Motherhood couldn’t have come sooner for Kelly Rowland . “I actually wish I would have had him sooner,” the singer tells ET. “It’s just so much joy. I just feel so blessed … I try to wake up a little bit earlier than him because I like watching his face in the morning, because he wakes up smiling. It just does something for my spirit.”
Less than a month after Titan was born, Kelly’s mother Doris passed away from cardiac arrest.
“I have the most beautiful picture with Titan and my mom,” Kelly says. “When he came home … he was just right on her chest and she was very happy.”
“There’s moments when I’m changing Titan and he’s just kind of looking over my head and he just bursts out in giggles, and I’m like, ‘Hey, mom,'” she adds. “I just feel like she’s always somewhere near.”
Kelly also remarks that her mother has prepared her for motherhood.
“She prepared me for this time,” she says. “She told me I’d be a great mom. One of the last things she told me was how proud she was of me.”
