Kelly Rowland: I take motherhood 'one day at a time'

Kelly Rowland takes motherhood "one day at a time".

The 'Motivation' hitmaker - who has 17-month-old son Titan Jewell with her husband Tim Witherspoon - has urged expectant mothers to not overthink and worry about doing a "perfect job" of raising their children.

When asked what advice she'd give new parents, she said: "One day at a time. I think that immediately, when I became pregnant, the first thing you think [about] is just doing a perfect job.

"You can't think about it like that because love is the perfect job. It's protecting them and making sure that they're happy and that they're going to be safe."

And the 35-year-old singer admits she was "really scared" about becoming a mother but says she felt much more at ease after she gave birth.

She added to PEOPLE magazine: "When I found out that I was going to be a mother, I was the mother who didn't know that I had patience. I was really scared about being a mother, just simply because I didn't think I had enough. When my son was born, I was like, 'Oh my God, I don't know where this patience came from!' I was really happy, and that made me feel better about being a mom.

"When I go to the pediatrician and he shows me this whole list of how to keep my kid safe, I'm like, 'Wait a minute, I'm just learning how to breastfeed! I'm just learning how to do this, and I'm just learning how to do that. There's more instructions?!'"
