Fans of singer and actress Kelly Rowland have literally watched her grow up before their eyes. From a teenager belting out chart-topping hits with Destiny's Child to now a wife and businesswoman in her forties, her growth is nothing short of remarkable. 

Rowland is also the mother of two sons. The multi-hyphenate and her husband of seven years, Tim Weatherspoon, are parents to Titan Jewell and Noah Jon. Born roughly six years apart, both are regularly seen gracing her Instagram, where she shares both funny and heartwarming moments with her more than 12 million followers.

Outside of social media, Rowland has often opened up about life as a boy mom. Read on for ways she regularly instills confidence in Titan and how her former bandmates played a role in Noah's arrival.

Rowland's first son, Titan Jewell, was born in November 2014.

Rowland and husband Tim Weatherspoon became first-time parents on Nov. 4, 2014, welcoming son Titan Jewell Weatherspoon. 

"The dad picked out the name. It has to do with family," the "Motivation" singer said in August 2014, when giving hints about Titan's name, via People.

Rowland actively encourages her son to love his Black roots.

Even as Titan gets older and begins developing a personality of his own, Rowland nonetheless wants to ensure he maintains a firm understanding of his culture. Speaking with People, the 40-year-old opened up about how she's encouraging the now 7-year-old to love his Black roots.

"There's Black art all around my house," Rowland said. "I literally am like, 'There can't be any identity crises in this house!'

"I remember that was a big thing for me as a kid," recalls the star. "I didn't see enough people around on the walls or anything like that looked like me. So everywhere you turn in our house, there is definitely Black art; you see a representation of yourself."

In addition to the visual reminders, Rowland also revealed, she and her husband emphasize the practice of daily affirmations.

"I was like, 'Son, we are Black. We are beautiful. We are rich in love and history' and this and that. I broke it down for him in a solid maybe three minutes, and I didn't shut up," she says — but her words paid off. "That night, I heard my husband giving him a bath and he goes, 'Daddy, I am Black and handsome and great,'" she told People.

"It's actually written on his mirror: 'I am smart. I am brave. I am kind. I am wonderful. I am Black. I am excited.'

"We read different stories to him as far as African American and African history is concerned. It really means a lot to us for him to know his roots and who he is," she emphasized.

Titan became a big brother in January 2021.

After announcing her surprise pregnancy via a cover of Women's Health magazine, Rowland and Weatherspoon became parents for a second time on Jan. 21, 2021, this time welcoming son Noah Jon.

"On the 21st day, of the 21st year, of the 21st Century, Noah Jon Weatherspoon greeted us," the Atlanta-born star wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of Titan gazing lovingly at his younger bro.

Like other couples in quarantine during the early months of the COVID pandemic, Rowland told People they decided to try for a second and "see what happens."

"Me and my husband were in the middle of COVID just like everybody else … and there's not much to do in the house. We were like, 'We'll just try for a baby, we'll see what happens because we don't know how long this is gonna last.'

"Literally, by the grace of God, God blessed us with a new life. We're just really excited," she gushed.

Former bandmates Beyoncé and Michelle Williams were virtually present for Noah's birth.

As if their bond couldn't be any closer, Rowland disclosed that Destiny's Child groupmates and "sisters" Beyonce and Michelle Williams were able to watch the birth of Noah via Zoom. 

"We had our family join on Zoom," she said, adding Bey's mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, and Rowland's mother-in-law were also present. "They were able to see Noah come into the world. It was beautiful."

Shortly after, Noah's aunties were finally able to meet him in real life.

"The girls were literally over here at the house just recently and when they met the baby, it was like another part of my heart just … being able to share space with Michelle and Bey is truly a gift," the "Say My Name" singer raved to Entertainment Tonight.

"It's really a gift because we've known each other for so long and the industry doesn’t really make friendships… It's the nature of it, and we still have each other after all these years," Rowland added. "And I'm just so grateful for them and they are a highlight of my life."

With two decades in the game, two kids and plenty of life experiences later, we're seeing a different side of Kelly Rowland. Perhaps even, the best is yet to come.
