During a segment that featured various moms asking the 38-year-old questions about motherhood, Kelly soon found herself talking about an awkward bonding moment she had with River, six.
She recalled: “My daughter became obsessed when she was 4 years old about where she came from.
“And then she started being nervous about death. I was like, ‘What is happening?'”
The entertainer continued: “She was talking about death and all these things, and I wanted her to feel good about not dying, or anything like that and then also, like, ‘Well, you were a part of Mommy, so you’ll always have me, so even if Mommy dies, you were a part of me.'”
The 38-year-old also told her virtual audience of moms that River previously was interested in where ‘babies come from’ – which led the little one to think all women are expectingCredit: NBC

Kelly, who shares River and 4-year-old son Remington with ex Brandon Blackstock, then revealed she told her daughter: “‘You were in Mommy’s tummy, actually. So, you were always a part of me, so that’ll never go away.
“‘You’re from my body, so you carry Mommy on, so, in a sense, Mommy will never die with you because I’m a part of you.'”

However, River then started to believe that every woman is expecting.
Kelly said: “And, then, she took that as in any woman in the world, regardless if you have a stomach or not, walks up to and goes, ‘So you have a baby in there?’
“It just doesn’t matter who it is, she is just very excited that ‘Don’t worry. If you die, she’s still gonna carry you on.'”

She added: “It’s, like, you missed the … we shouldn’t tell people that they’re pregnant…”
All this comes as the TV personality continues to deal with the impact of her split from her ex – a divorce she recently called “horrible.”
Kelly, who filed for divorce due to “irreconcilable differences,” asked for joint physical and legal custody of their children, but she won primary as she and Brandon have had a “difficult time” with co-parenting.

Brandon also has two kids, Savannah, 18, and Seth, 13, from a previous relationship.
Aside from her relationship issues, Kelly also accused Brandon, her agent, of “defrauding her out of millions” after her father-in-law Narvel sued the performer and claimed she owed his company $1.4million from her earnings on The Voice.
Kelly has not been shy about opening up about parting ways with Brandon, previously revealing on her popular talk show that there have been “so many hard parts” of the process over the last few months.
She explained: “The hardest for me is the kids, that’s the hardest for me. I always, as women especially, I think we’re trained, Alicia [Keys] and I were talking earlier, to take it all on.
“And you can deal with it and you’re fine, but it’s your babies that you worry about.”
