Kelly Clarkson talks about the reality of her divorce

(CNN) Kelly Clarkson says she’s done with the marriage but is open to finding love again and determined to support her kids as they adjust to her divorce.

The singer recently spoke about her split from Brandon Blackstock, the father of her two children, and the impact it has had on her family.

“I literally ask my kids every night when we cuddle, ‘Are you happy? And if you’re not, what could make you happier?'” Clarkson said on “The Angie Martinez IRL Podcast.” “Sometimes they say, especially over the past two years, and it hurts me and I want them to be honest, so I never say, ‘Oh God, don’t tell me that,’ but a lot of times it would be like, ‘You know, I’m just really sad. I wish mom and dad were in the same house.'”

She added, “I’m raising such a person. I want you to be honest with me.”

Clarkson said she grew up in a divorced family herself, which helped her understand the feelings involved.

“I just sit there and I’m like, ‘I get it. I’m also from a divorced family. I get it. That sucks,'” she said. “But we’re going to work it out. And you’re so loved by both of us. I think you should interact with them and not treat them, not treat them like an adult, because they’re not — but don’t treat them like an adult to deal with.” child. They are not small feelings. Those are huge feelings, and those are huge emotions.”

Clarkson and Blackstock split in June 2020, with the singer citing irreconcilable differences. She said that while she has no intention of getting married again, she does want to find love.

“I’m not getting married,” she said. “In my life I’ve been through a few divorces in my own family as a kid. I’d love to fall in love. I’d love to find someone and fall in love and do that thing, but I have kids and that’s why I’m saying that.”
