Kelly Clarkson Announces Pregnancy on Twitter
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,Â 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 husbandâ€”and as soon as possible.Â â€śI want babiesâ€¦right off the bat! Iâ€™m totally gonna have a girlâ€¦I know it in my soul,â€ť Clarkson toldÂ 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,”Â she told Jay Leno in a Nov. 11 interview,Â according to US Weekly.
Congratulations to the happy couple, and good luck on future endeavors!
