Fans got an up-close and personal look at Kelly Rowland during Sunday night’s airing of 60 Minutes. The singer opened up about her life as a celebrity and how she coped with the sudden loss of her mother, Doris Rowland Garrison, just weeks after giving birth to her son, Titan Witherspoon.
“It was hard because I’d just watched my son come into this world and I actually watched her go,” Kelly revealed. The singer became emotional while talking about her mom’s heart attack that “just came out of nowhere” and was unable to tell Peter Stefanovic about her final words to Doris before she died. “It’s one of my greatest regrets,” Kelly revealed. “It’s something I’ll carry to my grave… or eventually talk about, but I’m not ready now.”
Kelly Rowland welcomed her son on November 4, 2014. Doris passed away on December 2, 2014, which was less than a month after Titan’s arrival. Kelly mourned the sudden loss of her mother online with a candid of herself bonding with Titan. “My only sunshine,” Kelly captioned. “You make me happy, when skies are grey #TITAN #LIFE.”
More than two years have passed since Doris’ death and, although she thinks about her mom every day, Kelly finds ways to move forward. “There’s not a day that goes by I don’t think of her,” the singer said on 60 Minutes. However, Titan is “a happy kid, and that makes me feel like I’m doing a good job. And he just makes me feel life feel worth living.”
Titan is Kelly Rowland and husband Tim Witherspoon’s only child. He celebrates his third birthday this year.
