Kelly Rowland has opened up about how she keeps her marriage of four years strong, saying communication and admitting you're not perfect is key.

The singer and The Voice Australia judge has been married to her manager Tim Weatherspoon since 2016. They share 5-year-old son Titan.

In a recent interview with Red, the former Destiny's Child star said the secret to a happy marriage is to 'remember you're not perfect', admitting she's 'no walk in the park all the time'.

'He would say my most annoying habit is when I clean up and toss things out that he wanted to keep,' Rowland explained. 'Or I buy furniture and say, "Doesn't this look great in here?" And he says: "Well I would've loved an opinion!"'

She admitted the pair are 'learning about communicating every day' – and shared a sweet conversation they had earlier on in their relationship which still resonates.

'I remember Tim saying, "Look, sister, we gon' ride this thing 'til the wheels come off." As long as both of us don't get tired – if one of us gets tired we're good,' Rowland recalled.

While she's away from LA filming The Voice Australia in Sydney that means 'a lot of FaceTime [with Tim and Titan], we write and send pictures and hide a lot of love notes'.

Rowland also spoke candidly about losing her mother, Doris, a few weeks before she herself became a mum.

'It was such an interesting time,' she said. 'I remember thinking "I have to get through this with peace," because I didn't want Titan to feel my sadness. I had my sisters there, Beyonce, Michelle, Solange and Angie, and my cousin Mickey, and they helped me get through it.

'If I needed to cry, my husband let me and was such a comfort. He'd lost his father suddenly, too, so he knew how to console me. I'm so grateful for my tribe and community.'

She says she's since had a conversation with her mum about motherhood 'spiritually', adding 'it was beautiful'.
