"The Mood Is Different"

Kelly Rowland sings while breastfeeding her newborn son, Noah Weatherspoon. The ‘Black Magic’ singer recently explained to PEOPLE exclusively why she gives her baby a musical selection while feeding him.


“He’s just delicious, and I’m in love,” Kelly told the magazine. “He’s healthy and we’re happy: That’s all that matters,” Rowland shared.

Kelly’s mother, Doris Rowland Garrison, passed away in 2014 after going into cardiac arrest. Doris was 66-years-old at the time and Kelly’s oldest son, Titan Weatherspoon, was only one-month-old. Rowland worked through the emotional distress of losing her mother while nursing her son. The recording artist does not have such a challenge this time around.

“I’m breastfeeding successfully now, and I know it’s because when I’m happy, the mood is different,” Kelly shared with PEOPLE. “I would definitely say what someone once told me is really true: Breastfeeding really does offer itself to emotion as well.”

The emotional experience that comes with breastfeeding is why Rowland sings while engaging in other upbeat activities during nursing sessions with her son. “When I am pumping or anything like that, I always watch something funny,” the celebrity mom shared. “It’s a different outcome. It really is.”

Noah made Kelly Rowland and her husband, Tim Weatherspoon, the parents of two sons. Could there be a baby girl on the horizon someday?

“I’m sure my husband would love a girl. But he’s so happy with his boys right now, and that’s all that matters to me,” Kelly told PEOPLE. “This sounds really crazy, but once you have a girl, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m going to have to share my husband,'” the celebrity mom continued. “Because great fathers really want to be there for their girls. I watch all my guy friends with their daughters, and it’s the sweetest thing.”

Rowland went on to say, “I don’t know. I would love a daughter,” says Rowland, “but I’m really loving being a boy mom right now. It’s really fun.”
