Let’s call a spade a spade here and get real: Kelly Clarkson was pregnant when she got married and she knew it. In fact, I’d venture a guess that it’s the reason this wedding got pushed forward so quickly when not too long ago, she was “too busy” to think about her wedding. Still, I’m a modern lady, so that’s neither here nor there – I just wish people didn’t feel the need to hide this or prescribe to the idea that they need to get a shotgun wedding for it to be honourable – it was her fiancé, after all, and even if it wasn’t, so what?
In any case, Kelly has been rambling about how she wants a baby so badly and in time for Christmas and she’s got her wish now, but she did receive some advice a while back from fellow mom Adele, who told her to chill the fuck out and not be too obsessed with getting a baby in her.
From US Weekly:
“I ran into her at the Grammys last year, and I was like, ‘So, when is your next album coming out?’” Clarkson, 31, told Us Weekly in a recent interview. “She knows now I’m a superfan. She’s so sweet. She’s my big favorite to work with just because I’m a huge fan. She told me she was a big fan, too, and gave me some advice.”
So, what specific words of wisdom did the Grammy-winning Brit share with the pop star? “She said, ‘Girl, don’t have a baby ’cause everything else will go on the back burner. I’m so happy living in babyland,’” Clarkson recalled.

Kelly Clarkson is pregnant, y’all! Let’s say it: that was fast. She just got married. Congrats, Kelly and your husband who no one really cares about all that much compared to you but we care because he makes you happy so yay! It looks like she got her wish.
She tweeted the good news:
This “Christmas present” is definitely better than Jane Austen’s ring.

Kelly Clarkson has pretty much been shouting from the mountaintops about how desperate she is for her new husband, Brandon Blackstock, to get her pregnant in time for Christmas. She’s desperate for a baby, she wants to be a mother, she wants to be pregnant, she wants a baby in her, she can’t wait to have kids, she loves being a stepmother, blah blah fucking blah. However, while she used every press outlet that would listen to tell about her baby wishes, there’s one thing she isn’t going to do: tell you when she’s actually pregnant. Uh…
As she coyly responded to questioning on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno:
“We are not announcing anything right now. We’re not, no.”
Now, I don’t for one second think she IS pregnant, but I wish to hell she’d shut up about it until she is, or until she gets a big enough “baby bump” that the press picks up on it anyway and she can’t really deny it anymore. We get it, you are having fun having sex *giggle giggle* and trying for a baby. Whoopdidoo, Kelly. I like you – please don’t make it so difficult to continue.
Here’s Kelly’s full interview with Jay, if you care:

Hot on the heels of her gorgeous, Pinterest-friendly Tennessee wedding, Kelly Clarkson is ready to get back to business… the business of baby making, that is! She has said before that she’d love to have a baby for Christmas, but apparently the universe didn’t get the message because she’s said it again. Are you listening, world? Kelly Clarkson wants to be knocked up by the time Santa slides down her chimney on December 24… and no, that’s not a euphemism (OR IS IT?).
From Elvis Duran and the Morning Show (via DS):
“I want babies, yep! I do. Everybody keeps saying, ‘What do you want for Christmas?’ And I’m like, ‘I want to be pregnant’.”
Clarkson also spoke about becoming a stepmum to Blackstock’s two children.
“I honestly never ever used to want to have kids because I’m kind of selfish with my career, but going to soccer games with Seth and doing homework with Savannah – I just really love it y’all. It’s so cool. It sounds so cheesy but it’s such a bigger point to life.”
She added: “I really lucked out with the whole kid situation. They’re amazing.”
Well, that’s nice, I suppose. It’s good when kids have parents who actually want to be parents instead of those who accidentally had kids and are just sorta dealing with it. Then again, she does already have two stepkids now… is it seriously that important that you get knocked up in the next two months?

I’m not one for weddings in general, let alone celebrity ones, but even I have to admit that Kelly Clarkson and new husband Brandon Blackstock’s ceremony looked really lovely. The photos were Pinterest perfect and now we even have video of the special day. Like, this shit even got ME emotional, and I’m not easily moved by nonsense like this. The location – the luxury resort Blackberry Farm in the Smoky Mountains in Walland, Tennessee – is absolutely gorgeous. They look so happy and in love! And to top it all off, they used a Patty Griffin song over the video, so I’m basically done.
The clip, directed by Weiss Eubanks (whoever that is), was posted to Kelly’s Twitter page on Tuesday, where she also thanked fans for all their well-wishes. Seriously, girl, congrats on that shit. I think I’m getting soft in my old age (lol).

I’m officially Mrs. Blackstock :) We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!
Her gown is by Temperley and we know that because she tweeted,
Thnx Temperley 4 my beautiful dress! & thank you to my friend @JimVerraros & Maria Elena 4 the beautiful headpiece!
I have to say that honestly I don’t think she’s ever looked better. She looks absolutely beautiful.
It sounds like she’s got another major life event coming up, too…
