  • Kelly Rowland has said nothing will stop her being at the birth of her Beyonce's baby

    Kelly Rowland has said nothing will stop her being at the birth of her friend and former bandmate Beyonce’s first child.


    The ex-Destiny’s Child singer revealed she has insisted on being present for the birth of Beyonce’s baby.

    The X Factor judge said that sharing such an important experience with her friend is something she does not want to miss out on.

    Kelly told the Daily Mail, ‘I wouldn’t miss the birth of Beyoncé’s baby. I can’t. I don’t want to miss those moments. It’s life happening to people that I love and I want to be a part of it.’

    The 30-year-old singer said she had missed out on another friend’s birth and didn’t want to do that again.

    ‘My best friend had a baby and I wasn’t there to see the baby born. I get choked up even now talking about it because I wasn’t there.

    ‘So now it’s important to me to share those moments with my friends and with my family.’

    What with her hectic schedule, Miss Rowland said she had to ‘watch my best friend’s baby being born on Skype.’

    Beyonce announced that her and hubby Jay Z would be having their first child together, due early next year.

    Despite her eagerness to be there to support Beyonce, she may have lost out on number one Godmother position as it is thought Kelly accidentally revealed the sex of the baby by repeatedly referring to the child as ‘she’ during an interview earlier this month.

    Luckily for the X Factor contestants Beyonce’s baby is expected to be born in February, so Kelly shouldn’t have to miss out on any more performances.

    The X Factor judge has been criticised for leaving her girl acts alone again this week, as she shoots a new music video in France.
