Baby joy for Kelly Rowland

Baby joy for Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland has given birth to a baby boy.

The 33-year-old star welcomed her first child with husband Tim Witherspoon into the world yesterday afternoon, her representative has confirmed to PEOPLE magazine.

Following the birth of son Titan Jewell, who weighed in at 7.5lbs, Kelly said: "We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son.

"We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy!"

The former Destiny's Child singer - who confirmed she and Tim were expecting a boy earlier this year - has shown much excitement about the arrival of her first child throughout much of her pregnancy.

Speaking about naming her son, who she's already bought a pair of mini Air Jordan trainers for, she said previously: "The dad picked out the name. It had to do with family."

And just last month the raven hair beauty posed for a number of nude photos, in which her growing baby bump was at its biggest.

She said of the imminent arrival of baby Titan: "When the baby gets here, it's not just one baby. I have two babies now. My husband and the baby - you have to take care of both."

Kelly first announced she and Tim were pregnant in June, just one month after they tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Costa Rica.
