We’ve loved seeing proud mom-to-be Kelly Rowland’s growing baby bump on Instagram (and her fierce pregnant workouts!) and now she’s taken it a step further by posing for a beautiful nude maternity shoot for Elle.com.

The singer and actress bared her body and bump confidently, and with good reason.

“It’s really — I won’t say amazing — it’s Godmazing watching your body carry a human,” Kelly says. “Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that? I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband [Tim Witherspoon] is probably the most beautiful part.”

Kelly, who’s expecting a baby boy in just a few weeks, has been focused on staying fit during her pregnancy by listening to her body.

“Everybody always tells you to go crazy with food, and you can eat whatever you want,” Kelly says. “It’s fine to have your cravings but I wanted an easier delivery. All the women that I’ve talked to, that have worked out, have such an easy and speedy delivery. Exercise really helps that.”

And as for her red carpet glow (you know, when she looked like a goddess at the VMAs?)? A little butter did the trick.

“I’ve switched out anything with harsh chemicals,” she says. “I use nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter and coconut oil. It’s amazing how all of those things work so well for my skin. I’m going to continue to just use those after the baby gets here.”
