Kelly Clarkson's children are receiving therapy to help them deal with their parents' divorce. The pop icon revealed in an interview with Extra published Monday that she was doing her best to protect her two children, whom she shares with estranged husband Brandon Blackstock, and part of that meant getting professional help.

"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,'" Clarkson revealed.

"We have a lot of help as far as therapists or child psychologists 'cause we want to do it right," she added. "Everyone's sad and it's OK to be sad."

The "Stronger" singer said she had been turning to friends and family for support.

"I have a great family and friends that are there for me," she explained. "It's a very hard thing to navigate, to be able to be honest and share your story, so maybe you can help someone else, but at the same time protecting these little kids you adore."

Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock after seven years of marriage in June and requested joint custody over their two children, according to court documents. In a September interview with Today, she admitted the split had taken its toll.

"I mean, it's no secret. My life has been a little bit of a dumpster ... personally, it's been a little hard the last couple months," she said.

Clarkson added that she was channeling all her emotions into her new album, which she is hoping to release later this year, and had been receiving feedback from her children.

"It's very honest," she said of her songs. "There's one that my kids sing in the car. I'm going through mixes, and I'm just, like, 'This is weird.' Like, it's your relationship. I've never written about my life to where my kids are singing along."
