Oh, Baby! Kelly Rowland Embraces Her Belly on the Red Carpet

08/25/2014 at 11:45 AM ET

Before Beyoncé had a moment with her loved ones on stage, Kelly Rowland (and her bump!) ruled the red carpet.

The mom-to-be embraced her belly as she arrived to Sunday’s VMAs in a blush-colored Kaufmanfranco halter dress, which she accessorized with stunning interlocking earrings from Lorraine Schwartz and brown diamond bangles.

Rowland, 33, complemented her sparkly sequined ensemble with a braided updo and soft makeup, including a pretty pink lip.

The Destiny’s Child singer had been mostly mum about her pregnancy — up until she slipped during a recent interview and revealed she’s expecting a son with husband Tim Weatherspoon.

“The most shocking thing about pregnancy to me is probably the way your body changes — nobody can prepare you for that,” Rowland told PEOPLE in July.

Not exactly stunning and her hair looks ridiculous. She is not a Swedish milkmaid!!

I really like Kelly. She strikes me as kind. Yes, she is gorgeous and talented, too.

Lovely woman, pretty dress…time for a new hairstylist though!

Dear People Magazine,
Can you please stop using the words stunning and stunned so much when describing a celebrity in a dress? You’re starting to sound like CNN and their constant “Breaking News” headlines. Get a thesaurus and stop being so dramatic. Geesh…

Carrie on

She’s sooooooo classy. Now, we can only hope that some of her class with rub off on Beyonce!

Heather on

She looks great in her dress, but her hair, ugh….

Sandra on

@Charlotte…Do you kick over little kids sand castles too??? Just mean for no reason.

Sophia on

She looks gorgeous! I wish you best of luck and an easy pregnancy, Kelly!

the correct word is “complemented” — and I have never heard a more ludicrous statement than, uh, your body changes when you are pregnant. Uh, what??? Where was her date? Oh, and why were the Kardashians there, they don’t make music.

@Sandra – I, like you, am entitled to my opinion. Headline said she “stuns”. I do not happen to agree and it is my right to say so. Nothing “mean” about it.

Hea on

Charlotte – I think that’s more of a Dutch milkmaid.

Yes, she “stunned,” my housemate had to call the paramedics because I was out cold for 20 minutes, knocked senseless by a frock on television.

very impractical jewelry. The ring on her right hand might as well be a weapon.

If I hear the word “stunning” one more time, I’m going to scream. According to what is out there on the intenet, any celebrity on the face of the earth is stunning. Stop being so lazy and find another word.
