Kelly Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock welcomed their first child, a little girl named River, last summer, but she’s not done just yet! While performing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Kelly announced that she and Brandon are expecting their second child together. That’s right – Kelly Clarkson is pregnant with baby #2! She made the announcement while performing the track “Piece By Piece”, during which she became pretty emotional.
After holding back tears while introducing the song, Clarkson found herself struggling to get a handle on her emotions.
Instead, the singer stopped and told the crowd: “I was not planning on announcing this, but … I’m totally pregnant. I’m having a really hard time,” she explained of her inability to get through the song, which is both a kiss-off to her father and a paean to her husband for being a good dad.
“I’m gonna nail the s— out of this song. That was not how I wanted to announce that … I hate this song right now,” she joked while wiping away tears. “My makeup artist is backstage hating me right now. I just don’t want you to think I’m on pills or drunk.”
After finally getting through the tune, Clarkson said, “I’d like to apologize to my husband. That was not planned. I just didn’t want you to think I was crazy or something. Honestly, I’m just so hormonal today. … I haven’t vomited yet. That is a freakin’ win, y’all.”
Aw, cute. Kelly has always seemed like such a genuinely nice human being, not to mention a mega-talented one. I’m happy for her – I’m sure it’ll be another adorable kid, too!
