After confirming last week that she’s expecting her first child, Kelly Clarkson
has revealed that she and husband Brandon Blackstock had already picked out the baby’s name!
“We named our kid before we were even pregnant,” she said on the ‘Today Show' in New York.
Kelly explained that they have a male and female name lined up as it’s still too early to know the gender of the baby, but refuse to spill the names themselves.
“We’re not saying because I don’t want somebody to steal my baby name!” she explained.
After marrying her music manager husband last month, the ‘Mr. Know It All’ singer wanted to keep the pregnancy a secret until she was further along.
“I was just dying to tell people, but we were trying to wait until the end of my first trimester ‘cause you’re supposed to,” admitted the mum-to-be.
“But everybody kept talking about it and I had to cancel something because I've been so ill, so I didn’t want people to think I was cancelling 'cause I’m lazy or something. So we just told people!” she said.
Unfortunately Kelly has been experiencing severe morning sickness, explaining in the interview: “I don't know why they call it morning sickness because it's like all day and all night.”
Due to her constant nausea, the ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ singer said that she has a “gut feeling” that she’s having a baby girl.
“She’s killing me. Of course it’s a girl causing the trouble,” she explained.
Despite being sick all the time Kelly said: “I'm super excited about being pregnant. I'm just looking forward to the second trimester. They say it's better."
A huge congratulations to Kelly and Brandon!
