Kelly Rowland Admits That Her Second Pregnancy Is 'Dramatically Different' From Her First

The soon-to-be-mother of two is gearing up for giving birth during a pandemic.

Kelly Rowland has evolved into Wonder Woman. Her regality oozes; her sister-girl vibe exudes. And she has become one of the most relatable women to grace the forefront of black culture.

In 2014, Rowland, 39, gave birth to her only son, Titan, who we've all grown to love. And this past October, she announced that her and husband, Tim Witherspoon, are expanding their family and expecting their second child.

In an interview with Hollywood Life, Rowland says she's "super grateful" and "excited" to welcome her second child, but that there's certainly differences from her current pregnancy in comparison to the first.

"[I'm] tired! I forgot what it was like to be pregnant! I'm out of breath every week this kid gets heavier and heavier. I forgot what going up the stairs was like—a marathon."

She continued:

"It's really real and it's definitely different from my first pregnancy. I was talking to a girlfriend about that last night, I was like, 'No one told me! No one told me it was like this!' and she was like, 'Was your pregnancy with Titan not like this?' and I was like, 'No! it was so dramatically different and I wish someone would've told me. Not to complain. I'm super grateful for the opportunity just to be trusted to be a mother again."

Another key difference, is that the soon-to-be-mother of two is gearing up for giving birth during a pandemic.

"The way we've learned so much about this virus from what we do know, things change and I just want to make sure that my baby is safe, that I'm safe and that we get back to our home safe with no worries or anything. I keep thinking about, of course, my household, but I can't stop thinking about all of these doctors and nurses who are away from their families and I just pray to God that everything goes smooth the way that it went with the birth of my son Titan. I just want to be able to have the baby, leave the hospital and come back home because it's so many other people that are going through so much and they're hoping to be able to get back home to their families, for sure."

Regardless of the differences, Rowland, husband, and brother are all ecstatic about their new addition.

"We actually let Titan name the baby. I don't know how he came up with it. We were just as shocked because funny enough, the name that he chose was on my list, I just didn't tell him."

She then followed up with the ultimate praise for the new big brother:

"I feel like me and Titan, we knew each other in a past life. I just feel like we are so incredibly connected."

Additionally, Rowland, who will be 40 in February, says she's taking it much easier this time. During her pregnancy with Titan she admits, "She took her fitness to the next level." This time, the Destiny's Child singer "kept it to yoga, walks and stretches alongside a physical therapist."

Kissing is such a fascinating thing — to me. The reason why I say that is because, if the person you are exchanging a kiss with is someone who is good at it, it can be the sexiest, most special and most exhilarating thing ever. On the other hand, if they aren't so good — it's just gross. I don't know about y'all, but kissing is such a big deal in my world that I once broke up with someone, in part, because they totally sucked at doing it. It was like, no matter how hard I tried to explain to them what I needed in order to feel like we were in "kissing sync", they would continue to go off and do their own thing. All over my face (yuck).

Money Talks is an xoNecole series where we talk candidly to real women about how they spend money, their relationship with money, and how they spend it.

Samari Ijezie is the creator of The Female Economist, a platform created to challenge and disrupt the stereotypical gender norms within the financial industry while educating millennials of financial literacy. However, before founding this financial literacy company for women and marginalized millennials, she had a career in fashion and style as a model that started in her preteen years. Though she briefly kicked off her modeling career at the age of fourteen, it was short-lived because soon after high school, Ijezie decided to go off to college but later had to drop out during her freshman year due to not receiving financial assistance in the next term.

Many people love October for the new fall fashion fits, changing weather, and never-ending horror movies. And while all of those are valid reasons, there's another one that should be added to the mix, the fact that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Like many, cancer has impacted my family personally, and I'm well aware of the forever effect it can have on individuals, loved ones, and survivors. That's why I appreciate that this month serves as a personal reminder to donate, foster community, and volunteer toward a fight that affects so many of us.

There's that old wives' tale that sex before a sports match is a major no-no for athletes, but when it comes to us everyday folk, consistent lovemaking does the mind and body good. In fact, sex and productivity can actually go hand in hand. A recent multiple-university study found that professionals who had sex the night before going into work had "more positive moods" that increased work engagement and job satisfaction.
