Kelly Clarkson recently sat down for an interview with Jenny McCarthy on her Sirius XM show. Here's what she had to say, as reprinted by E! News:
"I was literally pregnant with Remi, and I was like, 'You are getting fixed. This will never happen to me again.' If something happens, it's a miracle of God. I literally told my OBGYN on the table while open, 'If I get pregnant again, I will find you!'"
"It's horrible. Nothing is beautiful, nothing is magical. Whatever, you're that person that gets that pregnancy, good for you. But I will remind my children every day of their lives what I [went through]. I was like hospitalized both pregnancies. And then I thought, I wanted another little buddy [for River]. I didn't want a kid to just be an odd man out because I felt like that a lot. I wanted her to have somebody her age, like when we're traveling. And so I thought, 'OK, we'll just do it again.' I was like, 'There's no way it can happen again,' but it was worse. Remi's pregnancy was worse than River's."
On whether or not she wants her daughter River to pursue a career in entertainment:
"I don't want her to do this. If she wants to do this, then great. But I'm going to push for a teacher or doctor or anything else...Because I just think she's going to grow up too privileged to not grow a thick enough skin, in all honesty. I had a pretty thick skin with my upbringing. I just don't think she'll handle it well because people are mean."
