Update (November 20, 2013): She may have just announced the news, but excited mom-to-be Kelly Clarkson already has a feeling about what sex her little bundle of joy will be.
“I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’,” she told Parade magazine in an interview that happened before she and Brandon officially confirmed their happy news. Kelly, Junior? We like it.
Original story (November 19, 2013): Kelly Clarkson’s Christmas wish came true early! For weeks now, the American Idol winner hasn’t been able to stop talking about how much she wants to be pregnant. Kelly married husband Brandon Blackstock on October 20, and she says the two have been trying “like rabbits” to get pregnant.
It sounds like all their work has paid off! On November 19, the singer took to Twitter to announce her happy news. “I'm pregnant!!!” she wrote, “Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)”
Just a week ago, Kelly hinted to Jay Leno that she might be pregnant, but at the time the blonde singer maintained she and her hubby were “not announcing anything right now.” Many couples wait until the first trimester of pregnancy before they announce anything, since the risk of losing the baby is lower by that point, though we’re not sure how far along Kelly is at this point.
Kelly is already stepmom to Brandon’s children, Seth and Savannah, from a previous relationship, and she says that experience is one of the main reasons she wants to start having kids. “Now I want like five!” she told Jay Leno.
She’s not there yet, but she’s definitely off to a good start. Congratulations to Kelly and Brandon!
