Kelly Rowland accidentally reveals her baby's gender

Kelly Rowland is thinking blue these days now that she accidentally revealed she's having a baby boy. The slip-up happened during an interview with Fox 411 about the MTV Video Music Awards and her partnership with Caress for an #AmpYourFab photo contest.

She told the site, "We're very excited. So far, everything has been good. I just feel like the baby is already rotten — like literally, my Caress family has gotten him all of his little bathing stuff, his toys — it's just so cool."

That's when she realized her mistake. After a big sigh, she laughed, "It, it's… aw, f*** it! It's a boy. It's a boy!"

Once the secret was out in the open, the former Destiny's Child member knew she had to do some quick damage control. She had her publicist immediately call her husband and manager Tim Witherspoon.

She asked, "Can you please tell him that I spilled the beans?"

The mother-to-be then rubbed her belly and said with a smile, "I'm sorry, Baby, but yes, it's very exciting."

While Rowland didn't say which of her famous celebrity mommy friends gave her advice, she did repeat some of her favorite helpful hints.

"One girlfriend told me to make sure that I do not forget about my husband. She's like, 'That's how the baby got here,'" dished Rowland. "The other one said that I should make sure that I don't get obsessed with 'mommy, mommy, mommy' conversation. There's a life outside of it, and you have to remember your life there, too. And just knowing my power as a woman, going into this whole birthing situation. People have done it for years!"

Rowland announced her pregnancy in early June.
