Would it be worse for Beyoncé to be mad at you, or just disappointed? While Beyoncé’s wrath is likely no fun, for Kelly Rowland, feeling the weight of Beyoncé’s disappointment was just as bad. During a July episode of Billy Mann’s “Yeah, I F*cked That Up” podcast, Rowland revealed the biggest mistake she ever made during an interview was accidentally revealing the sex of her former Destiny’s Child bandmate‘s first child, Blue Ivy Carter.

Rowland didn’t name the outlet she spilled the beans to, but she did share how awful she felt afterwards. “That was the worst moment ever!” she said. “The worst moment ever. It was such a mistake.”

The “Dilemma” singer didn’t reveal the news on purpose. In fact, it wasn’t until the interviewer was talking to her afterwards that she realized she had let Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s news slip. At that point, it was too late to backtrack.

“I was like, ‘What are they talking about? I didn’t say . . . Oh my god!'” she said of the moment she realized her mistake. “It was bad because it was no one’s business.” Mann went on to ask if Beyoncé was angry when she found out. “I mean, disappointed. Yesss,” Rowland responded.

Thankfully, Beyoncé forgave her pal, and they still remain close to this day. Still, the memory of her slip up haunts Rowland even now that Blue Ivy is old enough to join her mom on stage during her Renaissance World Tour. She continued, “I felt terrible because it’s not my news. It was honestly the worst. It wasn’t my news to share, and I didn’t mean it like that. The ‘she’ just kind of slipped out. I was like, ‘Uh-oh.'”
