Three months ago, Kelly Rowland gave birth to her second son, Noah Jon. Due to restrictions placed in light of the pandemic, her loved ones were unable to show up for her in person, so she decided to have them witness the special moment virtually. During a recent interview with “PEOPLE TV,” she revealed that her Destiny’s Child sisters, Beyoncé and Michelle Williams, were among the few who were able to see her son’s arrival.
“We had our family join on Zoom,” she said. “They were able to see Noah come into the world. It was beautiful.” Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson and her mother-in-law were also in attendance.
Following Noah’s delivery, according to Rowland, Bey and Michelle “met him immediately.” She described the encounter during a conversation with “Entertainment Tonight” back in February.
“The girls were literally over here at the house just recently,” the “Coffee” singer recalled. “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.”
Rowland — who is also mother to six-year-old son Titan Jewell — first announced she was expecting in October amid her cover story in Women’s Health magazine. At the time, she explained that she and her husband, Tim Weatherspoon, took advantage of their time home during the pandemic and eventually got pregnant.
In the wake of Noah’s birth, Queen Bey and Michelle have since proved to be “awesome, awesome, awesome” aunts to both him and Titan, Rowland told ET. She then expressed her gratitude for both women and their bond, which she said is “really a gift because we’ve known each other for so long, and the industry doesn’t really make friendships.”
“I’m just so grateful for them, and they are a highlight of my life,” Rowland added. “Not professionally, but our friendship and our sisterhood — you’re going to make me cry.”
