Kelly Clarkson is getting married. The singer, songwriter and very first American Idol winner announced to all of her fans on Twitter that she’s engaged to marry her current boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock.
“I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!!,” Kelly excitedly tweeted on her official Twitter account. “Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)”
Unofficial rumors of an engagement between the two have been swirling for some time now but Kelly shot them down during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I am not. No, everyone thinks we are but we’re not,” Kelly said when Ellen prematurely congratulated the pair on their engagement. “But we are totally going to get married. We love each other.”
Country superstar Reba McEntire, who is Brandon’s step-mom, recently talked about her son’s relationship with Clarkson. “Her and Brandon hooked up and it was just, I think, meant to be,” she said during an interview with CBS’ The Talk. “I’m just tickled to pieces. She’s a very happy camper and he is too.”
Kelly and Brandon have been dating for around 10 months.
