Kelly Clarkson received the greatest gift she could ask for on Mother’s Day. The singer and talk show host opened up to More about the priceless gift her nanny gave her did not even fits in a box.
“I’m a single mom, right? So I was working or with the kids,” Clarkson recalls. “So my nanny — I actually almost cried — was like, she walked into the kitchen and said, ‘Hey, for Mother’s Day, I’m going to give you the gift of time and you can do it. whatever you want.’ I almost broke down. I was like, “What?!”
Clarkson went on to say that she had “the best day ever” and that having that time to herself was incredible. “I love her,” she said of her nanny.
Clarkson has two children – River, 7, and Remington, 6 – with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. The two finalized the divorce proceedings in March 2022, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She has been candid about how difficult a breakup is, especially in the public eye.
“It was horrible. There were a lot of hard parts. The hardest part for me was the kids. It was the hardest thing for me,” Clarkson said in an episode of Performances by Kelly Clarkson in 2020. “I think as women, we’re trained… to take it all in and you can deal with it and you’re fine, but you’re worried about your baby.”
Clarkson’s children are the reason she delicately balances being open with fans about the divorce and maintaining some form of privacy.
“There’s a lot of heart involved here,” she said ET. “And you know, it’s kind of hard to navigate because I’m an open book, but at some point I’m more of a mother bear than I am a person in the public eye. So I care a hundred percent more about my children than I do anything else on this planet. So that’s the hard thing, like, yeah, I’m willing to share my experience and yes, it’s the worst. I mean, the past few months have been very sad. But at the same time, I had to think, ‘Hmm, like what I say there’s a domino effect in other people’s lives.’ “
We’re so glad Clarkson got some time to herself on Mother’s Day. Some of the best gifts are actually the simplest!
