And a baby makes four!

Kelly Clarkson spilled some seriously exciting news during her Los Angeles concert at Staples Center tonight—that she's pregnant with her second child!

The former American Idol star told the packed crowd, "This is not how I wanted to announce [that I'm pregnant]. My makeup artist is backstage hating me. I didn't want you to think I'm on pills or something."

She added, "I would like to apologize to my husband. This was not planned. I'm just so hormonal. Everything is great, I haven't vomited yet. That's a win y'all."

The exciting news comes after Clarkson's famously difficult first pregnancy, which she described months after giving birth to her little girl River Rose Blackstock back in June 2014.

In fact, during an interview on BBC's Radio 1 Breakfast Show she shared that she was hospitalized and had an overall "bad pregnancy, so I had to take off way more time than normal."

And in a sit-down with ET Canada, the crooner recalled how she suffered from many complications, including losing her famous voice shortly after giving birth, and initially didn't know how to handle all of the her health concerns.

"Afterwards was the part where I literally had a moment where I cried and drank wine all day," she explained. 

"I was like, ‘Oh God, I'm not going to be a singer anymore.' I was bawling to my husband and completely hammered, just going, ‘Oh my God, it's over. I don't know what I'm going to do I guess I could do more charity work.' I didn't know what I was going to do."

Clarkson tied the knot with Brandon Blackstock in a romantic ceremony in front of close friends, famous stars and family in 2013.
