It’s no secret that Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock want a baby, and when they finally learned they were expecting, the couple just couldn’t hold in the news! In fact, they even broke that unwritten rule of waiting until the end of the first trimester for the announcement.
“I was just dying to tell people,” the singer admitted on TODAY. “We were trying to wait until the end of my first trimester, but everybody kept talking about it and I’ve had to cancel something because I’ve been so ill. I didn’t want people to think I’m canceling because I’m lazy or something! So, we just told people.”
While Kelly is obviously excited that she’ll have a baby soon, she also revealed that pregnancy is harder than she expected. “I don’t know why they call it morning sickness because it’s, like, all day and night,” she said. “I’m super excited about being pregnant. I’m just looking forward to my second trimester. They say it’s better.”
She added that it’s still too soon for them to know the baby’s gender, although they have picked out both a boy’s and girl’s name. Don’t expect to find out what those are yet, though. “We’re not saying because I don’t want someone to steal my baby’s name,” she laughed.
