That’s one hot mama!
Kelly Rowland is in the final stretch of pregnancy with her first son and the mommy-to-be is celebrating the momentous occasion via a sexy maternity photo shoot with Elle.com. The “Motivation” singer, 33, looks calm and reflective in the images captured by actor and photographer, Lance Gross.
“I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part,” Rowland, who married her manager Tim Weatherspoon in May, told the fashion website.
In one black and white still, Rowland cradles her bare belly, while shielding her exposed top. She’s seated on a wooden crate wearing a black tuxedo with black high heel pumps. The singer’s hair is slicked back into a low chignon.
Another shot features a glowing Rowland holding her belly in a brown silk floor-length nightgown, and wearing the same crown braid hairstyle she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in August.
She told the website that since becoming pregnant, she’s transitioned into an all-natural beauty routine. “I’ve switched out anything with harsh chemicals. I use nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter, and coconut oil,” she said.
As for any criticism headed her way for opting to showcase her pregnancy in the buff, Rowland says women should be proud of their bodies.
“It’s Godmazing watching your body carry a human,” she said. “The body should be celebrated.”
