Kelly Clarkson, mother of four children (including two stepchildren from husband Brandon Blackstock's first marriage) doesn't hold back when it comes to the challenges of motherhood. She recently revealed that she spanks her children, has been vocal about how much she hated pregnancy, and, during a recent a TCA event for The Voice, Kelly shared her secret to surviving parenthood: alcohol.
"Wine is necessary," the singer joked, admitting that her kids can be challenging. While all children are difficult at times, celebrities rarely get so candid about their parenting woes or their coping mechanisms, even if they are half joking. It's refreshing to hear a star admitting that motherhood is hard — and that wine helps.
