It really must be love between Kelly Clarkson and her boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock.

According to People, the happy couple has taken the next step together and adopted a German Shepherd puppy!

“Uh-oh… commitment level,” she joked to the mag. “He’s adorable.”

A self-professed animal lover, Kelly has had as many as 50 pets! Last year, the superstar revealed that she had 30 dogs, 14 horses, and a number of other animals on her Texas ranch, which is now up for sale. Two of her dogs, a Maltese named Security and a Poodle named Joplin, head out on the road with her.

It’s clear Kelly loves her animals, but she’s also all-smiles when it comes to her budding romance with Brandon. The singer recently opened up about their relationship, saying that she’s "just super happy right now."
