After admitting for the past few months that she wanted to have a baby immediately, Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson is officially pregnant.
“I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :),” the “American Idol” winner tweeted earlier Tuesday.
Clarkson, 31, married Brandon Blackstock last month in Tennessee in a small ceremony with Blackstock’s two children from a previous relationship — Savannah, 12, and Seth, 6 — present.
Before the wedding in October, Clarkson told ABC News just how ready she was to expand her new family with a baby of her own.
“Like 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 baby sitter.”
Clarkson has said how much she loves being a stepmom to Blackstock’s two children.
“I actually really dig the mom thing. … I am quick to go, ‘I told you not to touch that!’” she told Ryan Seacrest in August. “I am totally my mom. My mom was a hard mom.”
Congrats to Kelly and Brandon!
