When it comes to television singing competitions, the hit series American Idol will always be considered the biggest and most successful of them all, with the beautiful and talented Kelly Clarkson being the first ever winner of the show, before going on to enjoy a long and successful career in the music industry, as well as going on to enjoy plenty of happiness in her personal life.
Since winning American Idol all those years ago, as well as selling hundreds of millions of records all over the world, Kelly Clarkson also met Brandon Blackstock, who she married and now has two children with. Kelly has been talking about her family life and how having children has changed her, admitting that she feels that she has become much more confident since she had her babies.
Clarkson explained, "I've always been a confident person, I think that's just being Texan. But I think being a mom has brought another level of confidence, because basically the things a mom does daily -- without adding a job -- is pretty insane. We're gladiators, basically."
As well talking about how much more confident she has become, Kelly Clarkson also spoke about how this new boost in her confidence has had a big influence on her new album. She added, "It's got a lot of sass -- like I might beat you up with my sound. My backup singers who've worked with me for years said 'It's the first time you've done a record that's, like, full-on your personality.'"
We cannot wait to hear the new record, Kelly.
