Well, that didn't take long! Kelly Clarkson, who last week when asked if she was pregnant, told "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno "we are not announcing anything right now," has now made the official announcement via Twitter that she and new hubby Brandon Blackstock are expecting a baby.
I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)— Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) November 19, 2013
When quizzed on the subject of starting a family, Kelly, who was married in October, has made no secret of the fact that she wanted to have a baby sooner rather than later, but when Leno asked point-blank if she was pregnant, she kept mum, other than saying "practice makes perfect." The host even lamented that celebrity moms-to-be will go on his show, then the next week, on the "Ellen Degeneres Show" they'll tell her they're expecting. (Which makes us wonder what Kelly or Leno knew a week ago!)
Kelly is a stepmom to Brandon's two children from his first marriage. Savannah,12, and Seth, 6. Her mother-in law, country supersar Reba McEntire, will be step-grandma to the new baby. Brandon is the son of Reba's husband, Narvel Blackstock.
