Kelly Clarkson Talks Pregnancy Morning Sickness on Ellen: "I Vomit a Good Dozen Times a Day"
Pregnancy has been rough on Kelly Clarkson. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, Dec. 6, the 31-year-old singer vented to host Ellen DeGeneres about how "miserable" she's been feeling during the first trimester of her pregnancy. Clarkson, who is expecting her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock, shared some TMI details about her horrible morning sickness.
"I vomit a good dozen times a day its like bad. I vomited before coming out here," Clarkson shared. "I'm not even kidding, it's so bad. It's so bad. It's, like, so gross. And that's the thing too, you're not attractive when you're pregnant. Everybody tells you [that] you glow and your hair is pretty and your nails are pretty. That is total crap. My nails are short, my hair still falls out -- it's not all lush and beautiful -- and I have no glow. Unless it's, like, something left over from a bad throw up. It's horrible."
Clarkson (currently promoting her holiday album Wrapped in Red) also said she's sick of other women who've been pregnant telling her they didn't have bad morning sickness. "I want to, like, hit all of them with my car," she joked.
The "Tie It Up" singer is eleven weeks along and she thrown up every single day -- except for one.
"I had one day -- it was either before Thanksgiving or the day after Thanksgiving, I can't remember -- I didn't throw up one time that day. I literally cried to my sister and mom I was like, 'It's over.' They said it would be abrupt and it would just end. Then the next day, nope, it just picked on right back up."
"It's miserable," Clarkson added of being sick. "But I'm so happy I'm pregnant. I just wish he or she would stop trying to kill me." The first-time mom-to-be doesn't know the gender of her baby yet, but said it doesn't matter "because the name we picked is if it's a boy or a girl it's the same name."
Clarkson announced she was pregnant one month after marrying talent manager Blackstock on Oct. 20 at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tenn. The American Idol alum told DeGeneres that she got very emotional while saying her vows at the ceremony.
"I was, like, I'm not going to cry. I'm so good," Clarkson explained. "And I balled so hard. Not pretty Rachel McAdams cry, like really bad 'aww that poor girl.' It was so bad that my videographer hasn't even shown it to me."
The couple decided to write their own vows, and Clarkson said it was the "worst damn decision" because it took her "an hour" to get through from all the crying. She admitted, "I'm just a sobbing hot mess."
