Kelly Clarkson: “I Was Just Dying to Tell People” About My Pregnancy

Just like with her baby’s conception, Kelly Clarkson admits she can’t stop talking about her pregnancy.

“I was just dying to tell people, but we were trying to wait until the end of my first trimester … but everybody kept talking about it and I had to cancel something because I’ve been so ill,” the mother-to-be said on the TODAY of her recent baby announcement. “I didn’t want people to think that I’m canceling because I’m lazy or something. So, we just told people. But we had a really good reason.”

“I don’t know why they call it morning sickness because it’s like all day and all night,” the American Idol alum said. “I’m super excited about being pregnant. I’m just looking forward to the second trimester. They say it’s better.”

Clarkson, who wed beau Brandon Blackstock on Oct. 20, previously said she has been going at it “like rabbits” in order to get pregnant before Christmas.

“I want babies!” the singer gushed during a radio interview in last month. “Everybody keeps saying, ‘What do you want forChristmas?’ And I’m like, ‘I want to be pregnant.'”
