Kelly Rowland is pregnant and proud.

The former Destiny's Child star, who is currently expecting her first child with husband Tim Witherspoon, strips down to a smile for Elle.com -- putting her baby bump (and just about everything else) on display for a stunning photo shoot.

In the accompanying interview, Rowland says she doesn't understand why she or any other celebs who get naked while pregnant should feel shame.

"I don't know why they would get flack. It's really -- I won't say amazing -- it's Godmazing watching your body carry a human," she tells the website. "I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn't you want to celebrate that? The body should be celebrated."

With the exception of a taco binge, Rowland also says she hasn't gone crazy when it comes to cravings and has been very aware of what she puts into her body.

"Everybody always tells you to go crazy with food, and you can eat whatever you want. It's fine to have your cravings but I wanted an easier delivery. All the women that I've talked to, that have worked out, have such an easy and speedy delivery. Exercise really helps that," she says.

Kelly and Tim are expecting a baby boy, who should be here in just a few short weeks.

Congrats to the happy couple!
