Kelly Rowland has revealed she couldn't stop staring at Beyonce Knowles' "beautiful" baby the first time she met her.

The singer and Michelle Williams went to visit their former Destiny's Child bandmate and her newborn daughter Blue Ivy last week and Kelly can't stop gushing over her friend's tot.

When asked about the baby, the 'Down for Whatever' hitmaker said: "She's absolutely beautiful! And I say that with such a huge grin! I'm so excited for her (Beyonce) ... I just stared at her."

Kelly admits Michelle was equally as transfixed with the two-week-old tot - Beyonce's first child with her husband Jay-Z - when they paid a visit

Speaking at the Hpnotiq Harmonie and Live Louder 2012 Kickoff cocktail party at the W hotel in Hollywood last night (24.01.12), she revealed: "We all just stared at her (Blue Ivy). She is so beautiful."

Kelly, 30, is remaining tight-lipped on what gift she bought for Blue Ivy, but she insists it was a very fashionable present.

When quizzed on what present she gave the baby, she laughed: "That's between me and Blue. But you best believe her auntie will have her dressed to impress."
