Congratulations are in order for Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock.
The American Idol winner, 31, and her new husband are expecting their first child together. “I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever,” the People Like Us singer tweeted Tuesday.
The happy news comes a month after the couple wed in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee.
Just last week, the pop star hinted at the news to Jay Leno, but said, ”We are not announcing anything right now! We’re not, no.” However, ”Practice makes perfect! We’re trying, trying, trying … like rabbits!”
“We have two kids,” she went on to say, referring to her husband’s children, Savannah, 11, and Seth, 7, from a previous relationship. “And they’re so great. And I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five.”
Prior to this, Kelly talked about her hopes for a pregnancy come Christmas.
“I honestly never ever used to want to want kids because I’m kind of selfish with my career, but going to soccer games with Seth and doing homework with Savannah — I just really love it y’all,” Kelly recently gushed. “It’s so cool. It sounds so cheesy but it’s such a bigger point to life. I really lucked out with the whole kid situation. They’re amazing.”
