We can always count on Kelly Clarkson to tell it like it is.
When asked about parenting her two children, River Rose and Remington Alexander, as well as her husband Brandon Blackstock’s two children from a previous marriage, the 35 -year-old singer maintained it really real!
She said during The Voice‘s panel at TCA on Tuesday 😛 TAGEND
“They are challenging … Wine is necessary.”
Wine is always necessary, right ?! LOLz!
To be clear, the American Idol alum confirmed she and Brandon and “done having children! “
In a more sentimental moment, the Stronger artist added:
“They’re great, though. They say something and you’re like, ‘Damn.’ They’ll call you out. And they teach me. I know it sounds really silly, but children teach you to be a better human because they’re watching every moment. Not only me at home, but me sitting here with y’all.”
Adding 😛 TAGEND
“I think when you’re younger and, especially in this kind of industry where everybody’s always applauding you or even if they’re talking bad or good, they’re still talking about you. It’s so hard to not drink your punch, and I believe a lot of people fall prey to that … I think that[ my children] taught me to only look around me and notice the things that are really important, even if it’s just hanging with them, playing on their little piano or taking the time. Because I think in life, as adults, it’s very hard for us to be still. It’s very hard for us to enjoy the moment.”
As for what she wants to teach her children, Kelly explained 😛 TAGEND
“I hope with our two girls and our two sons, they find their parents as successful, loving and respectful people because that’s what we want for them.”
That’s all you can hope for!
