Kelly Clarkson and her estranged husband, Brandon Blackstock, have put their two young children in therapy to help them through their divorce.
While chatting with "Extra," Kelly spoke about how daughter River Rose, 6, and son Remington Alexander, 4, are processing the split.
"We have a lot of help as far as therapists or child psychologists because we want to do it right," she said. "I definitely want to do it right. Everyone's sad and it's okay to be sad."
"It's just one day when you're like, 'Wow, this has forever changed' and it's not just my heart has changed, there's other little hearts, too," she continued, adding that it's been difficult to deal with the split in the public eye.
She's also adamant about "protecting these little kids you adore."
"It came out of nowhere," an insider told E! News at the time. "It's all so sad for the kids. They were always such a loving family. It never seemed like they had any issues."
Interestingly, a source told "Entertainment Tonight" that quarantining may have been the final straw for the couple.
"Kelly and Brandon had been having problems for several months and were making a conscious effort to work things out. They both hoped quarantining away from L.A. in Montana would help them work things out in their marriage, but instead the change in environment was actually detrimental," the source said. "The constant time together seemed to make an already challenging situation worse."
Kelly's busy schedule "definitely helped to keep her mind off things, but this recent downtime gave her the time she needed to think about her life and her marriage," the source said.
Last month, Kelly told the Los Angeles Times that she'll stay mum about much of the divorce because of the kids.
"I am a very open person, but I'm not going to be able to be truly open about this in certain aspects because there's kids involved," she said. "I think that I will navigate a way in which to be open and honest about it eventually, probably via the show, and it'll probably, I'm assuming, happen organically when someone says something in conversation or something. It definitely wouldn't be planned."
