Kelly Clarkson and her family may live in Los Angeles full-time, but they’ve headed up north to their ranch in Montana to practice social distancing as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread in the U.S.
The Voice coach and Kelly Clarkson Show host, 37, recently took to YouTube (above) to show off the “efficiency cabin” where the family eats, sleeps and hangs out on the ranch. She gave a personal tour of the small, shared space, which is currently housing her and her husband, Brandon Blackstock; their kids, River Rose, 5, and Remington Alexander, 3; and her step-kids Seth, 13, and Savannah, 18 (though Clarkson says Savannah “usually isn’t with us”).
The American Idol alum starts the tour at the front door, which is decorated with a holiday wreath. “Hey, thanks Gwen Stefani for sending us this for Christmas,” Clarkson says, pointing at the red-berry covered decoration and referring to her former The Voice co-coach. “It’s still lasting out here in the wilderness.”
The Texas native then opens the wood door and reveals a rustic log home complete with beds, a kitchenette, large table, fireplace and more. “This is our cabin, and it’s super cute and cozy!” the singer says as she pans the camera around.
She then points out a set of adjustable bunk beds where the younger kids sleep, her and her husband’s bed in the middle of the room, and another cot for Seth, which can be turned into bunk beds when Savannah is there.
“It’s kind of cute, this is where we hang out!” she continues, panning to a kitchenette stocked with snacks and utensils. “And there’s Dolly, what’s up, Dolly?” she says, showing off a black-and-white photo of Dolly Parton, strumming an electric guitar, hanging in the kitchen area.
Finally, she shows off the wood stove in the corner, along with shelves of “games and puzzles, because my kids love puzzles,” she says.
Noticeably, there doesn’t appear to be a bathroom inside the cabin, so the famous family likely has to head outdoors to use the facilities.
Clarkson has shared several videos of herself singing in a bathroom elsewhere on the property — including a rendition of Mariah Carey’s “Vanishing” — for fans on Instagram, noting that she has to hide out in the bathroom when the kids are sleeping so her singing voice doesn’t wake them.
She’s also shared photos of her husband giving the kids horseback riding lessons on the ranch, using their family time together while social distancing to learn some new skills.
Recently, Clarkson issued a statement on Twitter and Instagram to announce that her upcoming Las Vegas residency has been postponed, also confirming that production on The Kelly Clarkson Show has been “temporarily shut down” due to the pandemic.
