Brandon knew Kelly was “The One” since the first year they started dating.
Brandon actually got down on one knee and proposed to the “Since U Been Gone” singer with a yellow canary diamond ring after they only went out for 10 months. Like Brandon, Kelly had no doubts in her mind that he was her soulmate. As soon as they got engaged, she shared the exciting news to Twitter. “I’M ENGAGED!!!!!,” she wrote in December 2012. “I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)”
Kelly and Brandon were THIS close to eloping.
Kelly previously told People that she wanted to elope with Brandon because all of the wedding planning was stressing her out. “We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, ‘So, we change our minds and we want to elope,'” she said. “We just got so overwhelmed by it — all the decisions.”
Although they planned on having a shotgun wedding, things changed very fast. The couple ended up tying the knot at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. Even though it was a small and private wedding, Kelly gushed on Twitter that it was “the most beautiful place ever” and she’s so happy to be “Mrs. Blackstock.”
Brandon is a very spontaneous guy.
Since they’ve been married, Brandon has shown Kelly exactly how exciting he can be. “To keep it family appropriate, let’s say we’re just a lot more active than other couples,” she previously shared to Redbook. “I’m a person who loves change. He loves spontaneity. Having a set time or place [to have sex] would be boring to us. I had never found someone I was truly passionate about, who I wanted to stay in bed with all day. The fact that I did, well … I was going to latch on and take advantage of that.”
Did it just get hot in here or is it just us!
Brandon assured Kelly that she wasn’t asexual.
Not only were Kelly and her beau having some amazing alone time together but he also made it very clear to her that she wasn’t asexual. “I’m just going to be real: I never felt like, honesty, sexually attracted to anybody before him,” she admitted in a 2017 interview with People. “And I’m not downing my exes. You know, everybody’s different. But there was something about him. I honestly thought I was asexual — I’d never been turned on like that in my whole life. I was like, ‘Oh that’s that feeling … okay!’”
Brandon is Kelly’s biggest fan!
When Kelly was on her Meaning of Life tour, her hubby brought out his guitar and surprised her on stage when she was singing “Piece by Piece.” Apparently, Kelly wrote that emotional song for her father, Stephen Clarkson, who recently passed away, so when Brandon surprised Kelly on stage, she didn’t know how to react.
“That’s my amazing husband,” she told the audience. How sweet!
