Kelly Rowland Reveals that Spoiling Beyoncé’s Gender Was Her Worst Moment: Here’s What Happened
Kelly Rowland has had many memorable moments in her career, but one of them still haunts her to this day.
The former Destiny’s Child singer revealed that she accidentally spoiled the gender reveal of Beyoncé’s first child, Blue Ivy, back in 2011.
Rowland made the confession on the Yeah, I F**ked That Up podcast, hosted by Billy Mann.
She said that it was her biggest mistake ever during an interview and that she felt terrible about it.
How Did Kelly Rowland Spoil Beyoncé’s Gender Reveal?
Rowland was doing interviews to promote her solo album Here I Am in 2011, when Beyoncé was pregnant with her first child with Jay-Z.
The couple had not announced the gender of their baby to the public, but Rowland apparently knew it was a girl.
In one interview with Us Weekly, Rowland was asked what gift she would buy for Beyoncé’s baby shower. She replied: “I don’t know… I think her dad is gonna give her everything anyways, all I can give her is love.”
In another interview with MissInfo.tv, Rowland added: “I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyoncé at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible. She won’t be spoiled but she will be very well looked after.”
Rowland did not realize that she had let the cat out of the bag until she saw the headlines later. She said on the podcast: “I was like, ‘What are they talking about? I didn’t say… Oh my God!’ It was bad because it was no one’s business.”
How Did Kelly Rowland Feel About Spoiling Beyoncé’s Gender Reveal?
Rowland said that she felt awful about spoiling Beyoncé’s gender reveal because it was not her news to share. She said: “I felt terrible because it’s not my news. It was honestly the worst. It wasn’t my news to share, and I didn’t mean it like that. The ‘she’ just kind of slipped out. I was like, ‘Uh oh.'”
Rowland also said that she apologized to Beyoncé and Jay-Z for her slip-up. She said: “I’m sure they were like, ‘What is wrong with you?’ But they were very gracious and sweet about it.”
