American Idol season one winner Kelly Clarkson has given birth to her daughter River Rose with husband Brandon Blackstock and has since revealed that she is looking to get pregnant with their second child by the end of the year. She wants to weave in some time after finishing her upcoming tour in order to try for their second baby together.
She revealed in a new interview, “I do America until October, and then Canada in October, so I think we’re coming here [to the U.K.] in November. Hopefully, because I plan on being pregnant very soon after that, so hopefully I get here!”
She also said that despite wanting a second baby, she admitted that it is hard being a woman and having to fit pregnancy in with her career. She said, “After the tour I want to start [trying] for the next one. It’s hard being a woman and wanting kids and fitting in your career. I want them to be close together, because the other two are kind of close together, my stepkids. So I want to tour, I’m looking forward to it. I haven’t done it since 2013 so I’m really looking forward to it because we’ve built an amazing show. But I am looking forward to the tail-end, going back into it!”
Despite her detractors, Clarkson also doesn’t pay too much attention to those who have criticized her over her appearance. She added, “My mom will tell you, I came out of the womb just saying, ‘Whatever!’ I don’t know, I’m a happy person, so as long as that’s rocking in my world then I’ll just do what I’m doing.”
Good for her!
