Leno: “Have you been trying?”
Clarkson: “Like a…”
Clarkson: “Like rabbits!”
Leno: “Like rabbits. So you want to have a rabbit.”
Clarkson: “A little bunny. No, I want a little baby with little feet and I just want to bite them.” (Via NBC)
The singer went on to say despite not wanting kids before, she now wants five.
Thirty-one-year-old Clarkson tied the knot with Brandon Blackstock in a small wedding on Oct. 20. He already has two children from a previous marriage, who are 7 and 11 years old. (Via Weiss Eubanks Films )
Clarkson has made it well-known she wouldn't drag her feet on the babymaking. Ten days after her wedding she said in a radio interview what she wanted for Christmas — to be pregnant. (Via E!)
And when it comes to work, the singer said, "My record label is freaking out because all I can talk about now are babies. We're really excited and want to get our family started." (Via Us Weekly)
