After finishing a performance Piece By Piece – a touching mid-tempo track which deals with her upbringing and current family life with Blackstock – an emotional Clarkson told the crowd: “I was not planning on announcing this, but I’m pregnant – totally pregnant.”

Kelly and Brandon welcomed their first child – a daughter named River Rose – in June 2014.

The Since U Been Gone singer recently threw us all a curve-ball by covering Rihanna’s Bitch Better Have My Money in the Live Lounge – though she gave it a typically Texan, PG-13 twist. Click here to give it a listen.
