After announcing her pregnancy on Twitter, Kelly Clarkson confessed to the Today Show‘s Savannah Guthrie that she’s feeling the typical first trimester symptoms.
“I don’t know why they call it morning sickness,” she said. “That’s my big joke right now because it’s all day and all night. I’m super excited about being pregnant, though. I’m just looking forward to the second trimester … they say it’s better.”
If the singer was well enough to put on an adorable red dress and perform on The Today Show for her Christmas album, I guess her morning sickness isn’t reaching Kate Middleton-level proportions.
But even if it were, you can just read on Kelly’s face how thrilled she is to be going through every aspect of the experience.
Morning sickness is a funny thing. It’s about the only pregnancy symptom I didn’t have, and strangely, I remember wishing that I did.
When you’re in your first trimester and wishing/hoping that everything is okay, I used to think friends who had morning sickness were “lucky.” Surely the nausea was a clue that things were good and moving along as expected.
Bizarre, I know. And probably untrue.
Still, it seemed like an assurance — the same way those little flutterings that come later on kind of are.
Kelly also told Savannah why she thinks she’s having a girl.
“Because she’s killing me,” she explained. “And of course, it’s a girl, right, causing the troubles. So, it’s gotta be a girl.”
