There’s a reason American Idol Season 1 winner and Duets star Kelly Clarkson’s been looking so dang good lately: She’s totally in love with her boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock!

Kelly gushed about the status of her relationship in an interview with People, saying that the fact that they’re both so connected to the music biz (he’s a talent manager and his stepmother is country legend Reba McEntire) makes things easier for them both.

“One of my favorite things is we're both in the business... He gets my job and he gets how busy it can get, and he gets the sacrifices that we both have to make with our jobs,” she explained.

Kelly began dating Brandon late last year and has been notably all smiles ever since the two got together. The reason, she says, is that the two are “super real.”

“[W]hat you see is what you get," she explained. "I think as you get old... you just get less worried about the little stuff that doesn't matter and you focus more on the bigger picture."

Most importantly, the singer openly proclaimed, she’s “ in love" and " just super happy right now."

We’re happy for you, Kelly!
