Kelly Clarkson found the love of her life, and is busy planning a wedding. But in the process, she has gained a whole new family.
It looks like the singer wouldn’t have it any other way.
â¨"I have a 12-year-old and a 6-year-old now," Clarkson told Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday, "after being single for six years.”
Although the wedding isn’t due for months, Clarkson and her fiancé, Brandon Blackstock, decided to become a family as soon as possible.
"We all live together and everything," she said, according to People. "It's so different, but it's perfect. They're awesome, and I actually really dig the mom thing."
The American Idol winner is enjoying stepmotherhood, but that doesn’t mean she is a pushover, and is reminding herself of a mom she knows well.
â¨"I'm quick to go, 'I told you not to touch that!'" Clarkson told Seacrest. "We all work really well together, but I'm totally my mom. My mom was a hard mom. I'm probably that mom."
The feeling between Clarkson and her soon-to-be stepkids appears to be mutual.

Blackstock and Clarkson are still very much in love, and working on their day-to-day life together, saying their relationship is "not a try-hard situation."
"It's just easy," she said. "It's work — after a year-and-a-half that puppy phase [is over] and reality starts to set in — but it's fun work. We're very similar. It's easy."â¨
â¨"I'm so over it. It's so overwhelming," she admitted to Seacrest. "We're just doing a lot: touring and the wedding and the Christmas album, so I'm over the wedding part."â¨
The singer is out on her North American tour, which wraps up Oct. 6 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Her Christmas album is due out Oct. 29.
