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

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."

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.
