Kelly Clarkson's decision to join 'The Voice' was influenced by her husband and her kids.

The chart-topping pop star is poised to appear on the TV talent show and has admitted her family, including her three-year-old daughter River and 16-month-old son Remington, influenced her decision.

Kelly - who married her husband Brandon Blackstock in 2013 - shared: "I want it to be a great experience for my whole family, and that's what I have to think about at this point in my life."

Brandon also manages fellow 'Voice' coach Blake Shelton, and she's confessed that the show's schedule is convenient for her young family, as they're used to organising their time around filming.

She told "We're used to the 'Voice' schedule, we already have to work around it because of our family."

And Kelly admitted her pregnancies have been the only thing to have stopped her appearing on the popular TV show before now.

The 'Because of You' hitmaker said: "Part of the reason why I never sat in the seats is because I knew one day I'd probably do the show. I knew it was going to happen. I'm a little superstitious."

Kelly initially rose to fame on 'American Idol' in 2002, and the show is set to return to the air in 2018.

The blonde star would have loved to have appeared on the programme where she made her name, but she isn't dwelling on the situation.

Kelly explained: "Would it have been awesome to come back to the show that started me and help give someone that start? Yes!

"But that doesn't mean I can't do the same thing on 'The Voice'. That's my goal. I want to have someone on my team, whether they win or not, to have a successful career after being on the show."
