The mum-of-two says she refused to let the Easter Bunny take credit for the Easter baskets she made for her kids…

Kelly Clarkson has refused to let the Easter Bunny take responsibility for the Easter baskets she made for her kids. Speaking to People Magazine, Kelly says that parents should be given more credit for the effort they put into Easter, even if it means destroying some of the magic of the Easter Bunny…

Hard Work

Kelly said she wanted her children to know the thought and time that had gone into creating their Easter treats.”Sometimes I’m tired of giving credit to non-existent things,” she said. “I’m very busy, I took the time to shop at Target and put all this together. I did this – no Easter Bunny. They got chocolate, so they’re fine.”

Kelly didn’t think anything of it until her nanny arrived and asked her kids what they had received. “Even my nanny came in this morning and was like ‘What did the Easter Bunny bring?’ and I was like, ‘Wait, what?'” she said. Kelly is currently finishing her album so spent most of the long weekend in the studio. “I don’t get many days to actually work on my record, so yeah, I had to work on Easter,” she told the magazine. “Jesus didn’t mind, he told me!”

While we can understand where Kelly is coming from (parents put so much effort into Easter and Christmas!) we do think that there is nothing better than seeing your kids faces when they see what the ‘Easter Bunny’ has left behind – it really does make it all worth it.

Do you think the magic of Easter and Christmas is the most important thing or does Kelly have a point? Let us know in the comments.


  • Parents do a lot of things they get no credit for I like the idea of children believing in something so magical but I have no problem with other people making different choices.

  • They will understand when they find out in their own time who really put in the effort. Why spoil something fun and magical so she can get an ego boost? Selfish IMO and what if her kids tell others? My ex-husband told our daughter before she even questioned it. I was not happy at all. There’s only so many years they get to be excited over something like this. If my youngest (diff father) asks with serious doubt then I will tell her, but until then, I don’t care if an imaginary thing gets credit, I care more about her excitement and happiness. There’s enough things a parent does that they can explain requires effort.

  • Not my way of going about it but each to their own I guess.

  • I loved and believed in the magic as long as I was able to. My son loved it too and has in no way been harmed by it. There’s nothing wrong with a little fantasy and magic until the harsh reality of what can be a cruel world, hits you.

  • I believe in the magic and spirit of the season. There is so much joy and belief that anything is possible. And important life lessons in the spirit of giving and acceptance.

  • Why not tell the children that she made the baskets for them but also put another egg and say it was left for them from the Easter Bunny. As children get older they realise the truth but let them be children with hopes and dreams while they are still young.

  • Glad my kids aren’t friends with her kids. What a way to ruin a magical childhood rite of passage. Plenty of time to understand how much effort parents put in when they’re older. In my opinion, she sounds pretty selfish to me!

  • My children know there are different standards that done. They see me make their Easter things and help now too with it. The younger ones still believe in the myth things, it just that they do not do all the work. At Christmas the young ones know that Santa’s toys are cheaper to buy to explain why he does not give equal costing toys to all. That is why Santa may only give a little present to one family while another family children gets heaps.

  • Children are only little for so long, let the magic last

  • At some stage she can take the credit but why spoil the fun just so she gets some credit?

  • I personally loved the magic of make believe.. and my girls loved it too.. they’ve turned into well adjusted humans with children of their own now and they are having fun doing the same with their children

  • Each to their own. Personally I don’t want or need credit for the ‘work put into easter’ or Christmas for that matter. Kids only believe for a few short years and why not enjoy it!

  • I have spent years working hard to keep the magic alive. My eldest is 22 this year, my youngest is currently 9 but will be 10 in December and she is not silly. My 16yo and 14yo obviously just care about the chocolate. Last year we spent Easter on a cruise I agonised over what to to do and took eggs onboard. This year we were at a friends property. I found cute Easter bags (we usually hunt inside) and loaded them up. I toll an extra suitcase to hide said eggs
    My youngest came into my room at least four times before I got out of bed.
    She didn’t even notice. When she found out she didn’t care
    I’m so glad I didn’t plant jellybeans to sprout the $30 or so I spent on on lollipops.
