Burning off the baby weight! Kelly Rowland put a lot of hard work into getting the post-baby body she has now. The singer revealed how she dropped a whopping 70 pounds just four months after welcoming her son Titan during an interview on Thursday, Mar. 26.
Up first? Rowland slimmed down with the help of some great trainers. “Jeanette Jenkins is the secret, SoulCycle is the secret,” Rowland, 34, shared with Extra’s AJ Calloway in NYC. “Angela Davis, when I go in there and it’s the wee hours of the morning she is a great secret, so motivational. And Jeanette comes in with so much energy and this huge smile on her face. You can’t help but to get excited about working out.”
Eating healthy, of course, is step two. “The eight, twenty rule is all the way real,” she explained. “Eighty percent of the time you eat those foods giving you nourishment. You’re eating clean. And twenty percent of the time, have guacamole, a ton of it like I do!” Even better? Rowland says that sipping on a margarita and indulging in a little queso from time to time won’t hurt either.
Rowland and her husband Tim Weatherspoon welcomed their first child in November, but the new mom has already headed back to the studio. Earlier this month, she told Us Weekly that doing so was “a hard transition” to get through. “My first trip away from [Titan] was to the Philippines and it was so far. I was thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, I just want to go home and be with my child,'” she said at her Spring Kickoff With Claritin event on Mar. 20. “But literally, it was like a day trip. I went and I came back. Very easy.” She added: “He’s a happy baby, which is what I prayed and asked God for.”
When not making new music, however, one can find Rowland spending time with her Destiny’s Child BFFs Beyonce and Michelle Williams.
“The last reunion happened the other day when we all sat down and were just talking and enjoying each other’s company. It was awesome,” Rowland told Extra. “Not every time you see Destiny’s Child together may be in front of the camera. We still have our bond amongst each other. That’s the most beautiful gift Destiny’s Child has given me.”
As for Titan’s playdates? Rowland told Us that her little guy and Beyonce’s 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy are more like “cousins.”
