Kelly Clarkson always says exactly what's on her mind, so when Parade magazine asked her what she'll most look forward to in pregnancy, the Grammy winner infused her usual sense of humor into her answer.
"Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can't wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!" she said.
The "American Idol" alum, 31, kept up her candid answers on how she'll handle the pressure to drop the baby weight immediately post birth.
"I've never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain't nobody expectin' that!" she added. "I like to set a [low] standard so people don't expect a lot."
Clarkson, who married Brandon Blackstock last month in Tennessee, announced earlier this week that she was expecting her first baby with her new husband.
"I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)," she tweeted on Tuesday.
On whether the baby will be a boy or girl, Clarkson told Parade she's sure it will be a girl.
"I'm totally gonna have a girl. I'm manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you're gonna be like, 'That chick knew it!'" she said.
Blackstock already has two children - Savannah, 12, and Seth, 6 - from a previous relationship, and now this new baby. A large family is something Clarkson is totally fine with.
"I was single for almost seven years," she said. "Every Christmas, it was like, 'Seriously, I'm still pathetically alone? Awesome. I'm still telling people I'm OK with it? I'm not.'"
