To say the last year has been tough would be a massive understatement. The threat of COVID-19 forced us to adjust to a new sense of normal and separated many of us from our loved ones for an extended amount of time. Kelly Rowland’s experience was no different: the singer spent the last half of 2020 awaiting her second child with husband Tim Weatherspoon before she gave birth in February. While her family wasn’t able to be physically present for baby Noah Jon’s arrival, Rowland made the best of the difficult situation and made sure her family was still able to witness the miracle of life via Zoom. Yep, you read that right, Kelly Rowland gave birth over Zoom — and in a new exclusive interview with SheKnows, she told us exactly how it all went down.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 23 years since Destiny’s Child released its debut album. Fast forward to 2021, and Rowland has become a mom of two, an established solo singer who just released her EP “K,” and is still showing off her impeccable dance skills. (Seriously if you haven’t seen this video of her rocking her stuff with a full baby belly you’re missing out). While the days of the infamous girl group are long gone, the friendship that Rowland, Beyoncé, and Michelle Williams created is sure to last forever. And now that two of them have a brood of little ones, they’ve bonded even more. We asked Rowland whether Williams or Beyoncé would be the better babysitter and her response was too sweet.
Nowadays, Rowland has her hands full with her newborn at home, and she shared how Dawn Powerwash Dish Spray has made at least one task — cleaning dishes — simpler. “It’s actually been in my family for years,” Rowland told us of the brand, adding, “A girlfriend of mine told me about this Dawn Powerwash Dish Spray and the way she described the whole ‘spray, wipe, rinse’ and it being as fast as it was and it cutting the clean up time — she was like ‘I promise you, I know you got Noah, I promise you the time is going to be quicker you get to just spray the dishes.’ It literally cut the time like into nothing.”
And like so many of us, Rowland’s time at home this last year opened her eyes to the other side of all that home-cooking: “I found out that even if you learn how to cook, all those dishes add up, cause you’re making breakfast, lunch, and dinner!” she said. “So it definitely cut all that time in half; I’m super grateful.”
