Kelly Clarkson has a lot to celebrate this holiday season: a hit Christmas single with "Underneath the Tree," a top-selling album in Wrapped in Red and, of course, her pregnancy. In keeping with her busy year, Kelly says that her Christmas plans are going to be chaotic and funny, rather than calm and bright.
Speaking to USA Today , Kelly says of her holiday plans with husband Brandon Blackstock, "We're inviting our family a few days before Christmas and doing like a Blackstock Family Christmas Vacation. We're having ugly Christmas sweater dinner and doing gag gifts."
There won't be any time spent putting together cribs and painting the nursery for Kelly and Brandon's new arrival over the holidays, Kelly says. "We can't start doing that, because we have the family coming in and we need that room. But we're going to start right in the new year," she explains to USA Today.
Ultimately, Kelly's greatest Christmas gift may be the fact that December 25 will mark the end of her first trimester, and hopefully, the end of her non-stop morning sickness, which is causing her to vomit constantly. "I'm going to be really mad [if] it doesn't [stop]," she laughs. "Last week, I was out with my band and crew. I had to go to the bathroom [to throw up] twice because I smelled chocolate. And I love chocolate!"
