The original winner of American Idol got right into the gory details of her pregnancy as soon as she took a seat in one of the show’s signature red velvet chairs, telling DeGeneres she was vomiting all the time and had even vomited before coming out on stage. (She did have the courtesy to eat a peppermint afterward). Clarkson admitted she vomits a good dozen times a day, but she is happy to be pregnant. She also said she is 11 weeks along and would love to find the gender out right away; although the name she and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, have chosen works for either a boy or a girl.
DeGeneres and Clarkson also discussed Clarkson’s wedding, which took place back in October. Clarkson revealed that she bawled as she tried to read her vows to Blackstock and joked that it was such a bad cry, the videographer still hasn’t shown her the video. Blackstock actually flew the plane that took them to Blackberry Farms, Tennessee, where the couple tied the knot in a very small ceremony. (He has his pilot’s license, and Clarkson is currently working to obtain hers). Clarkson took the reins and flew them home, with an instructor present, of course.
Before Clarkson performed, DeGeneres presented her with her very own ugly Christmas sweater and a matching one for the baby to wear next year. Clarkson then sang her number one single, “Underneath the Tree,” off of her new Christmas album, “Wrapped in Red.” She also sang a joke song, entitled “Beautiful Bells” that lead up to Day 2 of Ellen’s 12 Days of Giveaways.
