Kelly Rowland on Marriage, Motherhood and Money-Making:”It’s About Finding Your Normal”

elle-01-kelly-rowland-blogKelly Rowland surprised her fans by making a creative announcement via an Instrgram post that suggested that she was pregnant. The baby will be her and her new husband,  Tim Witherspoon’s first child. Since her announcement, the former Destiny’s child member has remained active and fit, showing women that fitness and exercise don’t have to come to a halt when a woman realizes she is pregnant.

The singing sensation sat down with elle.com to discuss balancing marriage, motherhood and moneymaking (career). Her interview is below:

Congratulations on your first child! What are you looking forward to the most about motherhood?

I can’t wait until he gets here. I just have a couple more weeks. I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part.

You’ve become quite a role model for staying fit during pregnancy. What tips would you give for other mothers who want to stay healthy and in shape while pregnant?

Everybody always tells you to go crazy with food, and you can eat whatever you want. It’s fine to have your cravings but I wanted an easier delivery. All the women that I’ve talked to, that have worked out, have such an easy and speedy delivery. Exercise really helps that. And I like being able to have peaceful sleep at night, though there’s no such thing as that now in the last trimester [laughs]. To be honest, I did modify my exercise routine a bit by just listening to my body. I would tell my trainer [Jeanette Jenkins] “This move doesn’t feel right,” and we’d modify it. I still walk two miles everyday. I still work out. It’s important to me.

Any cravings?

I love cherry pie and chocolate ice cream with peanut butter mixed in it. And I had a week straight where I was obsessed with nachos.

Your skin is glowing! What’s your pregnancy beauty regimen?

I’ve switched out anything with harsh chemicals. I use nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter and coconut oil. It’s amazing how all of those things work so well for my skin. I’m going to continue to just use those after the baby gets here.
