Kelly Clarkson Reportedly Calls Motherhood the Greatest Gift Amid Split from Brandon Blackstock
Former American Idol star, Kelly Clarkson, shared some views and tips on motherhood at Carter's "ShowHER Love" virtual baby shower; this is only barely two weeks after her split with husband, Brandon Blackstock.
American singer-songwriter, Kelly Clarkson, is pretty happy to be a mom, and recently she expressed her joy at her experience of motherhood so far. She said,
"There is no greater gift than being a mama, and that comes with countless roles."
The 38-year-old mother-of-two, along with fellow celebrity moms Shawn Johnson and Jordin Sparks, shared her insight with a hundred new moms during Carter's "ShowHER Love" virtual baby shower on Thursday, June 18. Clarkson explained that there are numerous roles played by mothers:
"Friend, teacher — thank you, COVID — support system, shoulder to cry on, chef and more."
The "Because of You" singer admitted that mother's daily duties could be overwhelming at times, before assuring the moms that there is nothing better than watching one's children grow.
The actress then added: "I know it can be overwhelming, but it is so amazing. You aren't just molding their little lives, it's changing you in the process too."

Kelly, who is currently recording music for her upcoming album, reassured the moms that they were doing a good job. "Whether you are a working mom or a stay at home mom, let yourself off the hook," she said.
Kelly Clarkson and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, 43, who she married in 2013 recently got divorced. The couple parted ways due to "irreconcilable differences" early this month.
The singer and music manager had reportedly been having difficulties in their relationship, and the situation escalated during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Kelly and Brandon have two children together, River Rose, 5, and 4-year-old Remington Alexander. Clarkson confessed to having a tough time during the quarantine.
She has had to attend non-stop to the needs of her children and stepkids Savannah, 17, and 13-year-old Seth, while working on her album.
At the time, the mother-of-two revealed that she was on an emotional roller coaster during the lockdown. Clarkson admits to being a very involved and protective mother, as she strives to make sure her children's childhood is dissimilar to hers (her parents split up when she was six years old.)
