"It hasn’t been something that we’ve talked about at all," Rowland, 34, tells Us. "We’ve just been enjoying each other, whether it’s been about our music, whether it’s been about motherhood or our personal lives. That’s what it’s really been about. That’s been the most beautiful part."
As previously reported, Rowland and her bandmates — Beyonce and Michelle Williams — last performed together at the 30th Annual Stellar Awards in Las Vegas in March. Before that, Rowland and Williams joined Bey for her 2013 Super Bowl halftime show. (Bonus: Rowland revealed her fave Destiny's Child song is "Love" and "Bootylicious" is the best music video look.)
"We absolutely are [family]," Rowland says. "We love each other."
The trio may be more like sisters, but they probably will be celebrating Halloween with their own families this year. (They did, however, dress up as superheroes for Ciara's 30th birthday bash last week.) The "Dumb" singer and her husband, Tim Weatherspoon, are the proud parents of 11-month-old son, Titan.
"About a month ago he started walking," Rowland said of his latest milestone. "There are so many different things, from the moment I was changing him and I heard him say ‘Dada’ for the first time and it was the same way when he said ‘Mama’ for the first time at the changing table."
Rowland and her baby boy plan to go as Minnie Mouse and Micky Mouse, respectively, this holiday season. But before heading home from the east coast, the Empire actress volunteered in Newark, N.J., on Wednesday. Partnering with M&M's, she helped to hand out 15,000 costumes to residents.
"I think about when I was younger, my mom wanted to get me a Halloween costume and we basically made ours up," she tells Us. "So, it’s really nice to give back to the community in this way. To create more memories for kids to have when they get older."
