Kelly Rowland's Snapback Game After Pregnancy Is Jaw-Dropping

Kelly Rowland's Snapback Game After Pregnancy Is Jaw-Dropping

Ladies, gather 'round, because we've got to figure out how she's doing this shit.

Kelly Rowland

Our soul sister in our head, Ms. Kelly Rowland, recently welcomed her second precious baby boy, Noah Jon, last month. And *insert screams here* she has already snapped back to her slim, trim, swim figure! Once the five-time Grammy winner got the green light from her doctors, she was mentally prepped to get back into her fitness routine, and sis, I just want to know, like...how?!

Rowland took to Instagram to show off her incredible post-pregnancy bod, posting a video in blue Fabletics gear, as she prepared to head back to the gym. The 40-year-old was all smiles as she told her 10.9M followers:

"So, I'm starting to feel like my old self again. I was actually finally able to put me in a cute little Fabletics outfit. It's the Propel look, to propel me forward to working out, because I'm excited to get to work out again. I got two more weeks 'til I can!"

She was excited, hitting a few running poses, and showing us all up, postpartum, at the same damn time.

Prior to blowing our minds, last month, Rowland and husbae, Tim Weatherspoon, welcomed Noah, as she embraced a full circle moment for their family captioning the announcement:

"On the 21st day, of the 21st year, of the 21st Century, Noah Jon Weatherspoon greeted us! We are truly grateful."

Additionally, of being a new mom as a mother-of-two, Rowland recently told Billboard:

"I still don't know how to be a mother of two, exactly, but I'm figuring it out. It's going to be a unique experience--Titan's not like anyone else on this planet, Noah's not like anyone else on this planet. I'm still navigating myself through motherhood. So the less pressure I put on myself and allow myself grace--because I'm not going to get it right every single time. I think it's only fair to just breathe and use your instincts to navigate your way through. But I've learned not to put so much pressure on myself and to let my creativity flow."

Hallelu.

And if you can remember, Rowland's post-bod after giving birth to first son, Titan, was just as jaw-dropping.

Sis, the waist was snatched! Like...how?

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
