Kelly Clarkson has morning sickness ‘a good dozen times a day’

Kelly Clarkson is experiencing a rather, unglamorous pregnancy side effect, much like the one Kate Middleton once suffered when she was carrying Prince George.

"I vomit a good dozen times a day,” the pregnant star admitted to Ellen Degeneres on her talk show. “It's, like, bad. I vomited before coming out here and I had a peppermint so you didn't [know].”

The singer, who married Brandon Blackstock in an impromptu ceremony in October, made no secret about her desire to start a family right away once she was wed. But Kelly says she was not expecting her first trimester to be so challenging, and besides her acute morning sickness, the 31-year-old is struggling with all of the physical changes that pregnancy brings.

“You're not attractive when you're pregnant,” she said.” Everybody tells you [that] you glow and you're hair is pretty and you're nails are pretty. That's total crap. My nails are short, my hair still falls out, like it's not all lush and beautiful and I have no glow.”

Despite her acute morning sickness, Kelly maintains she is more thrilled than ever to be expecting.

“But I am super excited about being pregnant,” she added. “I’m just looking forward to the second trimester.”

Kelly also revealed that though she doesn’t know the sex of the child just yet, she and Brandon have already chosen a baby name.

"It doesn't even matter, because honestly, the name we picked, if it's a boy or a girl, it's the same name,” she said.

“You won't guess it. It's a random name. It's not like some weird famous person that's gonna be like, Blue Jazz."
