Kelly Clarkson makes mid-concert pregnancy announcement

It's two dependents for Miss Independent.

Kelly Clarkson revealed during her Staples Center concert on Wednesday that she is "totally pregnant" — as opposed to partially.

This will be baby No. 2 for Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock, lending a bit of joy to an otherwise bummed-out family who are reeling from the separation of parents-in-law Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock.

The news came after Clarkson broke down while singing Piece By Piece, a song about her dad.

"I wasn't planning on announcing… totally pregnant," she said. "That was not planned," she added. "I just didn't want you to think I was crazy or something. Honestly, I'm so hormonal today. Nothing's wrong. Everything's great. I haven't vomited yet."

That's good news, because her first pregnancy was exceptionally terrible.

"I had to kind of take longer off because I had such a horrible pregnancy — like, I was like hospitalized," she told BBC Radio at the time, adding that she would vomit up to 25 times a day.

Staples Center was quick to share Clarkson's good news, tweeting, "We think that is a first for an artist to announce that she is pregnant during a show from our stage! @kelly_clarkson #PieceByPieceTour."

Clarkson and talent manager Brandon Blackstock wed in October 2013. They welcomed daughter River Rose Blackstock in June 2014.

And that, my friends, is what we call pregnancy amnesia.
