Kelly Clarkson Expecting First Child

ClarksonweddingPop songstress Kelly Clarkson couldn’t be happier. The newlywed announced via Twitter that she and husband Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together.

“I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :),” Clarkson wrote.

The couple were married in an intimate ceremony at Blackberry Farms in Tennessee last month. Clarkson has been very vocal about wanting to start a family right after the wedding. When she visited “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last week, she told the late-night host that her and Blackstock were “trying, trying, trying” for a baby. The 31-year-old singer is already stepmom to Blackstock’s two children from a previous marriage.

“We have two kids,” Clarkson said in her interview with Leno. “They’re so great. And I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five.”

No word yet on when Clarkson’s little one is expected to arrive.
