At Age 39, Kelly Rowland Is Proving It's Never Too Late For Motherhood

"You still want to remind people that life is important."

With all of the celebrity pregnancies this year, it's clear that baby fever has been alive and well all damn year, and the latest star to catch the fever is Kelly Rowland, who is 39 and slaying TF out of her pregnancy.

Kelly, who made her big announcement earlier last week, explained that although family planning had been a goal for her and her husband, she never planned to welcome a new addition to her family during a global pandemic. She told Women's Health:

"We had been talking about it loosely, and then COVID happened, and we were just like, 'Let's see what happens.'"

Many women, including Tamron Hall, Janet Jackson, and Halle Berry have proven that it's never too late to start your motherhood journey and make geriatric pregnancies look damn good. While Kelly is mindful of the ongoing police shootings and COVID-19 pandemic, she's choosing to celebrate and work hard to nurture her newfound blessing because there are no days off when it comes to gratitude––tomorrow isn't a promised.

"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."

Although the "Coffee" singer is a veteran mom with five years of experience under her belt, Kelly told the publication that her pregnancy has been much different this time around. With the current political climate and seemingly unending social unrest, the singer says that she struggles with the idea of bringing an innocent life into such a cruel world.

"I'd just put Titan to bed. 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."

Despite the non-stop cravings, mood swings, and fatigue, the singer says that there has been some upside to going through her pregnancy during quarantine.

"I'm learning so much about myself, and the things that I missed. You say, 'I'm fine, I'm fine'—and yeah, I'm fine—but there are things I would have liked to have experienced from a father. That's where the music piece comes in. I like to touch on everything. I want it to feel very organic, coming from me."
