Singer Kelly Clarkson received the “best early Christmas present ever” this week when she revealed that she is pregnant with her first child! But before the big announcement, Kelly sat down with Parade magazine to talk about hubby Brandon Blackstock and her excitement over becoming a mom.
“My life did a 180—in the most awesome way,” Kelly says of meeting and marrying Brandon. “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.’”
But after the star saw her future husband at the 2012 Super Bowl, she knew she had found the one. Though Brandon was much more hesitant to start anything serious since his father is Kelly’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!’”
When the pair tied the knot on October 20, 2013, the “American Idol” alum admits that she “bawled like a baby” as the two exchanged vows. “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!’
Now that the pair are happily married, they are more than ready for the next chapter of their lives, which includes lots and lots of kids!
“I’m totally gonna have a girl,” predicts Kelly of her first child. “I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’”
And there’s one thing in particular that the mom-to-be is most looking forward to as her body changes. “Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!” she says.
Kelly also shares that because she’s not a model, she feels no pressure to drop the baby weight right away. “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.”
We can’t wait to see if your prediction is right Kelly!
