Kelly Clarkson is grateful for her nanny's thoughtful Mother's Day present.

The 40-year-old singer and single mom revealed in a new interview that she "almost broke down" last Sunday when, in honor of Mother's Day, her family's nanny presented her with a very special gift.

"I literally almost cried — like, she walked into the kitchen and was like, 'Hey, for Mother's Day, I'm going to give you the gift of time and you can just do whatever you want,' " Clarkson recalled to Extra.

Clarkson shares her two children, 7-year-old daughter River Rose and 6-year-old son Remington Alexander, with her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. The pair finalized their divorce in March after splitting in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.

The Kelly Clarkson Show host emphasized that part of what made her Mother's Day gift so moving was that, as a working parent, free time is few and far between.

"I'm a single mom, right?" she said. "So I'm either at work or with kids."

Clarkson was joined in the interview by her American Song Contest co-host Snoop Dogg, who agreed with her on the topic of free time as a parent.

"No one understands how important time is," the rapper responded to Clarkson's heartwarming story.

Snoop Dogg lost his own mother, Beverly Tate, in October 2021, at the age of 70.

When it came to his Mother's Day celebrations this year, the legendary rapper shared that he made sure the day was all about his wife of nearly 25 years, Shante Broadus.

Snoop explained he threw Broadus a "Woman's Day" party, where only she and her fellow mom friends were allowed.

"It was all for her and her girls and that's what you do, get out the way and let 'em have some fun," the rapper said.

Although Clarkson may have forgone the party route for her own celebration, she gushed over the wonderful Mother's Day she was able to enjoy thanks to the "gift of time."

"I had the best day, and it was amazing," Clarkson concluded.
