Kelly Clarkson is EXPECTING!


Our first AMERICAN IDOL®, Kelly Clarkson, is going to be a mom! The newlywed announced the news on Twitter yesterday saying, “I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)”

Kelly hadn't been hiding her desire to have children. Just a week ago, Kelly was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and told the host, “We're trying, trying, trying. We have two kids, and they're so great. And I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five.”

On October 20, 2013, Kelly married Brandon Blackstock at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. At that time, she became a stepmother to Brandon's two kids, Savannah and Seth, and she became a stepdaughter to her idol and friend, Reba McEntire (Brandon's stepmom), who is married to Narvel Blackstock, Kelly's manager!

Kelly has been working on some other projects in addition to Little Blackstock. She released her sixth studio album, Wrapped in Red, on October 25, 2013. The album includes five original holiday songs - all of which Kelly had a hand in writing - and nine Christmas classics. Wrapped in Red debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving her the biggest first week for a female Christmas record since 2010. Kelly is also nominated for American Country Awards: “Artist Of The Year” and “Single Of The Year” (for her collaboration with Vince Gill on “Don't Rush”). The award show airs December 10 at 8/7c on FOX.

Congratulations, Kelly & Brandon! We can't wait to meet the little one.
