Piece by piece, Kelly Clarkson is starting a new life in New York City.
After The Kelly Clarkson Show host moved her daytime talk show from Los Angeles to the Big Apple, she's getting candid on how the relocation affected her and her two kids: daughter River Rose, 9, and son Remington Alexander, 7, whom she shares with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.
"I'll be real honest: I thought I was making a horrible decision," Kelly told USA Today in an interview published Oct. 16. "I knew I needed a fresh start and couldn't be in LA. I really wanted to be in Montana, but you can't really do a show from there quite yet. So I was like, ‘The only other option would probably be New York.'"
She added, "I genuinely love it, and I love that my kids love it."
And not only do the kids like living on the East Coast, but Kelly—who finalized her divorce from Brandon in March 2022—also ensured their abode was up to par.
