HipHollywood can officially confirm that Kelly Rowland is having a boy.

Earlier this month, Rowland announced on Instagram that she was expecting her first child with husband, Tim Witherspoon. Although the singer never confirmed the sex of the baby, a photo of baby Jordans situated next to a larger pair led some to believe might be having a boy. Now, thanks to friend and sister Michelle Williams, we now know for sure.

“I’m so happy that I have another nephew coming to babysit for a few hours and give back to it’s rightful owners,” Williams told HipHollywood while on the red carpet for Debra Lee’s “PRE” BET Awards dinner. “She just looks so wonderful, I’m so happy for her.”

HipHollywood also caught up with former Destiny’s Child member LeToya Luckett who shared her reaction to Kelly’s pregnancy. “To see everybody grow up — Folks is married, with children — it’s amazing,” she said. “We started at 9-years-old, so to see her now with her belly and everything, it’s crazy to me.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
