Kelly Clarkson’s Maid of Honor Ashley Donovan — Who is She?
We are so excited for Kelly Clarkson's upcoming wedding to beau Brandon Blackstock in less than 2 months — but for now, the big news is that the original Idol just revealed who her Maid of Honor will be: BFF Ashley Donovan!
Childhood pal Ashley Donovan will be by Kelly's side on October 30 when the "Tie It Up" singer ties the knot in Nashville. To reveal who scored the big role in the ceremony, Kelly tweeted a picture of herself with Ashley, writing, "Introducing my official maid of honor!"
The two ladies grew up together in Burleson (that's Texas, y'all) and worked at their local movie theater. Right after Kelly won American Idol, the two moved in together in Los Angeles.
"If you want to know the truth, what we really like to do is just hang around the apartment, staying up late and talking and watching reruns of Kelly's favorite shows, Friends and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," Ashley once told Texas Monthly. "Don't ask me why, but she loves Dr. Quinn." Get us a reality show of these girls living together, stat!
The couple is planning a small wedding in Nashville when Kelly wraps up her tour with Maroon 5.
