Kelly Rowland is one hot mom-to-be. The “Motivation” singer, who’s just weeks away from giving birth to her first son, shows off her baby bump in the pages of Elle magazine. A beaming Kelly poses completely nude in one of the gorgeous photos, shot by Lance Gross.
She met the House of Payne actor while shooting the video for “Keep It Between Us.” “I remember looking at his Instagram page, and seeing all these crazy hot photos,” said Kelly. “I texted him, and he said he’s really been into [photography]. So we had been planning for a year to shoot and of course, I got pregnant and thought I’ll have Lance shoot the photos for my pregnancy. Lance and I had all these great ideas and we just put our heads together to execute the looks. It was a lot of fun.”
She had no reservations about baring her body. “It’s really—I won’t say amazing—it’s Godmazing [laughs] watching your body carry a human. I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that? The body should be celebrated.”
She’s been obsessed with nachos, cherry pie, and chocolate ice cream, but is making sure to exercise. “All the women that I’ve talked to, that have worked out, have such an easy and speedy delivery.”
While she awaits her baby, Kelly has been recording her new album and is even thinking about starting a children’s line of clothing.
“I can’t wait until he gets here. I just have a couple more weeks,” she said. “I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part.”
