Kelly Clarkson shared how her children are in therapy to help them amid their parents’ divorce.
Clarkson shared River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4, with Brandon Blackstock.
In a joint interview with fellow “Voice” coach Gwen Stefani, Clarkson, 38, shared how she’s been focusing on her kids since filing for divorce from Blackstock, 43, in June.
“We have a lot of help as far as therapists or child psychologists because we want to do it right,” Clarkson revealed.
“I definitely want to do it right. Everyone’s sad and it’s okay to be sad.”
“It’s just one day when you’re like, ‘Wow, this has forever changed and it’s not just my heart has changed, there’s other little hearts, too,” she continued.
Clarkson also shared how it has been hard to deal with the divorce as a public figure and “at the same time protecting these little kids you adore.”
Stefani, who shares sons Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6 with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, praised Clarkson for “doing a really great job.”
“I think it’s hard to be a public person, but now that you add in a family … they didn’t choose it,” Stefani, 51, added.
Clarkson admitted in an interview last month how despite being a “very open person,” she won’t be “truly open” about the split, “because there’s kids involved … It’s a lot to process and deal with, just as a family. So because it’s not just me, I probably won’t go too deep with it.”
Blackstock also has a daughter, Savannah, 18, and son, Seth, 13, from a previous marriage.
