We’re aiming toward the finish line, staying on close baby bump watch for Kelly Rowland. While the usually private singer has gives us ‘baby’ glimpses into her pregnancy, she’s baring all in her ELLE.com interview. Shot by actor Lance Gross, the 33-year-old star talks getting nude for her pregnancy shoot, what type of celebrity mom she plans to be and being fit while pregnant.
On being a role model for women to stay fit 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 what type of celebrity mom she plans to be and if she’ll take her child out to high profile events:
I just plan to play it by ear. Everybody has their normal. And sometimes, award shows are a part of that. I have girlfriends who have that experience, and they’ll say ‘You know, I just really didn’t want to be without my child today.’ And it’s just that simple. It’s about finding your normal, whatever that may be.
