Kelly Rowland Wishes ‘Someone Would Invent Something to Take Away Stretch Marks’
If you know of anything that will remove post-baby stretch marks, do Kelly Rowland a solid and spread the word.
“I wish someone would invent something to take away stretch marks and cellulite,” the former Destiny’s Child member, 35, said with a laugh in Allure‘s Pretty Powerful video.
“If you don’t have stretch marks and cellulite after you had a baby, I really don’t like you. It’s just not fair,” Rowland, who has a 21-month-old son named Titan Jewell with husband Tim Weatherspoon, adds jokingly.

Since giving birth in November 2014, Rowland has adopted workouts such as yoga, spinning and killer ab regimens with her trainer to stay in shape.
“Having a baby challenged and changed the way I looked at my body,” Rowland admits to Allure about her new outlook on her physique.
Another thing she’s learned since having her son? “Me time” is crucial.
“You’re making your schedule for your baby, your husband, and where do you fall into place?” she says. “I was like, ‘I have to give something back to myself first before I can give anything to anybody else.’ I truly believe in that.”
She adds, “If you can’t take care of yourself, you don’t have anything else to give to anybody else. So I’m my No. 1.”
Recently, Rowland reminded fellow mothers not to beat themselves up about body after baby, advising them to instead get back into a fitness regimen at their own pace.
“It takes about a year to get the weight off. Don’t beat yourself up if it takes even longer,” she said in the February issue of Parents magazine. “Write on your mirror in lipstick: ‘I had a baby. I’m a superhero.’ ”
