“I so want another child, and my husband is like, ‘No! We have four!’” the Kelly Clarkson Show host, 38, told Gordon Ramsay in a May episode when his 14-month-old son, Oscar, crashed the interview. “You get baby fever when you see them and you’re like, ‘Oh, I miss the chubby little legs and the little face.’”
The Voice judge and Blackstock share two children — daughter River, 5, and son Remington, 4, — and the Tennessee native previously welcomed two kids in his previous marriage to Melissa Ashworth — Savannah and Seth.
In 2016, the American Idol season 1 winner told Redbook that she suffered from “a lot of mom guilt” at the time. “If you’re a mom, you want to be with your kid every day. You don’t want to miss a moment, you want her to need you and want you and not want somebody else. But I think it’s really important not only for my little girl and our 15-year-old girl and our boys to see that a woman is capable of kicking ass while also being a kickass mom,” she said. I’m not gonna BS you, that’s hard.”
Clarkson added, “There are days where I cry and I’m like, ‘I don’t know if I can handle all this!’ or get it all done. But at the end of the day, 99 percent of the time, it’s awesome and it’s worth it, and that’s what I say to myself.”
The Texas native felt better knowing she was being a “confident female” example for her daughter and that her success was a “turn on” for Blackstock. She quipped, “I’m a pretty badass female; boys that I dated before, they got intimidated by it, [and] that’s not fair to me because I work very hard.”
