Kelly Clarkson's friend thinks her strong personality will make her a great mother.
Martina McBride believes the 'Stronger' hitmaker, who recently confirmed she is expecting a baby girl with her husband, Brandon Blackstock, will be a natural when it comes to motherhood because she is so ''fun.''
The country star, who recently recorded a ''soulful'' duet with the American Idol winner for Martina's upcoming album, 'Everlasting,' told People.com: ''She's really fun. Kelly's outgoing and very direct and I feel like she's be a fun mom.''
She added: ''She has a really good head on her shoulders and she's a strong person. I think that will be good for her and her child as well.''
Kelly, 31, has been battling severe morning sickness throughout her pregnancy and is following a very simple diet as a result.
She shared on Twitter recently: ''Ladies if you r pregnant & sick as a dog trust me when I say the one thing u will keep down might just be 'baked potatoes' #godblesspotatoes (sic)''
She later wrote: ''We just found out we're having a girl officially! I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha! (sic)''
The singer married Brandon, who has two children from his first marriage, Seth, seven, and Savannah, 11, in a low-key ceremony in Tennessee in October, and shortly afterwards she admitted she couldn't wait to get pregnant.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
