Kelly Clarkson Expecting First Child!
Kelly Clarkson is pregnant!
The singer, who made no secret that she was going to work on achieving a baby bump right after tying the knot with Brandon Blackstock last month, tweeted the happy news this afternoon.
"I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)" she wrote.
And the announcement comes JUST after she revealed that she received some friendly advice from Adele last year! The pop star explained to Us Weekly that Adele told her at the Grammy Awards, “Girl, don’t have a baby ’cause everything else will go on the back burner. I’m living in babyland!”
Amid rumors of a baby on the way, Clarkson hinted at the possibility during a recent appearance on "The Tonight Show".
“We are not announcing anything right now! We’re not, no,” she said with a smile. “Practice makes perfect! We’re trying, trying, trying … like rabbits!”
This will be the third child for Blackstock, who has two kids, Savannah and Seth, from a previous marriage. (And this means that Reba McEntire, who's married to Blackstock's father, has another grandbaby on the way.)
"I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five," she added during her interview with Leno.
Congratulations to the whole family!
What do you think of Adele’s advice to Clarkson to wait to have kids because her career would be put on hold? Does it feed into the whole idea that women can’t have everything? What has your experience been?
