Kelly Rowland Opens Up About Her 'Undeniable' Bond With Her Son

"It's quite a connection."

Superstar Kelly Rowland gave birth to her son Titan back in 2014 — and from the sounds of it, it seems as though she's loving every minute of being a mom.

"A mother's love for her son — for me, just of course because I had a boy first — is undeniable," the 36-year-old gushed to Essence Live host Dana Blair back in early February.

"You don't realize how incredibly tight that bond is 'til you lock eyes with your baby," she added. "And then you're just overwhelmed with all this emotion and love and you care for somebody so much. I think you know it, but you don't realize the magnitude of it."

The singer also revealed one of her most intimate moments she's had with baby — reminiscing on the first time he said, "I love you, mama."

"I literally went into the kitchen and was like, I'd do anything for you! I'd do anything!" the former Destiny's Child star recalled. "I was just so emotional, because that's literally how you feel. And now I know how parents feel, about us, as their babies — it's quite a connection."

Titan is the Atlanta native's first child, and currently only child, with husband Tim Witherspoon.
