R.I.P., Doris Rowland Garrison.

Kelly Rowland's mother passed away yesterday, Dec. 2, at the age of 66, E! News reports. She died in Atlanta, Ga., just a day after going into cardiac arrest.

"It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison," Kelly said in a statement (via her rep). "She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman -- and now mother -- I am today. We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time."

Tragically, Kelly's mom's death comes just weeks after the Destiny's Child singer gave birth to her first child, Titan Jewell Witherspoon, on Nov. 4. Less than a week ago, Kelly posted an Instagram photo of her baby's feet, with the caption "The most happiest moment of my life."

We're glad that her mother at least had the opportunity to welcome her grandson into the world.

Our thoughts are with Kelly Rowland and her family during this unimaginably hard time.
