Kelly Clarkson on pregnancy: "This will never happen to me again"

After your first baby people start asking when you're going for baby number 2. Your reply? Silence. We all know it's not as easy as everyone may think and a lot goes into making that decision. 

When it comes to motherhood, Kelly Clarkson has always been real (and honest) about how she feels. In an interview on Jenny McCarthy's SiriusXM Radio show last week, the singer looked back on her experience when she was pregnant with River and Remington.

She said: "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."

Clarkson also mentioned in the interview that both her and her husband got "fixed" right after the birth of their son Remington. She went on by saying that even before giving birth she insisted that her husband have a vasectomy.

Not only was she done having kids, but the singer jokingly said that if she ever managed to fall pregnant again it would be "a miracle of God". "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!' "
