Move aside macaroni necklaces, chore coupons and scented candles, because singer Kelly Clarkson received the most coveted Mother’s Day gift this year.
The single and extremely busy mom revealed to “Extra” on Tuesday that she “almost broke down” on Sunday when her nanny presented her with a very special present.
“I literally almost cried — like, she walked into the kitchen and was like, ‘Hey, for Mother’s Day, I’m going to give you the gift of time, and you can just do whatever you want,’ ” Clarkson said.
Clarkson shares two children — daughter River Rose, 7, and son Remington Alexander, 6 — with her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. The couple finalized their divorce in March after splitting in June 2020 after seven years of marriage.
“The Kelly Clarkson Show” host, Grammy-winning singer and Wayfair queen emphasized that part of what made her Mother’s Day gift so moving was that, as a working parent, she doesn’t get much time to herself.
“I’m a single mom, right?” she told “Extra.” “So I’m either at work or with kids.”
Clarkson said that, thanks to her nanny’s thoughtful gesture, she had “the best day.” So here’s hoping Kelly Brianne spent it doing what she loves most — watching a few Sandra Bullock movies.
