Kelly Rowland revealed the news that she is pregnant with her second child in the November issue of Women's Health.
The Grammy-winning artist, 39, told the magazine she and her husband, Tim Weatherspoon, "had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, ‘Let’s see what happens.'"
Rowland said she got pregnant soon after. She and Weatherspoon are already parents to Titan Jewell Weatherspoon, 5.
The singer told the outlet that she was apprehensive on sharing her pregnancy news publicly but ultimately decided, "You still want 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."
On announcing the news, Rowland also said she was thinking, "'Oh my god, my fans are gonna be so disappointed .… They wanted an album first, but they got a baby! And I was like, ‘I have to figure this out so they get both.'"
The singer did confirm she is planning on a fifth solo album and gave a preview of what's to come. "I want it to feel very organic, coming from me," she said about her music, adding that she likes "to touch on everything" with her songs.
During Rowland's interview with Women's Health, she also spoke how she and her family have been impacted by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and countless other lost Black lives.
"I promised to protect my kid. That was the main thing I was thinking about: protecting this little innocence," she said when reflecting on these deaths.
