Kelly Rowland’s ‘ELLE’ Maternity Shoot Is Flawless

Seriously though, who looks this great while pregnant?

Kelly Rowland, that’s who. Beyonce’s chocolate goddess of a BFF debuted her maternity photoshoot by actor-turned-amazing-photographer Lance Gross, and the shots are flawless. Baring her nearly full-term belly, Rowland talked her motherhood plans for her baby boy and well as her pregnancy beauty and fitness regimens with ELLE Magazine. Check out a few quotes:

On being excited for motherhood:
I can’t wait until he gets here. 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.

On Lance Gross shooting her maternity photos:
So we had been planning for a year to shoot and of course, I got pregnant and thought I’ll have Lance shoot the photos for my pregnancy. Lance and I had all these great ideas and we just put our heads together to execute the looks. It was a lot of fun.

On exposing her unborn son to celebrity life:
I just plan to play it by ear. Everybody has their normal. And sometimes, award shows are a part of that. I have girlfriends who have that experience, and they’ll say ‘You know, I just really didn’t want to be without my child today.’ And it’s just that simple. It’s about finding your normal, whatever that may be.

On staying fit while pregnant:
Everybody always tells you to go crazy with food, and you can eat whatever you want. It’s fine to have your cravings but I wanted an easier delivery. All the women that I’ve talked to, that have worked out, have such an easy and speedy delivery. Exercise really helps that.
