Kelly looked healthy and happy as she shared with Ellen that following the birth of son Remington in April, her family is complete.
'We have four because I married into two - we have a 15, nine, two and five month old,' she explained.
'I already have days where I like, cry, so we don't need any more kids,' she said, laughing.

No! Kelly acted shocked when Ellen asked her if she plans to have more children, pointing out she already has four, having become mom to her husband's two kids from his first marriage
As for the her now two-year-old daughter River Rose, Kelly said the toddler is becoming a 'terrorist.'
'She's so bossy,' she told Ellen. 'She can be just the most lovable human and then just, like, mean.'
And the singer, who is married to Brandon Blackstock, her manager's son, revealed that River Rose blows hot and cold over her younger sibling, whom they call Remy.
'Anytime I hold him it's like, 'I don't know what you're doing in my spot.' She's so jealous in that moment,' she said.
But, she shared, her daughter happily helps out with feeding her brother and helping look after him.

Kelly's book called River Rose And The Musical Lullaby is published Tuesday and was inspired by and named for her precious little girl.
And she's planning more tales having signed a deal with HarperCollins for multiple books.
'I had all these stories already in play from all the places she's been,' she told the Toronto Sun.
'The whole idea was, 'Why don't we make each place, whether it be Australia, Asia or London, all the places she's been different books?' She gets to travel a lot and I know kids love adventure.'
