Kelly Rowland makes first appearance since secret wedding
13 MAY 2014
Kelly Rowland has tied the knot.
The 33-year-old singer
secretly married her long-term boyfriend Tim Witherspoon in Costa Rica on 9 May in a low-key ceremony — and made her first appearance as a married woman on Monday.
Kelly glowed in a colourful ensemble as she graced the American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala in New York just a few days later and it's no wonder she was smiling so much.
