Kelly Rowland Glows in Nude Pregnancy Photos
Whoa, mama! Kelly Rowland looked beyond flawless in a recent Elle magazine photo shoot, proudly showing off her growing belly bump (and some serious skin!) in several nearly naked shots.
In one black-and-white photo, the soon-to-be first-time mom sits topless, with nothing but a black blazer draped over her shoulders as she stares into the camera, one hand on her bump and another across her chest. We think that she looks totally gorgeous -- and we're beyond obsessed with her dewy skin. Another shot shows Rowland completely naked, rocking some softly curled, longer extensions in her hair with a big smile on her face. (You can check out the photos here.) Work it, girl!
But the former Destiny's Child singer didn't just sit and look pretty, she also dished on her pregnancy, her skin care regimen, how she manages to stay so fit -- and why being photographed naked was so important to her.
As for that amazing pregnancy glow, Rowland tells ELLE magazine she uses "nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter and coconut oil" on her skin, and that she exercises by walking two miles a day and "listening to her body."
And speaking of her body, Rowland explained to ELLE that she wanted to "celebrate" it with the stunning nude photo shoot.
"It's really — I won't say amazing — it's Godmazing watching your body carry a human," Rowland revealed, laughing. "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."
And in a few weeks, it looks like she'll have something else to celebrate as well -- the birth of her first-born son.
"I can't wait until he gets here," she gushed. "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."
