Kelly Clarson has been taking a break from her busy music career to become a busy mom.
The former Idol winner has been dedicating her time to her newborn daughter River Rose since her arrival on 12 June, but the singer made a return to the spotlight on Thursday to take on the Ice Bucket Challenge, the social-media-driven stunt aiming to raise awareness and money for ALS – and she reveals her new physique in the video posted on her Facebook page.
The new mum admitted that she was afraid of dousing herself with ice cold water, but with her husband Brandon Blackstock by her side, the couple went ahead with the fundraising challenge.
“I’m really nervous,” said Kelly. “I was nominated by a ton of mean people to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and we’ve been trying to do it.”
Midway through the video, Kelly introduces her husband Brandon who joins her in naming those the couple nominate to do the challenge next.
“Narvel Blackstock, own it,” says Kelly, picking on her manager, who is also her father-in-law. “Definitely Narvel Blackstock,” adds Brandon, challenging his dad.
Perhaps stalling for time, Kelly can then be heard saying “I hope I can lift the bucket, it’s really heavy, okay, no wait, okay, one, two, three,” before finally unloading the bucket of icy water and running out of shot.
