Christian Post Report – Two years after her mother passed away, singer Kelly Rowland is grateful to God that she is surrounded by supportive women.
The 35-year-old mother of one-year-old Titan Jewell Weatherspoon spoke about her former Destiny’s Child members and singer Solange Knowles being a blessing to her.
” I can call Michelle for prayer. I call Bey for motherly advice,” Rowland told HuffPost Live. “I call Solange [Knowles] for school advice. … like all of my friends who are mothers. It’s just really a blessing.”
Entertainers like Jennifer Hudson are part of a list of famed people that Rowland is thanking God for.
“It’s so awesome to have women in the industry, who are so beautiful, so hard working and secure and lovely women who want to be there to support you,” she said. “So I’m just so grateful to God I have that circle of women around me.”
Aside from her girlfriends in the industry, Rowland has leaned heavily on her husband, Tim Witherspoon, and son for support. While on “The Meredith Vieira Show” last year, Rowland spoke about her husband and son helping her deal with the loss of her mother.
“It’s definitely been a challenge. My husband says, ‘You know babe you should think about it as a new normal,'” Rowland told host Meredith Vieira. “I think I’ve done that but I’m so blessed to have my son. I don’t think I’ve had the time to really really grieve but I feel her presence often.”
Rowland went on to describe instances when she felt her mother was present with her son.
“Something that happened the other day Titan was laughing and I was like ‘what is this boy laughing at’ because it was such a belly filled giggle. He was looking up and smiling and laughing,” Rowland recalled on the talk show. “I was like, that’s mom. I just know she is always near and I am just so grateful for that.”
Despite her loss, Rowland believes there was a divine plan in place saying, “God gave me an angel, he took one of my angels away but he still has her covering and hovering over us and I’m so blessed for that.”
After the loss of her mother, Rowland released a heartfelt statement to fans about losing the important woman in her life.
“It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison. She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman — and now mother — I am today,” Rowland said in a statement obtained by E! News. “We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Now, Rowland is able to reflect and realize that her son helped her get through the tough time.
“It was a tough, emotional point for me. I remember not wanting to be sad for Titan,” she told XO Necole. “I wanted to keep myself together because I believe that all that stress and grief can be passed on to your baby. Knowing Titan needed me, and having that to focus on, helped me through.”
Rowland is starring and executive producing the BET show “Chasing Destiny,” which airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
