First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes … well, you know! Kelly Clarkson is pregnant, she has officially confirmed the news that many were expecting to come soon.

Kelly  tweeted the exciting announcement last night (11/19).  Last week, Clarkson appeared on ‘The Tonight Show,’ where she dodged questions about a potential baby on the way from host Jay Leno. “I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five,” she revealed on Nov. 11. “Practice makes perfect! We’re trying, trying, trying … like rabbits!”  Just what we want to hear.

Practice obviously does make perfect. Clarkson and new husband Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together following an intimate wedding ceremony on Hawktober 20th.

Blackstock is the stepson of Reba McEntire. He has two kids, aged 12 and 6 from a previous relationship, and while Clarkson says she loves being a stepmother, she has not been shy about her plans to have a baby of her own.

A due date for the mini country singer-to-be has not yet been revealed. Good luck to Kelly and Brandon from all of us here at 98.1 the Hawk.
