Kelly Clarkson: Baby on the Way Is ‘Best Early Christmas Present’


Kelly Clarkson dropped a bombshell on her fans on Tuesday … she and new husband Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child!

The parents-to-be tied the knot just last month when they eloped in Tennessee with only Brandon’s two children present.

When Kelly called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest shortly after, she gushed that her October 20 nuptials were “really awesome!”

And she added that her family were not the least bit upset that they didn’t get to be there when she became Mrs. Blackstock.

“Honestly, I thought out of all the people, my mom would have been bummed just because I’m her youngest daughter, but she was so excited,” Kelly explained. “She’s like, ‘I don’t have to go get a dress. I don’t have to feel fat in something. I don’t have to take pictures.’ So she understood. She’s on my schedule [too] so she sees how busy we are. But everybody was really supportive.”

Congrats to Kelly and Brandon!
