Kelly Clarkson has finally confirmed what we’ve all been waiting for via Twitter: "I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever." A big congrats to my all-time favorite American Idol!
Believe it or not: Kelly says she never wanted to be a mom. But all that changed when she met the love of her life, Brandon Blackstock (who has two kids from a previous relationship). While everyone presumed Kelly’s recent slim down was to look good in her wedding pictures, Kelly told Taste of Country it was actually baby-making prep. “It’s all about making my body the most healthy inside out. And I’m reading all these books,” she said.
Ever since she and Brandon got married a month ago in Tennessee, having a baby is pretty much all the singer has talked about! "I want babies!" the newlywed declared in a radio interview on Oct. 30. "Everybody keeps saying, ‘What do you want for Christmas?' And I'm like, ‘I want to be pregnant.'"
She continued the baby talk on Jay Leno on Nov. 11. Though Jay pressed her on whether she was pregnant, Kelly wasn’t ready to make her big announcement—only telling the talk show host, "[We want a baby] like now! Practice makes perfect! We're trying, trying, trying. I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five."
I’m so happy for Kelly, and I love that she told her devoted fans first! She is the most down-to-earth celebrity, and is going to be the cutest pregnant woman ever. You know she’s going to have one rockin’ baby shower too! I can’t wait for more details!
