Kelly Clarkson said she told her children the truth about their Easter baskets on Sunday.

According to People, the country singer said she told her two children – daughter River, 4, and son Remington, 3 – that she and her husband Brandon Blackstock, 42, made their Easter baskets.

She said:

“Even my nanny came in this morning and was like, ‘What did the Easter Bunny bring?’ ’ And I was like, ‘Wait what?’ I kind of just was like, ‘Mommy and daddy did these for you.’ I knew my mom always did it.”

Later, Clarkson said that she thought Easter was a day for parents to get credit for their efforts.

The “Voice” coach said:

“I thought Easter was for us. Sometimes I’m tired of giving credit to non-existent things. Like I’m very busy, and I took the time to shop at Target and put this all together. I did this — no bunny! They got chocolate, so they’re fine.”

Further, the 36-year-old shared her busy Easter Sunday schedule on Twitter.

She tweeted:

Yoga, coffee, easter baskets, egg hunt, breakfast with the little kiddos & hubby, & now I’m off to the studio to work on the new album! Happy Easter y’all!!  Not gonna lie, really excited to paint eggs w/ kiddos tonight

Clarkson confirmed that she worked on the holiday during her interview with People.

She joked:

“I don’t get many days to actually work on my record. So yeah, I had to work on Easter. Jesus didn’t mind, he told me.”

As People reports, Clarkson is set to host the Billboard Music Awards on May 1. This is her second year in a row hosting the event.
