Kelly Rowland who recently welcomed her first child, a son named Titan Jewell Witherspoon, with her hubby Tim Witherspoon has experienced an unexpected tragedy.

Rowland’s 66-year-old mother Doris Rowland Garrison passed away Tuesday in Atlanta. She was 66. It was reported that she went into cardiac arrest the day before her death.

Rowland’s publicist released a statement on behalf of the former Destiny’s Child member:

“It’s 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.”

This must be an exceptionally hard time for the new mother, whose baby’s arrival has been a source of joy that spread to the other ladies of the group.

Both Beyoncé and Michelle Williams have both gushed about the tiny tyke. Beyoncé recently posted a photo of Titan’s hand on Instagram with a heartfelt caption.

    Whew! Losing a mother is something else! My heartfelt condolences to Kelly. I know being a new wife/mother makes her mother’s death even more difficult.
