Kelly Rowland Covers Marie Claire UK, Talks Babies And Reuniting With Estranged Father

Marie Claire UK is ringing in the New Year with plenty of pizazz, courtesy of it's January 2012 cover girl Kelly Rowland. The "Here I Am" singer and "X Factor" UK judge shimmers in a mini silver sequin dress and jet black locks.

In the cover story, Rowland opens up about her upcoming reunion with her father after 22 years. "I do plan on seeing him over the holidays. I'm nervous as hell. I don't want to think about it. We'll see what happens, Rowland told Marie Claire.

And now that her best friend Beyonce, is also the most famous pregnant woman in the world, is Rowland ready to start her own little family? "No. I will babysit and change a diaper or two, and then give it back. I do want kids, but every time I think about a little person growing inside of me and getting bigger and bigger and then having to come out...a watermelon coming out of something the size of a lemon is insane to me," Rowland revealed to the magazine. Enough said.
