Kelly Clarkson calls herself “really highly nonchalant” about things like clothes and wedding planning, and it’s probably because she never thought she’d even get married. For someone with this sort of outlook, she certainly doesn’t mince words when expressing how she feels about fiance Brandon Blackstock, telling People he “is everything I ever wanted in a guy.” Awww!
 
The love story goes back seven years, when the “Stronger” singer first spotted her now-fiance at the rehearsal for the American Country Music Awards. “My friend and I had just gotten out of horrible relationships,” she said. “I was dating skinny jeans and I needed Wranglers.” Brandon was married at the time, but the two reconnected at last year’s Super Bowl, when Brandon had been divorced for a year.

“‘Is this too soon?’” Kelly worried at first. “But it just worked.”

Brandon has given her a renewed sense of adventure, and he inspired her to try something new each month of 2013. First up? Flying lessons! Kelly faced her fears in order to do so, saying, “The first 15 minutes I was like, ‘I’m never doing this again! I had a Vulcan death grip on this joystick-looking thing.’” By the end, though, she said, “I was sold.”

It certainly sounds like she’s sold on the whole deal, including Brandon’s two kids from his former marriage Seth, 6, and Savannah, 11.

“I wasn’t really into kids, but Savannah and Seth are so awesome,” she gushed. “We’re gonna wait a bit, obviously, but we’ll totally have a kid.”

We’re totally into that! What do you think of Kelly’s relationship with Brandon?
