The sweet family photo (shot for the April issue) shows a glowing Rowland, 34, cuddling her little boy as he smiles up at his dad. It's the first clear picture of the tot available to fans; until now, the first-time mom has offered just glimpses of his feet, his back, or his silhouette.
Inside the mag, Rowland opens up about all the big events of the last year, from her May wedding to Weatherspoon in Costa Rica to the birth of her son in November and, sadly, the death of her mom last December.
"My road to happiness hasn't been an easy one. It hasn't been peachy all the time, but I am so, so happy," she told Essence, adding that she's "surrounded with so much love" from friends and family like superstar pal Beyonce and her sister Solange Knowles.
Chief among those loved ones, of course, are Weatherspoon and Titan. "My priority is my husband first," she shared. "That's how the baby got there."
As previously reported, the Destiny's Child alum gave birth to her beautiful baby boy on Nov. 4. "We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son, Titan Jewell Weatherspoon," she told Us in a statement. "We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy!"
