Kelly Rowland not ready for motherhood

Kelly Rowland is adamant she won't be following her best pal Beyonce into motherhood any time soon, insisting she's "not ready for babies".

The Dilemma hitmaker is overjoyed for her former Destiny's Child bandmate and her rapper husband Jay-Z, and can't wait to spoil the tot when Beyonce gives birth early next year (12).

Kelly Rowland, who is close to Beyonce's sister Solange and her son Julez, tells MTV News, "I'm so happy for her (Beyonce) and her husband and just excited to be an auntie - part two. First it was Julez. Now it's a new baby on the rise; it's gonna to be so exciting."

But the singer has ruled out having children of her own for the time being.

She says, "I'll help take care of my 'sister' and her husband's baby first. I'm not ready for babies yet. I can watch them take care of this little baby."

And Kelly Rowland has already offered up her babysitting services to the parents-to-be: "It's a wonderful moment. I just saw my sister today, and I got a chance to rub her tummy (and) I get to babysit, yes."
