Beyoncé, Michelle Williams watched Kelly Rowland’s Zoom birth


It was a Destiny’s Childbirth to remember. 

While welcoming her second son in January, “Independent Women” co-singer Kelly Rowland had former bandmates Beyoncé, 39, and Michelle Williams, 41, to digitally depend on for moral support. 

“We had our family join on Zoom,” Rowland, 40, told People of giving birth to her and husband Tim Weatherspoon’s now-3-month-old baby, Noah Jon, on Jan. 21. 

She and Weatherspoon, 40, married in May 2014 and share 6-year-old son Titan Jewell. 

“[Beyoncé and Williams] were able to see Noah come into the world. It was beautiful,” the Grammy-winner said. 

Rowland, Beyoncé and Williams were the members of ’90s girl group Destiny’s Child at the height of the band’s fame. 

During the early 2000s, the R&B collective skyrocketed to international fame with chart-toppers like “Say My Name,” “Survivor” and “Cater 2 U.”

But due to COVID concerns amid the pandemic, Rowland’s “Bootylicious” besties — whom she lauded as “awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome aunts” to her boys — were unable to attend the birth in person.

Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, 67, and Weatherspoon’s mom, Jackie, also dialed in to witness Noah’s birth via Zoom. (Rowland’s mother, Doris Rowland Garrison, died of a heart attack in December 2014 at 66.) 

But as soon as it was safe for Beyoncé and Williams — whom Rowland called her “sisters” — to meet baby Noah in person, the “Bills, Bills, Bills” boomers booked it to the baby boy’s crib.  

“The girls were literally over here at the house just recently, and when they met the baby, it was like another part of my heart just … Being able to share space with Michelle and Bey is truly a gift,” Rowland told Entertainment Tonight in February. 

“I’m just so grateful for them, and they are a highlight of my life,” added the teary-eyed “Motivation” singer. “Not professionally, but our friendship and our sisterhood — you’re going to make me cry.”

Rowland went on to say that the platinum-selling success she realized alongside Beyoncé and Williams doesn’t compare to their unbreakable bond. 

“I always say with Destiny’s Child, the singing together and winning awards and everything like that is great,” she noted.

“But the friendship that we share still to this day … I can’t even tell you.”

The “Say My Name” singers sold more than 60 million records worldwide before taking an indefinite sabbatical as a group act in 2005. 

Each went on to have a successful solo music career — most notably Beyoncé, who earned the title as the most Grammy Award-winning woman in history last month.
