Kelly Rowland, solo star, dancer and one-third of Destiny's Child, has always kept it super candid on social media – especially when it comes to documenting her pregnancy journey. She regularly posts fun videos of herself (and her ever-blossoming bump) and speaks honestly about all the changes that accompany growing a tiny human (such as struggling to fit into her favourite clothes).
Recently, Kelly even shared with her 10 million followers that her bump had changed colour (which - just FYI - is nothing to worry about) and now she's uploaded a clip of herself twerking and working out while nine months pregnant. Firstly, she looks unreal (as always) and secondly, we're kinda jealous that she has so much energy? Anyone else just turned into a complete lockdown potato over the last few weeks? No, just me?
In the TikTok video (that she also shared on Instagram), accompanied to the soundtrack of Hit It by Yung Skrrt, Kelly goes from bouncing on an exercise ball, to doing a little shimmy in the gym, followed by some leg raises and then rounds off her session by twerking in front of a Range Rover. She captioned the post "Hit it! Hit It! 9 months!!!" Go on, Kelly!
Her post has already been viewed over 2 million times and met with a tonne of praise from fans (including a LOL comment from Kelly's husband, Tim Witherspoon, who wrote "You buggin!!!!!!").
When it comes to exercising during pregnancy, the NHS say that keeping on top of your fitness levels throughout can be super beneficial (however, this of course may not be applicable to everyone who is expecting – for example if the pregnancy is high-risk). If you have any concerns or questions related to exercising while pregnant, always seek the appropriate medical advice beforehand.
In general, the NHS recommend that you should always be able to hold a conversation while working out during pregnancy (meaning no HIIT classes). "Keep up your normal daily physical activity or exercise (sport, running, dancing, or even walking to the shops and back) for as long as you feel comfortable," it advises.
Pilates is another form of fitness that could be a fun option for those with a bump to explore, as is yoga (but it's important to note that there are some moves that aren't recommended during pregnancy – again, this is one to ask a qualified expert about).
And again, three cheers to Kelly for being an absolute queen! 👏👏👏
