As you know, American Idol’s original winner, Kelly Clarkson, has gone from Miss Independent to the Mrs. Brandon Blackstock in October 2013, and they're already pregnant! Huzzah!

So who is the man who stole our Kelly's heart with this freaking gorgeous engagement ring? Brandon Blackstock is a talent manager and the son of Kelly's manager, Narvel Blackstock. And Brandon's got lots of country music connections. His dad is married to legendary country singer Reba McEntire, and Brandon is The Voice coach Blake Shelton's manager. So Kelly is now Reba’s stepdaughter-in-law, as convoluted as that sounds.

Kelly and Brandon have been dating since late last year. In October, Kelly told Idol host Ryan Seacrest it was basically love at first sight, at least for her:

“We met years ago when I was working with Rascal Flatts, and he used to tour manage with him. I didn’t really didn’t know he was [my manager's] son and it was kind of weird. I was like ‘dude I gotta know that guy.’ We were just in a room together, and then he came up and said he was from the same hometown as me and I was like, ‘oh we’re so getting married,’ I was so that girl. When he became single, I was on the prowl.”

And she landed the guy she wanted. Kelly always wins in the end!
