There’s a few things I do not have the patience for and one of them is shading and speaking negatively of someone else’s child. Even as someone without children I know that much, so, it surprises me when other grown adults, who do have children, aren’t aware that it’s unacceptable.
Although the newly married Kelly Rowland, to music manager Tim Witherspoon, is basking in the glory of being pregnant with her first child, The Atlantic Wire thought it was appropriate to shade the singer, who announced her pregnancy earlier this week.
Price Peterson, the author of the article, first questioned whether Rowland was actually pregnant and a if so predicted the child, believed to be a baby boy, would be, Beyonce and Jay’s toddler daughter, Blue Ivy’s future personal assistant.
The article continued with…
Well! It appears that former Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland has heeded that need (or at least has moved to honor a Beyoncé-decreed legal obligation) and has become pregnant! That’s right, following her whirlwind romance, Skype engagement, and under-publicized wedding to a gentleman named Tim Witherspoon, Kelly Rowland has announced her pregnancy on Instagram! The cryptic announcement was really just a pair of baby Air Jordans next to a regular-sized pair and the caption “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.” That’s about it as far as pregnancy confirmations, though, so please be advised this entire incident miiight just be an example of a woman buying baby clothes for herself before getting pregnant. Would you put that sort of thing past Kelly Rowland? Don’t answer that. Let’s just assume she’s pregnant. But I know what you’re thinking: How exactly could a possible boy-child become the first member of Blue Ivy’s “ma gurls”? That is for you and your outdated gender notions to work through. Congratulations to Kelly Rowland and Blue Ivy Carter! May the future Rowland-Witherspoon child be as fastidious at signing non-disclosure agreements as he/she will be at carrying out Starbucks orders.
Just wow! Really?
Rumors of Rowland’s pregnancy emerged when she was photographed looking rounder in her stomach earlier this week. It didn’t take long for Rowland to confirm the reports were true when she shared the below image (the author speaks of) via Instagram.
The couple exchanged vows, last May, in a private ceremony in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
Rowland’s Destiny’s Child band mates, Beyonce and Michelle Williams were said to be in attendance.
CK readers what are your thoughts on the matter? Was the author being disrespectful or was the article meant to be entertaining?
I would love to hear your opinion.
