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!

Kelly Clarkson and boyfriend Brandon Blackstock got engaged in December of last year, and while they’ve been too busy to actually get married and are just ~enjoying being engaged~, that hasn’t stopped Kelly from looking ahead to the future… which includes LOTS OF BABIES.
From Access Hollywood:
“We’re getting married soon – like really soon – and I already told him that when we’re past the wedding, I want a baby. I was like, ‘That’s my Christmas present that you can give me’.”
Oooh, so this story is a double hitter – we find out they’re getting married soon, too. Like, before the end of the year soon!
I hope she does get the baby she wants for Christmas because, well, babies can be cute (even though it really grosses me out to think of this guy “giving her a baby”, but that’s just semantics) and she wants one, so why not? Live it up! Maybe it’ll soften the blow of losing that Jane Austen ring.

Over the summer, Kelly Clarkson won a bid for $228,000 for a ring belonging to Jane Austen. This did not please Britain, who wanted to keep the ring in Ms. Austen’s homeland. Ms. Clarkson was like, “Huh? No” or something and Britain was like, “We will find a way, Ms. Clarkson” and then resumed petting a long white fluffy cat on the head.
Well, they did find a way. Here’s the bragging, directly from Jane Austen(‘s House Museum website):
We are pleased to announce that our campaign to raise funds to purchase the gold and turquoise ring, once owned by Jane Austen, has been successful. Our offer to buy the ring from singer Kelly Clarkson has been accepted. …We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated to the appeal.
So really, it wasn’t Kelly Clarkson vs. Jane Austen but more like Kelly Clarkson vs. Britain or more like Kelly Clarkson vs. Jane Austen fanatics in Britain, but it’s more interesting to picture Clarkson and Austen duking it out.
I guess everyone’s happy!
