Destiny’s Child singer mourns sudden loss of family member

The mother of singer Kelly Rowland sadly passed away yesterday, it has been confirmed.

The 66-year old died after going into cardiac arrest the day before.

"It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison," said Kelly in a statement released by her publicist today.

 "She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman—and now mother—I am today. We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time."

The tragic news comes just weeks after the singer gave birth to her son Titan Jewell with her husband Tim Weatherspoon.

Just last week Kelly shared this adorable snap on Instagram, captioning it "Happiest moment of my life – TJW."

Our thoughts are with Kelly and her family at this difficult time.
