Kelly Clarkson has been very open about all the physical ailments she's had as a result of her pregnancy, including non-stop nausea. But the singer has found a good way to distract herself: by making new music with her pal Martina McBride .
Kelly, who obviously doesn't believe in taking Christmas week off, tweeted on Thursday, "Recorded a soulful song with @martinamcbride and I have to say, it's pretty bad ass :) A nice distraction from being pregnant! Thanks girl!"
Martina is releasing an album of cover songs in March called Everlasting , and she's already recorded a duet with Gavin DeGraw for the project. It's likely that this duet with Kelly will appear on that disc, which will feature songs made famous by Aretha Franklin , Van Morrison , The Supremes , Elvis Presley and other legendary acts.
Kelly's now wrapping up a very successful holiday season. Not only did she get to celebrate her first Christmas as a married woman -- and a mom-to-be, to boot -- but she also has the satisfaction of knowing that her disc Wrapped in Red is Billboard 's #1 holiday album.
