Kelly Clarkson has been a ball of love since her Oct. 20 wedding with husband Brandon Blackstock and one woman couldn’t be happier for her: Blackstock’s ex-wife, Melissa.
“I love Kelly. I’ve known her for years,” Melissa, who has two a daughter, Savannah, 12, and a son, Seth, 6, with Blackstock, told People magazine. “I couldn’t ask for a better stepmother for my children. My kids love her.”
The feeling is mutual. In an interview with ABC News just a few days before her nuptials, Clarkson raved about her stepchildren, and said she hoped to add to the family soon.
“Brandon, he’s a great dad and we wanted to make sure it’s cool with [his kids], but they are really pumped about it,” she said. “We actually, probably, want two more and he’s got two, so four total. [The oldest] will be in her teens, so that’s kind of like a live-in babysitter.”
