Kelly Clarkson and her adorable daughter River, 10 months, take the cover of Redbook magazine’s May 2015 issue.
Here’s what the 32-year-old entertainer had to share:
On putting her relationship with husband Brandon Blackstock first: “I always swore ours would not be a relationship where we have to schedule sex. That is never going to happen. We put each other first. I call it the oxygen-mask mentality—take care of yourself first!”
On her weight: “I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it.”
On the pressures of losing her baby weight: “There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism – that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has.”
On if Brandon is her other half: “Goodness, no! Brandon is not my other half. He’s a whole and I’m a whole. I’ve never believed in someone taking care of me, and that’s probably because I grew up poor and without a lot of family stability.”
