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…

Kelly Clarkson and boyfriend Brandon Blackstock have been engaged for a while now, but with their crazy busy schedules, they hadn’t planned a wedding. Well, before Kelly gets her Christmas babies (fingers crossed!), they’ve got their marriage certificate and they’re finally ready to walk down the aisle.
From E! Online:
The singer and fiancé Brandon Blackstock obtained a marriage license on Tuesday, E! News has exclusively learned.
As required, the couple appeared in person to obtain the necessary document, signing their full names, Kelly Brianne Clarkson and Narvel Brandon Blackstock.
The document, which also lists their parents’ names, is good for 30 days from the date of issue, so…
Clarkson’s big day is happening soon—though it won’t be nearly as big as she and her fiancé, who has two children from a previous marriage first envisioned.
“OK, this is why it’s confusing,” she recently told E! News, clarifying why some have suspected that she and Blackstock were already hitched. “I’m not married yet, because we had a wedding planned, like a huge one—and we still have a wedding planned, but we’re not doing the big huge one.”
Hurrah! Happy wedding times to all!
