Kelly Clarkson, American Idol

Kelly Clarkson is ready to welcome her baby boy, but that's not all the pregnant songstress is ready to enjoy!

The "Piece by Piece" singer called into the Z100 Morning Show Thursday and opened up about everything from her pregnancy to her very emotional performance on American Idol. Even though she's itching to give birth to her future son, Kelly revealed she's also ready to welcome alcohol back into her life.

"Red wine...Oh my God I miss it so badly!" she told host Elvis Duran. "I know people always say you can have a glass, but I just have such complicated pregnancies that I don't want to risk it."

It's only about six more weeks, Kelly, so you're in the final stretch! Throughout her pregnancy Kelly has experienced some very emotional ups and downs, including her performance last week on the singing competition show. A combination of returning to her roots—she was the season one winner!—and having her husband, Brandon Blackstock, and daughter, River Rose, nearby all added up to some tears.

"It was kind of stars aligned for me to really be screwed emotionally," she explained. "It was just the last time I'm on Idol and my little kid is running around the same hallways that I was running around at 19, you know? I was just super screwed!"

She received rave reviews and critical praise for her moving rendition, even reducing Keith Urban to tears, but to her it was a humiliating experience. "I'm so embarrassed! It's so funny to me that everybody was like, 'It was remarkable!'...Well, crying on national television isn't really my idea of a good time!"

Kelly didn't witness Urban cry, but told Duran that she was relieved to have missed it because it would've only made her more emotional. "I was so glad I didn't see him! I didn't see him because I was just closing my eyes trying to plow through just so I didn't actually lose it completely and I'm glad I didn't see him," he added.

As soon as her baby boy arrives, she'll be too busy smiling from all the excitement to shed any more tears.
