Kelly Clarkson Announces Pregnancy on Twitter

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is having a baby!

She announced the news Tuesday afternoon on twitter.

“I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)” she wrote.

The announcement comes one month after Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock, son of her manager and step-son of country legend Reba McEntire.

The 31-year-old American Idol alum has been publicly pining for a baby for weeks.

She told a reporter during an Oct. 9 interview that she was ready to have a baby with her new husband—and as soon as possible.  “I want babies…right off the bat! I’m totally gonna have a girl…I know it in my soul,” Clarkson told radio host Elvis Duran.

The baby will have two ready-made older siblings: Blackstock’s two children from a previous relationship, Savannah, 12, and Seth, 6.

And apparently Clarkson doesn’t plan to stop at three.

“We have two kids, and they’re so great. And I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five,” she told Jay Leno in a Nov. 11 interview, according to US Weekly.

Congratulations to the happy couple, and good luck on future endeavors!
