It takes a very special kind of woman who has the courage to strip only weeks away from giving birth, but then again there is no denying former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland is very special. A big fan of prenatal fitness, Rowland took her kit off for ELLE Magazine and talked about prenatal fitness. No surprise there then as the 33-year-old who is expecting her first child with husband Tim Witherspoon, has become a bit of a prenatal fitness poster girl, with her toned bump and frequent workout Instagram posts.
Here is what Rowland had to say to ELLE.
Tips on how to stay in shape while pregnant:
Everybody always tells you to go crazy with food, and you can eat whatever you want. It’s fine to have your cravings but I wanted an easier delivery. All the women that I’ve talked to, that have worked out, have such an easy and speedy delivery. Exercise really helps that. And I like being able to have peaceful sleep at night, though there’s no such thing as that now in the last trimester [laughs]. To be honest, I did modify my exercise routine a bit by just listening to my body. I would tell my trainer [Jeanette Jenkins] “This move doesn’t feel right,” and we’d modify it. I still walk two miles everyday. I still work out. It’s important to me.
On her pregnancy beauty regimen:
I’ve switched out anything with harsh chemicals. I use nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter and coconut oil. It’s amazing how all of those things work so well for my skin. I’m going to continue to just use those after the baby gets here.
On what she is looking forward to most about motherhood:
I can’t wait until he gets here. I just have a couple more weeks. I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part.
On pregnant women getting flack for sharing nude pictures:
I don’t know why they would get flack. It’s really—I won’t say amazing—it’sGodmazing [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.
We can’t agree more – Kelly’s pregnancy body looks worthy of a celebration, surely. What do you think?
