First Lady Dr. Jill Biden talked to Kelly Clarkson and gave her advice amid her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. She urged the singer to keep her heart open for love after the split.
First Lady Jill Biden is opening up and sharing some heartfelt advice about divorce with singer Kelly Clarkson amid her split with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. The 69-year-old recently appeared on "The Kelly Clarkson Show."
A clip from the upcoming interview showed the professor having an intimate conversation with Clarkson. Jill noted that she was speaking to the show host like she was having a conversation with her daughter.
The first lady recalled a thoughtful quote her mother used to tell her about how things would get better if she took life one day at a time. Sharing her personal story of how her divorce paved the way for greater things, Jill said:
"If I hadn't gotten divorced, I never would've met Joe. I wouldn't have the beautiful family I have now, so I really think things happen for the best."
The mother-of-one believes that a similar miracle would happen to Clarkson. She assured the "Stronger" crooner that over time healing would happen, and she would be surprised at what good things come her way.
Before meeting the President of the United States, Joe Biden, Jill was married.
Jill promised that Clarkson would call her up in the future and remember the conversation they had. In June, the "American Idol" alum filed for divorce from Blackstock after almost seven years of marriage.
The former couple share two children, River Rose, 5, and Remington, 4. During the marriage, Clarkson was a doting stepmother to Blackstock's two kids from his previous marriage.
It comes as no surprise that Biden has a word of encouragement for Clarkson as she has walked in the same shoe in the past. Before meeting the President of the United States, Joe Biden, Jill was married.

Joe and Jill crossed paths in 1975 after losing his first wife Neilia and their daughter Naomi in a car accident. The duotied the knot in 1977
after two years of dating and have been each other's rock ever since.
