Kelly Rowland Welcomes Son Titan Jewell

Just call it destiny: Kelly Rowland is a mama!

The singer welcomed her first child with husband Tim Weatherspoon on Tuesday, Nov. 4, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Born at 1:30 p.m. PT, son Titan Jewell Weatherspoon weighed 7.5 lbs.

“We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son,” the Talk a Good Game singer said in a statement.

“We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy!”

Throughout much of her pregnancy, the mom-to-be, 33, let her photos do the talking, posting a snapshot of big and mini Air Jordans in June with the caption, “I’ll be stuntin’ like my daddy.”

In July, Rowland confirmed she was expecting a son — and even dropped hints about her baby boy’s name.

“The dad picked out the name. It has to do with family,” Rowland, who showed off her baby belly at the VMAs in August, said.

But her biggest belly reveal came in October, when the proud expectant mama bared it all in a series of nude shots.

“I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that?” she told Elle.

Now that she’s a new mom, Rowland is pulling double duty, caring for Titan Jewell and her newlywed husband. “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,” she joked to PEOPLE in September.

Anna on

Very happy that all went well love the name. Wow another 4th I’m sure Beyoncé is happy. May god be with you and the two leading men in you’re life.

jean on

Ahh…another ridiculous baby name. Set aside cash now for the kid’s therapy bills.

selena on

Jean,go eff off. It isnt a horrible name and im sure this child with an “odd” name would still have a better life than you. They perhaps wont be so bitter towards a baby. Idiot.

Better than Aiden, Michael, James and the other million names everyone gives their kids. To the point bow last names are used in class because you cannot tell them apart.

So sick of bozos like you policing what the hell someone else decides to name their child.

Grow up.

He’s a black baby. Black people always have had unique names before white people started all the weird names. North is a dumb name Titan is cute.

angie on

Love the name. Very happy for them!

Niko on

Seriously, Prof2? Was all that spamming necessary?
Anyway, Titan is not a horrible name for a baby boy. Its rather unique and masculine. Goes quite well with the surname “Witherspoon”, I might add.

Ashley on

Great. Now it’s going to be a popular name. We named my son Titan 5 years ago because we wanted something unique… Probably won’t be much longer. 😬
