Kelly Rowland has finally gone public with news about her engagement to manager and long-time love Tim Witherspoon, and the former Destiny’s Child beauty was spotted flaunting her relationship finger tattoo sans engagement ring during a recent trip to the pricey Bergdorf Goodman department store in New York City. Miss Rowland and her soon-to-be-hubby worked hard to keep their relationship very hush-hush for more than four years, but now that they have matching finger tats as placeholders for their wedding rings, they are showing off their love for one another every chance they get! Check out Kelly Rowland’s sweet relationship tattoo inked in black on the bottom part of her ring finger, for everyone to see.
Kelly Rowland and Tim Witherspoon publicly announced their engagement late last year, and the adorable couple admitted that they had managed to keep their relationship a secret for “many years.” It was back in April 2013 that Kelly first revealed the mysterious tattoo on her ring finger, but she insisted that it was simply a friendship tattoo with bestie Tim Witherspoon. During an interview with Power 105 radio station, Kelly explained the meaning behind the finger tat, saying, “I’m not married. I’m not engaged. That’s me and my best friend.” It wasn’t too long before Tim finally “put a ring on it” though, and Kelly Rowland’s ring finger is now, more often than not, adorned with a huge diamond engagement ring.
Relationship finger tattoos are becoming more and more popular, especially among celebrities who don’t want to wear too much bling, and even super-couple Beyonc and Jay Z share matching love tats, with the Roman numeral IV inked on each of their ring fingers in place of wedding rings. When Tim Witherspoon first popped the question to Kelly, the singer was more than happy to show off the monster engagement ring in a series of happy Instagram photos and videos. Now though, despite the fact that Kelly’s rock is a beautiful five- or six-carat diamond estimated to be worth between $100,000 and $150,000, the famously low-profile 33-year-old seems just as content showing some love for her fiance with her sweet finger tattoo instead.
