The year 2014 was the most joyful and painful one for Kelly. She married the love of her life, Tim Witherspoon, on May 9, 2014 in Costa Rica. She gave birth to their son (her first and only child), Titan Jewell Witherspoon, on November 4, 2014. Then sadly, just three weeks after Titan’s birth, her Mother died suddenly from a heart attack at age 66. It was the greatest pain Kelly had ever felt in her life.

The exact date of Doris Rowland’s passing is unclear, but on December 2, 2014, Kelly released this statement at the time of her Mother’s untimely death:

“It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison. 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.” -via Essence

Now, almost two and a half years later, Kelly is painfully opening up about the woman she loved more than any other woman on the face of this earth and the thing she most regretted doing to her just before she passed away. Below are a few things she discussed in her interview with 60 Minutes:

“It just came out of nowhere,” Kelly revealed about her mother’s death, stating that she was ready to “fight with her” Mom through it, but it was too late.

When asked what the last thing her Mother said to her was, that’s when Kelly became even more emotional and admitted that was one of her “greatest regrets.”

“Oh, that was really tough,” said Kelly. “That was … That’s a really tough question. It’s one of my greatest regrets. I actually…I have to carry that to my grave.”

She further revealed that she just was not ready to discuss what she did to her mother that she’ll forever regret. The host, Peter Stefanovic, respected her wishes and moved on.

Kelly then went on to explain how she was by her Mother’s side at the time of her death and how her Mom’s passing engulfs her thoughts every single day of her life, understandably so.

Here’s what else was reported about Kelly’s emotional breakdown:

Via Rowland said the loss of her mother was hard to face because she had just given birth to her son, and then she watched her mother die. “I just watched my son come into this world, and I watched her go,” she recalled. “Like, literally watched her go. I remember when they pulled the plug,” she said as she choked back tears. She then went on to say that “life is such a beautiful, cruel thing”. “There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about her,” she said.
