It seems that pregnancy is taking a toll on Kelly Clarkson. According to an OK! Magazine article posted on Friday, May 9, the singing superstar is so miserable from the unpleasant side effects of pregnancy and embarrassed by her weight gain that she won't go out to face the public and paparazzi.
According to an inside source, Kelly's still feeling as sick and exhausted now as she was in her first and second trimesters, when she was throwing up and nauseous all the time. It's even worse now that she has gained more weight than expected. So unlike other celebrities who parade their baby bumps on the red carpet and aren't afraid to face the world, Kelly is keeping herself indoors.
“Kelly knew she would gain weight, but the amount she’s packed on is far more. She won’t leave her house unless she absolutely has to, because she’s embarrassed," said the source, who added that she has her husband Brandon Blackstock run all of their errands and won't even go out to buy maternity clothes, buying them online instead.
The source also said that Kelly "is beside herself" and just can't wait for the pregnancy to be over. Indeed, while she has tweeted about her pregnancy, she has refrained from posting any photos of herself on her Twitter account. She was spotted out for the first time in four months over Easter weekend, enjoying a weekend of shopping, eating and boating with her family and friends.
Kelly has spoken out about her less-than-perfect pregnancy before, telling the "Today" show in November that she has morning sickness all day and night. The following month, she went on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and said that what people often say about pregnant women looking beautiful is "total crap." She was so ill she even had to cancel her overseas promo tour for her Christmas album. Then in January, she tweeted her jealousy of how Ciara was looking with her pregnancy.
Kelly Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock, whose stepmom is country legend Reba Mcentire, last October at Blackberry Farms in Tennessee. Just a month later, she announced her pregnancy and in January confirmed that she'll be having a girl.
