Good news! We’ve got more celebrity babies on the way in 2014! Newlywed Kelly Clarkson excitedly announced her pregnancy with her husband of just four weeks, talent agent Brandon Blackstock, on Twitter on November 19, 2013. Now that the big news is out, when is the pregnant 31-year-old pop star due?
As it’s typical for couples to wait 10 to 15 weeks before announcing their pregnancy, we’re guessing Kelly’s pregnancy is somewhere along that timeline. A typical pregnancy is 37 to 40 weeks, so our rough estimate would be that Kelly will give birth sometime between April 22 and June 17, 2014. A spring-summer baby? Who’s excited!
On November 27, Kelly showed off a teeny tiny baby belly while out and about in Nashville with her hubby. She wore a sweatshirt with the word "Love" on it, which we think is pretty darn appropriate!
Though this is Kelly’s first child, Brandon has two other children (Savannah, 12, and Seth, 7) from a previous marriage. This is reassuring for Kelly, who think she’s going to be “Panic Mom.” She told Parade, “I have a man who’s already a dad, so that’s helpful. I’m like, ‘You’ll have to calm me down,’ because I’m always gonna think our baby’s sick, or there’s something lodged in the throat and that’s why they’re crying.”
Now that we’ve got that question out of the way, we’re wondering if Kelly’s baby will be a boy or a girl? The former American Idolwinner made this prediction to Parade before even confirming her pregnancy: “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!’”
No matter whether it's a boy or girl, Kelly already has a name picked out! Yep, that's name, as in singular. In an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via People), Kelly said she and Brandon have a unisex name picked out, so it will fit no matter the gender. She then went on to say it's not going to be a hugely unconventional choice. "It’s a random name," she told Ellen. "But it’s not like … ‘Blue Jazz.’ It’s not going to be a weird name."
We can't wait to hear what they picked. Congratulations to Kelly and Brandon!
