Clarkson noted, “You lose weight in COVID; I have arrived, I have found it. What are you doing?’
Yearwood responded by noting that she was ‘wearing Spanx and I too lost my taste and smell, so food is a bit different at the moment.’
The songwriter She’s In Love With The Boy recalled first noticing that she had lost two of her senses after interacting with her husband, Garth Brooks.
“About five days later, I’m like,” honey, “because Garth makes my coffee every morning,” This is weak coffee … I love you, but did you make coffee here? ” It just was, ”she said.

Hard Discovery: Yearwood noted that she first noticed her taste and smell were affected by COVID-19 after her husband, Garth Brooks, made coffee one morning.
Yearwood also told Clarkson that it had been “about eight weeks” since she was last able to smell or taste anything.
The songwriter further noted that her eating habits had changed since she lost two of her senses, saying, “ It’s really weird, I think this is how normal people eat, so I think they eat when they’re hungry. and then they stop when they are full. ‘
The hitmaker then noted that she had adjusted her food preparation methods to compensate for her dull taste and smell.
Now it’s all about texture. I can tell if something is spicy, that’s about it … I love to cook, so when I cook, I just ask Garth, “Tell me if it needs more salt and pepper.” It’s the weirdest thing, ”she said.

When the show’s 39-year-old presenter noted that Brooks had managed not to sign COVID-19, Yearwood humorously said her husband was “ an alien and I think we’ve proven this. ”
The singer also recalled forcing her husband to keep their distance while fighting the coronavirus because she didn’t want to make the situation worse than it already was.
“I’m like, ‘You have to get away from me, you have to be quarantined in another room … I can’t give Garth Brooks a COVID, like you can’t get it,’ she said.
Yearwood also told Clarkson that her 59-year-old husband felt no side effects after receiving his vaccinations, which she explained by jokingly noting that he was an alien.

“He had the vaccine, he didn’t have a sore arm … I knew he wasn’t normal, but he’s just an alien,” the songwriter noted.
The Walkaway Joe singer and her husband have been romantically linked since 2002, although they had been friends for many years before that.
The country artist also became a stepmother to Brooks’ three children, whom he welcomed with his first wife, Sandy Mahl.
Before tying the knot with the Grammy-winning singer, Yearwood was married to Chris Latham from 1987 to 1991 and then was involved with bassist Bobby Reynolds until their divorce in 1999.
