Kelly’s Mother Dies Weeks After The Birth Of Her First Son
The sad news of Kelly’s mother passing comes only weeks after the news of her baby being born. On Nov. 4, Kelly gave birth to her son, and his name is Titan Jewel Witherspoon!
“We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son,” Kelly said in a statement. “We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy,” she told People.
