Kelly Clarkson Tracks Heritage on ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 9.13.13 AM“Who Do You Think You Are?,” a documentary-style series on TLC that helps celebrities dig into their ancestry and trace their family tree, is welcoming Greek-American Kelly Clarkson to the show when new episodes premiere July 23.

In a promo for the upcoming season, Clarkson gets excited over some photos, saying, “Oh my gosh, is this his picture?,” and is later seen tearing up, but no big reveal is made as to what she discovered. Viewers will have to tune-in to find out what made Clarkson so emotional.

The recently engaged singer is of Greek descent on her mother’s side. She is also German and Irish, but it has been said that she considers herself mostly Greek and is able to speak the language fluently. During one interview, she attributed her womanly shape to her Greek roots: “I like my waist because it’s the smallest part of me! I do love my figure but I’m part Greek which means I’m curvy.”
