Kelly Clarkson announces she's pregnant - during a gig!

Kelly Clarkson is expecting her second child with husband Brandon Blackstock. 

The 33-year-old singer-songwriter - who gave birth to daughter River Rose in June last year - revealed her happy news in the middle of her concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (Aug 19), stopping during a performance of her track 'Piece By Piece' to share the news with her fans. 

Kelly, who broke down in tears as she revealed her pregnancy, said: "I was not planning on announcing this. I'm totally pregnant!" 

The former 'American Idol' winner has previously spoken of her desire to have more children, but said she would wait until the end of her current tour. 

She said: "I do America until October, and then Canada in October, so I think we're coming here in November. 

"Hopefully, because I plan on being pregnant very soon after that, so hopefully I get here!" 

Kelly has yet to mention the news on her Twitter or Instagram accounts. 

Congratulations Kelly and Brandon!
