Kelly Clarkson is praising fellow “American Idol” champion Carrie Underwood to break her silence about her difficult road to pregnancy.

Underwood, 35, recently revealed she suffered three separate miscarriages before getting pregnant of her second child.

The country superstar admitted to getting “mad” about the ordeal during an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning” that aired Sept. 16.

Clarkson thanked Underwood for sharing her battle and congratulated her with her pregnancy with baby No.2.

“I’m so happy for her,” Clarkson told Entertainment Tonight on Saturday, “because I didn’t know many of the situations that are going on behind the scenes, and I have a lot of friends who have been through that several times.”

“And that’s just – it’s a really cool thing [they did],” Clarkson, 36, added. “I was e-mailing her, because I was like, ‘It is so important that you talk about it.'”

Clarkson acknowledged talking about a miscarriage is not easy, but it is important to break the stigma around the topic.

The singer, however, said that the opportunity to discuss the topic ” women who feel inferior, or feel that there is something wrong with them, it makes them feel good, and that those people are going through.”

Clarkson called it ” a really hardcore thing to be a woman.”

In the CBS interview, Underwood admitted she was devastated when multiple pregnancies “didn’t work out.”

“I’m sort of planned in 2017, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” she said. “We got pregnant in early 2017, and that didn’t work.”

The star revealed she was pregnant again in the spring, but that time also didn’t work out.

“Pregnant again, in early 2018. Didn’t work out. So, at that time, it was just kind of ‘Okay, like, what’s the deal? What is all this?'”

At one point in the interview, Underwood shared when she got pregnant a fourth time and a bath when she felt she was losing another baby.

Fortunately, when she went to the doctor the next day she got a clean bill of health, both for themselves and the baby.

Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher got married in July 2010. Their 3-year-old son Isaiah was born in February 2015.

Underwood unveiled the latest addition to the family in an Instagram video posted on Aug. 8.
