Kelly Clarkson revealed Wednesday that she’s expecting her second child with husband Brandon Blackstock, but the announcement may have been a bit of a surprise given some comments she made after the birth of her daughter River Rose.
Earlier this year, Clarkson, 33, opened up to PEOPLE about why she was having some nervous jitters over a potential baby number two.
“I’m frightened to have another one,” Clarkson told PEOPLE in February. “I want another one — like in a couple years.”
She added, “But I’m just a little frightened because she’s so perfect.”

Since River was such a good sleeper and a jovial little one right off the bat, the singer joked: “I feel like something horrible’s gonna come out of me. Because she’s so great — like, the yin to her yang.”
“But I won’t put that out there,” she finished. “I’m gonna project happiness.”
Looks like it worked! Clarkson, who had a tough pregnancy with River, said onstage during her announcement that thankfully she hadn’t “vomited yet. That is a freakin’ win, y’all.”
