Kelly Clarkson is pregnant!

The star revealed that she's expecting her second baby with hubby Brandon Blackstock during a tour stop last night in Los Angeles. But she hadn't been expecting to spill the beans!

The singer was was trying to perform "Piece by Piece"—a song about her less-than-good dad, and her husband, who is a great one—but was struggling through her tears.

She didn't want people to think she was going through some personal crisis, or on drugs, or anything else the rumormongers could drum up. So she nipped it in the bud.

She stopped what she was doing and addressed the crowd: "I was not planning on announcing this, but—I'm totally pregnant!" she said. She explained that she was feeling just so emotional!

She continued that she was having a hard time performing the intensely personal song under the circumstances, but that she wouldn't let the crowd down. "I'm gonna nail the s*** out of this song. That was not how I wanted to announce that. I hate this song right now," she said jokingly, adding, "My makeup artist is backstage hating me right now. I just don't want you to think I'm on pills or drunk."

Once again, Clarkson's casual candor is a thing of beauty!

In fact, she was quite candid about her experience with her first pregnancy—which was so tough, she even once called it "horrible" on BBC's Radio 1 Breakfast Show, and explained that she had been hospitalized.

She also told Ellen DeGeneres in December 2013, "I vomit a good dozen times a day. It's like bad. I vomited before coming out here." Fortunately, she told the crowd last night, she hasn't vomitted yet in this pregnancy!

Even despite all she went through to bring River Rose into the world, she always said it didn't scare her away from wanting baby number two. And now we know she meant it.

Congrats to the expecting mama!
