Kelly Rowland has her hands full — and she’s loving it.
The Destiny’s Child singer, 34, is currently guest starring on the smash hit TV show Empire and recently released her surprise single “Dumb,” but her favorite role is mom to her son Titan Jewell, who turns 1 on Thursday.
“I’m having a lot of fun with Titan,” Rowland says of her son’s first year, which she plans to celebrate at a “simple” party complete with “family, close friends, cake, ice cream, [and] tacos.”
The duo got an early start on the festivities last Thursday, taking adorable snaps while Rowland celebrated her first year of parenthood with Dreft in Los Angeles.
The singer says she’s been “using Dreft since before Titan was born,” adding, “My nesting started as soon as I found out I was pregnant. I was just so excited for him to come home.”
In the year since, Titan has been hitting all his major milestones — accomplishments Rowland and husband Tim Weatherspoon have cherished.
“He started walking three weeks ago,” shares Rowland. “We were all in the living room and he was going from one part of the couch to another to the point … so finally his dad put his arms out when he was walking away from the couch, and [Titan] just went for his walk. It was awesome.”
Rowland has been teaching her baby boy about the joys of reading — the mother-son duo enjoy “so many books together,” she tells PEOPLE — as well as her affinity for music.
“Oh my God, he loves the Bob Marley book!” she explains. “But he likes the part where I sing to him after. It’s really cool.”
Sure, fans were introduced to her singing “Say My Name,” but nowadays Rowland is busy busting out lullabies. The vocalist says Titan “loves when we’re playing music all through the house,” adding, “I’ll be glad when he gets his little two-step move down. That’s going to make me super excited.”

Rowland already knows she wants to expand her brood — but not by much! “One more. Just one more,” she says of having more children.
But don’t expect Titan to have a sibling anytime in the immediate future: “Not soon,” Rowland clarifies.
“I like the one-on-one time that we’re having right now,” she says. “His little stages that he’s going through with growing up have been pretty awesome, so I want it to be me, him and his dad for now. I like it.”
