Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock Get Engaged

December 16, 2012 06:02 AM by Donna W. Martin

We’ve known for a while now that American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson is completely head over hills for boyfriend Brandon Blackstock. And last month when they moved in together and started discussing the possibility of getting married, we weren’t at all surprised. Clarkson even appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show and said she was just waiting for Blackstock “to put a ring on it.” And that he did… Blackstock popped the question and Clarkson said yes. The happy couple is officially engaged!

According to US Weekly, Blackstock popped the question on Friday and Clarkson was overjoyed. “I’m engaged!” she tweeted on Saturday. It was obvious Clarkson couldn’t contain her happiness and wanted to share it with the world. “I wanted ya’ll to know!” she said. “Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.”

Clarkson knew she had found “the one” in Blackstock. “We’re so getting married,” she told Ryan Seacrest in an interview earlier this year. “Once you finally fall in love with someone and you are so comfortable with them, it makes you more comfortable in your skin. It makes you comfortable as an artist. It makes you more confident. I’m completely head over heels for him — he knows that.”

This will be Clarkson’s first trip down the aisle but don’t be surprised if it’s a short and simple ceremony. Clarkson admits she’s not the type to have a huge over-the-top wedding. “Honestly,” she said, “I’ve never been the girl to plan a wedding.” Then she explained that when Blackstock finally asked her that all-important question, “We will totally, probably elope.”

This will be Blackstock’s second marriage and he has two children.

Join us in congratulating Kelly and Brandon on their engagement.

    I just lost my husband of 33 yrs and your song “That which doesn’t kill me makes me stronger” brought me through his last 3 months of a long battle with cancer.
    I pray you and Brandon have a blessed marriage with many years together.

    Thank you for sharing your voice with the World.

    I am truly happy for Kelly and Brandon. true love is such a hard thing to find these days.I have recently found my One, and know exactly what she means by being more confident in my every endeavor.
    So congrats from a guy who has loved her music for years and has made it through the struggle by hearing her words that so beautifully come from her mouth.

    Since when do lesbians need beards? Convenient he’s a talent manager. Have to maintain that wholesome hetero facade.

    I give it 1-2 years, if that. He only wants her cash. She’ll get knocked up (if she’s not already), ballon up again & then he’ll leave… classic relationships in Hollywood/Nashville. And who can blame him – who wants to be married to a fat chick?
