Kelly Clarkson has said she doesn’t care if her daughter is gay as long as she’s happy.
The ‘Heartbeat Song’ singer said she never worries about any of her children, including new baby River Rose, will grow up gay.
‘Oh, I don’t care,’ she told PrideSource. ‘I mean, here’s what I hope for her: I just hope she finds love. It took me a while, man and there was a lot of heartache throughout those years.’
She added: ‘You know, as long as she’s happy, I don’t care either way, and neither does my husband. And we have two other kids as well, and we don’t care either way for all of them.’
Clarkson has already thought about what she would say if any of her kids came out.
‘I’d be like, "Awesome! When do we meet him or her?"’ she said. ‘Honestly, it’s so funny, it doesn’t even register in my world as different. I don’t know why. But yeah, it doesn’t. I’m glad it doesn’t.’
In Clarkson’s new video Heartbeat Song, it shows a gay couple who genuinely got engaged during filming.
‘I think it’s silly that we’re still talking about gay rights. I just live in this world where people are accepted, so it’s very hard for me to even realize that that still exists,’ she explained. ‘That [gay couple] was a no-brainer, and I didn’t even think, "Oh, I’m making a statement for gay rights".
‘I was making a statement for the loss of love and the hope that you can still find it, regardless of what form that comes in.’
She added: ‘Love is love in whatever relationship it may be in.’
