The singer, 38, opened up on The Kelly Clarkson Show Friday about how the mother-daughter conversation backfired in a hilarious way.
"My daughter became obsessed when she was 4 years old about where she came from. And then she started being nervous about death. I was like, 'What is happening?' " she explained.
Clarkson continued, "She was talking about death and all these things, and I wanted her to feel good about not dying, or anything like that and then also, like, 'Well, you were a part of Mommy, so you'll always have me, so even if Mommy dies, you were a part of me.' "
The Voice coach then told her daughter, "'You were in Mommy's tummy, actually. So, you were always a part of me, so that'll never go away. You're from my body, so you carry Mommy on, so, in a sense, Mommy will never die with you because I'm a part of you.' "
That explanation led River to start assuming that every woman was pregnant.
"And, then, she took that as in any woman in the world, regardless if you have a stomach or not, walks up to and goes, 'So you have a baby in there?' It just doesn't matter who it is, she is just very excited that 'Don't worry. If you die, she's still gonna carry you on,' " an embarrassed Clarkson recalled.
She added, "It's, like, you missed the … we shouldn't tell people that they're pregnant."
"Yup, that happened," the "Miss Independent" singer said.
