Kelly Rowland is sharing some sage advice for mothers that has helped the singer and advocate to navigate motherhood.


The mother-of-two told E! News in an exclusive interview that although the advice that she got from her close friend was tough to hear, it was necessary.

“A girlfriend of mine, she was being funny, but she was being honest … was like, ‘You’re gonna screw this up and that’s OK.’ The times you get it right, really celebrate yourself.'”

Rowland continued, saying that, “By nature, the negative trumps the positive moments we should have. So, celebrate yourself when you get everything down. I remember doing that when Noah got to sleeping and I started doing this whole dance around the crib.”

Rowland went on in the interview to share that mother’s should celebrate and recognize alike both the big and small wins. Celebrating both makes a big difference in everyone’s motherhood journey.

“No one is going to celebrate you the way you celebrate yourself. It’s really important to give yourself grace. It’s the most beautiful thing we can give ourselves.”

So, just how does Rowland celebrate her parenting wins and find time to give herself “grace”? Well, keep reading to find out.

“I like to wake up a little extra early in the morning, and wash my face or putting on a serum,” Rowland shared. “That kind of stuff really means a lot to me. Or sitting outside after I’ve gotten the [kids] down. I just sit out there with my thoughts and it’s grounding.”

“The best thing we can do is connect with ourselves and say, ‘Girl, you’re doing a good job.’ Or ‘I’m so proud of you. You really stood up for yourself in that moment. When you put your energy into that, it’s gratefulness.”

She concluded, that that “gratefulness” “grows in other places in your life—and you’re like, ‘I didn’t know that was coming,’ but you deserve it and you put yourself in the space to do so.”

Rowland shares two sons: Titan, 9, and Noah, 3, with  her husband, talent manager Tim Weatherspoon.
