Kelly Clarkson Gets Vulnerable About Being Hospitalized During 'Hard' Pregnancies: 'It's the Worst Thing'

The singer got emotional as she was joined by guest Hillary Clinton on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show' Monday, April 15

Kelly Clarkson is opening up about her difficult pregnancy experiences.

On Monday, April 15, the talk-show host got emotional as she spoke about being hospitalized while pregnant during a discussion with guest Hillary Clinton about the Arizona Supreme Court’s reinstated near-total abortion ban.

“I have been pregnant twice, hospitalized both times,” Clarkson, 41, said on The Kelly Clarkson Show. ”I mean, literally, I asked God, this is a real thing, 'to just take me and my son,' in the hospital the second time because I was like, it's the worst thing … I didn’t know I’d get emotional, sorry …”

Clarkson then paused for a few seconds as she composed herself, while Clinton, 76, said to her, “It’s OK, because you're speaking for so many. You’re speaking for literally millions of women in our country and around the world.”

The Grammy Award winner continued, “And it, um, it was just the worst … To make someone go through that — whew.”

Clarkson — who is mom to daughter River, 9, and son Remy, 8 — then said of having children that “it was my decision,” adding, “And I'm so glad I did. I love my babies. But to make someone … ”

Agreeing in her reaction to Arizona’s abortion ban, Clinton said, “There’s a cruelty toward women, towards women's lives.”

“And you don't realize how hard it is. The fact that you would take that away from someone,” Clarkson continued. “That it can literally kill them. The fact if they're raped … by their family member … and they have to — like that, it's just like insane to me."

On April 9, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled in a 4-2 decision to enforce a near-total abortion ban law, previously introduced in 1864, in one of the strictest bans in the country, per NBC News. It does include an exception for saving a woman's life.

The mom of two previously opened up about her difficult second pregnancy in a 2015 interview with CBS This Morning. She said at the time she was having “really bad” all-day sickness, just like she did in her first pregnancy, and had “to get IVs and fluids because I get so dehydrated.”

In 2016, Clarkson said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show she was done having children and, a year later, the singer confirmed she’d had surgery to prevent getting pregnant again, along with her now-ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

Clarkson told Cubby and Carolina in the Morning, “I always feel bad because I have friends who have a hard time getting pregnant and I'm just like 'Guys, I have the worst pregnancies ever, it can't happen again!' "
