Congrats are in order for Kelly Clarkson today, after she revealed last night that she is pregnant with her second child.
The singer announced the happy news live on stage at the Los Angeles Staples Centre, much to the surprise of the audience… and to herself.
"I was totally not planning on announcing this, but I’m pregnant. I’m having a really hard time," she said, while struggling to hold in her emotion.
"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. My makeup artist is backstage hating me right now. I just don’t want you to think I’m on pills or drunk or something."
33-year-old Kelly has spoken before about her difficult first pregnancy with her daughter River Rose, which saw her "vomiting over the porcelain throne for seven months". Now that River is 13 months old, it seems Kelly is ready for another child, despite her apprehensions about going through pregnancy again.
"I had the worst pregnancy ever but I love her so much I want another one in, like, two years," she said earlier this year.
While the audience loved Kelly's annoucnement last night, her husband of two years Brandon Brandstock might not have been quite so pleased with the very public revelation.
"I’d like to apologise to my husband," Kelly said from the stage. "We haven’t even told our [extended] family! That was not planned. I just didn’t want you to think I was crazy or anything. I’m just so hormonal today. I haven’t vomited yet – that is a freakin’ win."
Huge congrats to Kelly and Brandon.
