Pregnancy isn’t stopping Kelly Rowland from staying fit. At nine months pregnant, the 39-year-old songstress is still managing to squat, lunge, and look good while doing it.
“She’s still pregnant, so we are still working,” Rowland’s personal trainer, Rebecca Broxterman, captioned an Instagram Story of the pop star working out.
Rowland rocked a coral pink sports bra with her baby bump on full display. Even with the extra heft of another human in tow, she held strong through bodyweight exercises like wall sits and squats.
Rowland reposted the clip to her story yesterday, writing “What is this baby waiting for?” In another video, she bounced and shimmied on an exercise ball, leaned into lunges, and twerked on a Range Rover to show her followers she’s still got it.
“That shimmy and shake is how you ended up pregnant Mrs. Kelendria ?,” one user, octobers_reign, commented.
Others applauded the singer, saying “Get it mama!!!” and “Wow YOU LOOK AMAZING mommy.”
OB/GYNs recommend moderate-intensity exercise during pregnancy
It’s safe to continue or start exercising during pregnancy as long as you’re healthy and not at risk for complications, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
In fact, experts recommend that pregnant people get 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week. ACOG suggests aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking, rather than Rowland’s ambitious bodyweight workout routine, but also says it’s OK to keep up more rigorous exercise if that’s something you did before pregnancy.

Rowland told Women’s Health that she also does yoga, takes walks, and focuses on stretching to stay fit while pregnant.
The singer added that she was bedridden for most of her first trimester, but she’s been feeling better and has been able to get back to the gym. During her previous pregnancy, she said she was similarly active and also swam, jogged, and lifted weights.
