Why Kelly Clarkson Was ‘Frightened’ to Have Another Baby

08/20/2015 at 06:00 PM ET

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.”

Don’t let the crying fool you – they’re happy tears!

Kelly Clarkson revealed that she’s expecting her second child with husband Brandon Blackstock during Wednesday’s Los Angeles tour stop at the Staples Center.

The surprise announcement came while the American Idol winner, 33, was making her way through “Piece by Piece.” After holding back tears while introducing the song, Clarkson found herself struggling to get a handle on her emotions.

Instead, the singer stopped and told the crowd: “I was not planning on announcing this, but … I’m totally pregnant. I’m having a really hard time,” she explained of her inability to get through the song, which is both a kiss-off to her father and a paean to her husband for being a good dad.

Kelly Clarkson took a night off from her Piece by Piece tour this week for a special visit with daughter River Rose to New York City’s American Natural History Museum.

The “Since U Been Gone” singer and her husband Brandon Blackstock were joined by friends as they spent an evening at the storied Manhattan museum.

“My family & I had an amazing night at the museum! Thank you @AMNH,” she wrote on Instagram Saturday, sharing a photo of the group. “It was awesome & unforgettable!!”

Clarkson, 33, was dressed casually for the visit, wearing a plain black cap, jeans and a navy graphic T-shirt. She kept her hand on River’s stroller, where the 13-month-old happily sucked on a pacifier.

How Grandma Reba McEntire Bonded with Kelly Clarkson’s Daughter: ‘I Started Feeding Her!’

04/19/2015 at 11:00 PM ET

We know she’s an awesome mother-in-law, but how is Reba McEntire as a grandma?

As it turns out, she and and little River Rose have totally bonded — though it took a beat for Kelly Clarkson‘s 10-month-old baby girl to warm up to the country icon.

“Every time she looked at me, she’d start crying — just squawking! It was serious!” McEntire, 60, said backstage at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday. “So at Christmas at their house, I said, ‘Kelly, give her to me.’ I held her and started feeding her. She looked at the bottle, looked at me and smiled. We’ve been friends ever since.”

The singer and her adorable 10-month-old daughter River Rose are featured on the cover of Redbook‘s May issue, and although Clarkson is loving life with her little lady, she knows the importance of making time for her husband, too.
