Kelly Rowland gives birth to her very own ‘Destiny’s Child’

Congratulations are in order for former Destiny Child star, Kelly Rowland, 33 and her husband manager, Tim Witherspoon, as the couple welcomed their first born son, Titan Jewell, on Tuesday, Nov. 4 at 1:30 p.m. PT, weighing 7.5 lbs.

People magazine was the first to report the good news. “We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son,” said Rowland in her statement. “We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy!”

Rowland was very private during her pregnancy, but did not hide her excitement. She posted a picture on Instagram, with the caption, “I’ll be stuntin’ like my daddy,” of father-and-son Jordan sneakers. After the pregnancy, rumors started to surface; a few days later, she posted a picture of her doing yoga, sharing with the world her growing baby bump.

From yoga to the gym, the multitalented singer remained focused on staying fit and living an active lifestyle during her pregnancy. Even though she did not let her pregnancy stop her, she still was mindful about her unborn child.

“To be honest, I did modify my exercise routine a bit by just listening to my body,” Rowland shared with Elle magazine. “I would tell my trainer [Jeanette Jenkins], ‘This move doesn’t feel right,’ and we’d modify it. I still walk two miles everyday. I still work out. It’s important to me.”

Her friends and “sisters,” Beyoncé and Solange Knowles, shared their excitement about being new aunts and for baby Titan’s arrival. They both posted pictures on Instagram congratulating Kelly.

“There’s no better feeling than holding my beautiful nephew. I thank god for the honor of witnessing my sister’s journey into motherhood,” said Beyoncé’s caption with a black and white photo of her holding the newborn’s hand. “I’ve always dreamt of our little ones growing up together. I’m so thankful for our bond. Baby Ty, I love you so much. Congrats to my Spoons.”

Solange shared two separate black and white photos on Wednesday to congratulate the new mommy. The first post was a photo that Rowland did during a pregnancy photo-shoot for Elle magazine with the caption, “#wcw I witnessed a miracle yesterday. My beautiful sis is a mommy!” The second post was a throwback picture of Kelly, Beyoncé and herself with a beautiful caption expressing her joy of their growth as women.

Now that Rowland has given birth, she is focusing on expanding her family. “I’m very happy,” she expressed E! News. “I’m a very, very happy woman.”
