Jill Biden says she’s looking forward to two specific indulgences once the threat of COVID-19 is over: some fries and a cocktail.

The first lady is asked by a viewer during an interview on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” airing Thursday about one thing she’d like to do in a post-coronavirus world.

“Maybe go have a martini and some french fries,” Biden, 69, responds with a laugh in a preview clip from the daytime talk show.

That meal would seemingly be a post-pandemic splurge for Biden, who’s called herself a “pretty healthy eater in general.”

“I didn’t grow up with a lot of snack foods in our home. My mother never bought soda, and she got those cookies I hated,” Biden told Self magazine in 2016. “So I think that has sort of carried through.”

In the sit-down with Clarkson at the White House, Biden also opens up about her 1975 divorce from her first husband, Bill Stevenson.

Clarkson filed for divorce from her own ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, last June.

“If I hadn’t gotten divorced, I never would’ve met Joe,” the first lady says. The Bidens tied the knot in 1977.

“I can’t wait until that day comes for you,” she tells Clarkson, after the singer and “American Idol” alum says she couldn’t imagine getting married again.
