Kelly Clarkson 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' appearance rings 'Beautiful Bells'

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Dec 6, 2013

Kelly Clarkson's "Wrapped in Red" has earned the singer another platinum disc. The million-selling holiday collection scored the biggest holiday debut on the Billboard 200 at No. 3, the best first-week sales for a female artist's Christmas album since 2010.

Yet, even with much to celebrate, Kelly visited the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" and spilled a few unpleasant details of her pregnancy. If that wasn't enough, she also sang a song called "Beautiful Bells" that was a lot about bells and less than beautiful. It was actually just a ruse, however. (See the video below.)

Although she says she's not a big drinker, Kelly told the talk-show host, "If I am drinking, it's kind of like I'm trying to win some award. It's really bad. ... 'Who's holding my hair.'"

On the subject of morning sickness, Kelly explained, "I vomit a good dozen times a day." When asking other moms whether they experienced the same thing, then finding out they didn't, she told Ellen her reaction is, "I want to hit all of them with my car."

Kelly also reveals that whether she and husband Brandon Blackstock have a boy or girl, they've chosen a name that will work for either gender. She wouldn't divulge the name but she did assure viewers that it won't be Blue Jazz or Sweater Mike. (So, if you had those guesses in the pool, sorry, you're out of luck!)
