Kelly Clarkson: I'm Gonna Rock at Being a Mom


Kelly Clarkson has plenty of reasons why this will be the best Christmas ever: Not only did she marry her husband Brandon Blackstock in October, but she revealed Tuesday that she's pregnant!

In a new interview with Parademagazine, Kelly dished on surprisingly feeling zero pressure to lose baby weight, why she's going to make a great mom, and also revealed a few details about her "perfect" Tennessee wedding last month.

"Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can't wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!" she told the magazine about her plans to get pregnant, before she revealed the big news. "[But] I've never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain't nobody expectin' that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don't expect a lot."

She also has a strong feeling that she's going to have a baby girl.

"I'm totally gonna have a girl. I'm manifesting it!" she said. "And when I have a girl, you're gonna be like, 'That chick knew it!'"

Though no matter what the sex of the baby is, Kelly is sure she's going to be an awesome mom.

"I'm gonna rock at being a mom! I'm almost looking at it like making a record, like, 'I'm going to nail this!'" she said. "It's nice to have the financial stability to be there [for my child], whether I'm able to fly home after shows or take her with me."

About her low-key wedding to Blackstock last month, she revealed that it was every bit as romantic as her adorable wedding photos made it appear.

"I bawled like a baby. We both wrote our own vows, and it was hard to get through them, but I did it," she said. " ... Brandon was like, 'The Notebook ain't got nothin' on me -- come on!' And he took me out [on the lake] in a rowboat. It was very sweet. The whole thing was perfect."

And despite her epic break-up anthems, it turns out that she wasn't OK being single all these years.

"I was single for almost seven years. Every Christmas, it was like, 'Seriously, I'm still pathetically alone? Awesome,'" she admitted. "I'm still telling people I'm okay with it? I'm not.'"

But that's not to say she regrets her past boyfriends -- especially one "stinker" who ended up making her a whole lot richer.

"I only had like three boyfriends my whole life before Brandon, and two of them were good, just not a good fit. I only had one real stinker that I wrote [music about] and made a lot of money off of," she said.
