According to Kelly Rowland, being a mother is Beyonce Knowles' destiny.

"I think she'll be an incredible mother, because she's always been motherly," the 30-year-old "Motivation" singer told Us Weekly of her Destiny's Child pal at Sunday's House of Hype VMAs afterparty.

"She takes so many traits from her mother, and I just think it's going to be so natural for her. It's natural for her now!"

Rowland added that she's know about her pal's pregnancy "for quite awhile," but as long as Knowles, 29, and husband of three years Jay-Z, 41, are happy, "that's all that counts."

Though Rowland said the couple have already begun looking at baby names, she was hesitant to reveal any clues.

On Monday, an insider told Us thatthat the "Love on Top" singer is "close to three months along" in her pregnancy. "She wasn't going to announce it but she is so excited she couldn't hold it in."

First time-father Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter) is just as excited for the next chapter in their lives. "Jay is ecstatic and over the moon," the insider said. "He really wanted this so badly."
