a boy. It’s a boy!” Kelly had not originally intended to tell all.
But by the time the actual fact slipped from her mouth she cursed and laughed and called her husband to tell him that she had told the truth inadvertently.
“Can you please tell him that I spilled the beans?” she said. “I’m sorry, baby,” Kelly said while looking down at her baby bump, adding, “But yes, it’s very exciting.”
When Kelly was queried as to what her friend and mentor Beyonce had to say to her on her pregnancy, she said that powerful women were always supportive and appreciative of each other.
Kelly respects the advice dished out by her girlfriends and there are many of them besides Beyonce. “All my girls have given me advice,” she said diplomatically.
“I have a wonderful crew of girlfriends. As women, we’re powerful, and women have been so supportive. They always have such nice things to say, whether it’s ‘Oh my gosh, you look so nice,’ or giving me different advice, and that feels good.”
She spoke of how one of them told her that she ought to pay attention to her husband as well as the baby. Since it was the husband through whom the pregnancy occurred in the first place, he too deserved a bit of TLC (tender loving care).
Another one of her lady pals told her that she should not be too hands on since playing mommy dearest is too restrictive a lifestyle. There was a whole life and world outside of baby care. Nobody ought to become a recluse in the race of parenthood.
“My baby’s nursery is fly,” Kelly also revealed. “I just wanted it to feel like a comfortable museum. Almost loft-y like. It’s just looks really cool. He’s got these huge pieces of artwork. It’s just really fresh.”
Moreover, Kelly is not going to be a pushy parent. While she claims that the baby boy kicks and moves when you play hip hop music to him from outside the womb, she is not going to groom him to be an Eminem. He can make his own choices for himself when he grows up.
Finally, some of the chow cravings that Kelly got while in the preggers state include: turkey sandwiches with tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and onions. She cannot get enough of them. And she also loved to visit the Nobu restaurant and try their green salad and crab dishes.
