For the first time since the tragic death of her mother earlier this week, Kelly Rowland made her first stirring on social media.

Early this morning, Rowland posted a touching, sunwashed photo of she and newborn son Titan.

"'My only sunshine......you make me happy, when skies are grey' #TITAN #LIFE," she wrote.

The photo comes two days after Rowland gave a statement to ESSENCE on the passing of her mother, Doris Rowland Garrison.

"It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison," she said. "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."

Garrison suffered a fatal heart attack on Monday. She passed away on Tuesday at the age of 68.

Our prayers continue to go out to the Rowland family.
