Beyonce's Child Birth Has Kelly Rowland Determined To Watch (PHOTOS)

As the world continues to anticipate the birth of Beyonce and Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter's first child early next year, close friend Kelly Rowland is already making plans to attend the couple's milestone moment.

After missing her best friend give birth in 2009 due to touring in Britain, the "Motivation" songstress and former Destiny's Child member assures that she will not miss the birth of the Pop star's child.

"My best friend had a baby and I wasn't there to see the baby born," she recently revealed to the Daily Mail. "That kind of stuff. I get choked up even now talking about it because I wasn't there. So now it's important to me to share those moments with my friends and with my family. I wouldn't miss the birth of Beyonce's baby. I can't. I don't want to miss those moments."

"It's life happening to people that I love and I want to be a part of it. I watched my best friend's baby being born on Skype," she added.

Earlier this month Rowland accidentally revealed the gender of the couple's child at the Cosmopolitan Awards in London while answering the question of what she might purchase for the baby shower.
