Kelly Clarkson plays on the beach with two kids after admitting 'divorce is never easy' on show premiere

KELLY Clarkson celebrated the season 2 premiere of her talk show, where she opened up about her difficult divorce, by taking her kids out for a day on the beach.

The 38-year-old singer filed for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock in June, and the exes share two kids together – daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4.

On Monday, Kelly kept her mind off of “emotional rollercoaster” of a split by spending the final day of summer at the beach with her kids.

The Voice coach wore black workout capris, a red long-sleeved shirt, a beige sunhat and a pair of sunglasses while chasing around her daughter and son on the sand.

The family splashed around together in the water, played in the sand and ran along the edge of the shining Manhattan Beach water.

On Tuesday, Kelly shared on her The Kelly Clarkson Show that one of her kids is back at school while the other is doing virtual learning.

The talk show returned with its season 2 premiere on Monday, and the Breakaway singer opened the broadcast by admitting to viewers that life has been hard since her and Brandon’s split.

"2020 has been a dumpster fire," the 38-year-old told her audience as she welcomed them to the show.

"2020 has brought a lot of change also to my personal life. Definitely didn't see anything coming that came.

"But what I'm dealing with is hard because it involves more than just my heart. It involves a lot of little hearts.

"You know, we have four kids and divorce is never easy, and we're both from divorced families, so we know the best thing here is to protect our children and their little hearts."

She continued to explain that she's "usually very open" and that she "usually talks about everything," but that this time around, she will only talk at times about how it "affects [her] personally."

Later on the show, she shared that John Legend's "sexy" new album has been part of her playlist lately, despite her newly-single status.

Kelly also joked about how nothing romantic is "happening in my world" as the reason why she couldn't recall the phrase "renewing a couple's vows."

The hitmaker filed for divorce from her husband in June, citing “irreconcilable differences."

She also requested joint custody of their two children.
