Kelly Rowland pays tribute to her mother after she passes away
It has been confirmed that the mother of Kelly Rowland, Doris Garrison, died yesterday at age 66.
The songstress has now issued a statement on the sad news, which reads: "It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison. She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman - and now mother - I am today."
"We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time."
Rowland and her new husband Tim Witherspoon will celebrate their baby son Titan's one-month birthday tomorrow (December 3). Back in October, the hitmaker explained that she feels as though she can continue to enjoy her career and be a good mother at the same time:
"I watch Diana Ross and Donna Summer and all these women - they've managed to do it all. I think 'What makes me different? I can definitely do it.' And this is something I've wanted. I've been talking about babies since last year."
