Former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland is now a married woman. According to US Weekly on Monday, Rowland exchanged nuptials with her manager and boyfriend Tim Witherspoon in a small, simple wedding in Costa Rica on May 9. Rowland enjoyed her big day with two of her close friends, Beyonce and sister Solange.
This is the first marriage for the 33-year-old Rowland, who kept her big day pretty low key and simple. A source told Us Weekly “it was a quick, simple ceremony – only around 30 people.” The relationship overall has been kept pretty quiet. After her split up with football player Roy Williams in January 2005, the “Kisses Down Low” singer has kept her love life under wraps until she confirmed their engagement back in 2013 during an appearance on “The Queen Latifah Show.”
In the interview with Queen Latifah, a very excited Rowland expressed just how happy she was as she revealed “he put a ring on it,” and said, “It’s been a while. We’ve kept it very, very low – for years, to be completely honest.” After she announced the good news she also revealed the details of the proposal. She said Witherspoon proposed on Skype in an intimate moment while they were just starring at each other.
On the same day of the wedding, Beyonce shared a photo on Instagram wearing what appeared to be a bridesmaids dress and a simple caption that read, “Good morning.” The event took place just days after the Solange and Jay Z incident that happened after the Met Gala. In the meantime Rowland is back in the studio working on another album. The happy bride is working on collaborations with big names like Pharrell Williams. She talked about her fifth album with Billboard.
“I’m at the very very beginning stages of the record. We’re at the point now where we are all talking – writers [and] producers – we’re all excited. There are fresh ideas coming into the studio right now. We’re trying different beats. It’s a really great start.”
Rowland is also set to appear on the Pepi “Beats of the Beautiful Game” project to celebrate soccer. The visual album, which will be released on June 10 will also feature Timbaland, Rita Ora, and Janelle Monae. It has been a busy time for Kelly Rowland, but also a very memorable time in her life. Congratulations to Rowland and her new husband Tim Witherspoon.
