*Kelly Rowland is mourning the death of her mom.
The singer said in a statement that Doris Rowland Garrison died Tuesday in Atlanta after suffering cardiac arrest on Monday – days before her birthday on Saturday. She was 66.
The former Destiny’s Child member, who recently became a mother herself, stated: “It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison. She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman—and now mother—I am today,” Rowland said Wednesday. “We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Garrison has one other child, Rowland’s older brother Orlando.
Rowland and her husband Tim Weatherspoon welcomed a baby boy, Titan Jewell, last month.
