The singer has been hinting at hoping to be engaged for a while now, but it looks like her boyfriend finally took the step Friday night.
Kelly Clarkson just got engaged, what are her wedding plans?
They haven’t been dating very long, but it looks like Kelly Clarkson and her boyfriend are ready to tie the knot. The singer has been dating Brandon Blackstock, the stepson of fellow singer Reba McEntire, for just nine months. Clarkson posted to her facebook Saturday afternoon.
“I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!!” she said. “Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)”
Within three minutes of the announcement, almost 12,000 of her almost 7 million facebook fans had liked the comment. The engagement itself is not that much of a shock, though. Just a few weeks ago, she had been talking about how she felt they would be married eventually.
“We are totally going to get married,” Clarkson told Ellen back in November. “We love each other. We are totally going to get married one day.”
Clarkson added though that because she knew it was coming at some point, she wasn’t in too much of a hurry.
“I mean, he’s got to put a ring on at some point,” she said. “But I’ll wait it out.”
Clarkson has been acting like someone completely in love with someone, and it looks like Brandstock feels the same.
“Once you finally fall in love with someone and you are so comfortable with them, it makes you more comfortable in your skin,” she said. “It makes you comfortable as an artist and it makes you more confident. I’m completely head over heels for him — he knows that.”
But Clarkson also said no one should expect a big wedding from the couple, at least not if she has anything to do with it.
“Honestly I’ve never been the girl to plan a wedding,” she added. “We will totally, probably elope.”
Because of that comment, it’s more of a shock we aren’t hearing that the two are married instead of engaged. But the wedding will probably happen just as quickly as the engagement did.
