It's no secret that Kelly Clarkson's weight has been scrutinized for years. Now that she's pregnant, however, she's looking forward to finally catching a break from the criticism regarding her figure.
Speaking to Parade before her baby news was revealed, the newlywed said she was excited to embrace her pregnancy curves. "Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can't wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!"
After she gives birth, don't expect the "People Like Us" singer to slim down in record time like other celebrities often do. "I've never been Gisele Bündchen," Clarkson said, "so ain't nobody expectin' that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don't expect a lot."
