Congratulations are in order for Kelly Clarkson…
The original “American Idol” announced the news on Twitter and Facebook yesterday: “I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)”
Everyone pretty much assumed a baby was on the way following a comment she made to Jay Leno recently: “We’re trying, trying, trying…like rabbits! I want a little baby with little feet and I just want to bite them.”
Just last month the 31-year-old singer married Brandon Blackstock in a small, intimate ceremony in Walland, Tennessee. Brandon has two children from a previous marriage.
It was actually being stepmom to his children that made her want to grow their family. “They’re so great,” said Kelly. “I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five.”
