Merry Liddle Christmas star Kelly Rowland, her husband Tim Weatherspoon, and their kids, Titan and Noah are in the holiday spirit.
“MERRY CHRISTMAS. From: Da’ Spoons. Wishing joy, love, and prosperity. To you and all of your loved ones!” Kelly captions the family’s holiday photo.
“The day after Halloween, literally, my Christmas tree was up,” the singer and mom of two tells Yahoo Life in a new video interview. “I do not play Christmas games. I love to feel Christmas — at least for two months, sometimes two and a half months.”
This holiday season marks the first Christmas for Kelly’s baby boy Noah. The musician and Weatherspoon welcomed their second child on January 30th of this year, making 7-year-old Titan a big brother. Noah and Titan have a six-year age gap between the two of them and it can be a challenge, according to their mom.
“The space in between is so wild,” she says. “I was like, ‘Oh yeah, this is gonna be great. [Titan’s] gonna be a great helper.’ But literally, if Noah’s learning to walk, Titan is actually … learning to play chess. It’s such different times and developmental things [that they’re each going through]. Granted, Titan is the best big brother, but the space in between, I’m like, oh my God, what was I thinking?”
Nevertheless, Rowland says that “every morning is like Christmas” with her boys and that being their mother is the “sweetest blessing that I feel like I’ve ever gotten a chance to have.”
“It’s just like this moment in the world where only our space exists and we just sit there and we talk,” she says of spending time with her boys. “And to talk to a little human and to hear their perspective and how they digest things is just mind-blowing because it’s so simple, but it’s so effective. And when we have those moments, I just cry.”
“… Even with Noah, just wrestling with him in the bed and him just looking at me and then kissing me on my nose — I’ll never get those moments back. You kind of wish you could just save them and put them in a special box. It’s so beautiful. I’m so grateful to be a mom.”
