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.
