Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Kelly Clarkson’s Best Christmas Ever: Marriage, Baby, and a New Holiday Album

kelly-clarkson

“My life did a 180—in the most awesome way.” That’s how singer Kelly Clarkson, 31, describes how husband Brandon Blackstock has changed her world. They started dating after seeing each other at the 2012 Super Bowl, and she married the divorced father of two on October 20th. And just this week, Clarkson revealed that she and Blackstock are expecting their first child together.

Via Parade.com:

On the details of her wedding, where she opted to go barefoot beneath her lace Temperley Bridal gown:
“I bawled like a baby. We both wrote our own vows, and it was hard to get through them, but I did it. … Brandon was like, ‘The Notebook ain’t got nothin’ on me—come on!’ And he took me out [on the lake] in a rowboat. It was very sweet. The whole thing was perfect.”

On her life prior to dating Blackstock in 2012:
“I was single for almost seven years. Every Christmas, it was like, ‘Seriously, I’m still pathetically alone? Awesome. I’m still telling people I’m okay with it? I’m not.’”

On forgetting the Mr. Know-It-All who came before she found Mr. Right:
“I only had like three boyfriends my whole life before Brandon, and two of them were good, just not a good fit. I only had one real stinker that I wrote [music about] and made a lot of money off of.”

On Blackstock’s initial worries about dating her, since his father, Narvel, is Clarkson’s manager:
“He was like, ‘My dad’s gonna kill me if this doesn’t go well.’ I said, ‘So? We’re both adults. And it’s gonna go awesome!’ In my head, I was like, ‘I’m already married to you!”

On how she knew she would be successful on American Idol in 2002:
“I came home after the very first Idol audition and was like, ‘I’m totally gonna win this.’ Not in a cocky way; it was like something bigger than me was at work.”

On her certainty that she’ll soon be a mom:
“My eggs aren’t getting any younger, so we’ve already started trying. I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’”

On why she’s looking forward to getting pregnant:
“Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!”

On how she figures she’ll be immune to pressure to rapidly drop the baby weight:
“I’ve never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain’t nobody expectin’ that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don’t expect a lot.”

Kelly Clarkson’s new Christmas album, Wrapped in Red, features both classics and winning originals co-written by Clarkson. And while she confirms to Parade that she turned down an offer to return to Idol as a season 13 judge (she was on tour with Maroon 5 during the show’s summer auditions), she’s finishing up two albums, one “very soulful” country and one pop.
