Kelly Clarkson is engaged to her boyfriend of a year, Brandon Blackstock

Kelly Clarkson is engaged to her boyfriend of about a year, Brandon Blackstock! I’ve looked all around, but we don’t have access to any photos of her fiancé, but you can see one here. He’s nice looking. He looks “normal” – as in, he looks like an attractive non-celebrity dude. This is the same guy who she “lost weight for” – as soon as they got together, she went on a diet and she started talking to the tabloids about her weight loss. The past few months, I kept seeing interviews or quotes from Kelly where it seemed like she was actually pressuring Brandon to propose… so I guess it worked!

In late November, Kelly Clarkson told Ellen DeGeneres she planned to marry Brandon Blackstock, and now her dream is coming true!

Clarkson, 30, accepted Blackstock’s proposal Dec. 14. “I’m engaged!” she tweeted the following day. “I wanted y’all to know! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.”

This will be the American Idol winner’s first trip down the aisle. Blackstock, who’s the son of Clarkson’s longtime manager Narvel Blackstock, and the stepson of Reba McEntire, has two children from a previous marriage. The two currently live together in Nashville.

While chatting with DeGeneres last month, the “Catch My Breath” singer joked that her beau would have to “put it a ring at some point.”

“Honestly, I’ve never been the girl to plan a wedding,” she added. “We will totally, probably elope.”

Us Weekly was first to break news of Clarkson’s romance with Blackstock earlier this year.

Well, congrats to Kelly and Brandon. I kind of like her in a general sense. I don’t know much about her other than she seems like a really upbeat, positive person, she’s from Texas (I think?) and I like her song “Stronger”. So, what do you think? Babies for Kelly and Brandon? Will it happen sooner rather than later? I think she’s probably a “babies sooner” kind of person, although her career is going pretty well and she probably doesn’t want to stop touring and being a pop star while she’s still working so steadily. So… we’ll see.

Oh, and Kelly showed off her massive canary yellow diamond too. She posted a photo on Who Say, writing: “It’s a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it. Brandon designed it with Johnathon Arndt! They did an amazing job! I can’t wait to make Brandon’s ring with Johnathon as well!”

    Good for her! I read somewhere that songwriting is really hard for her now because she’s so happy. HAHAHA. I found it funny but I know nothing of songwriting.

  2. tripmom says:

    If she’s happy I’m happy for her. She seems really nice and genuine.

    On a side note, why on earth would someone go to the trouble of “designing” a ring unless it was going to be really unique? I don’t understand these celebrities that “design” a ring, and it ends up looking like something you could walk into any Zales and buy.

  3. SmokeyBlues says:

    Congrats to Kelly! This girl keeps it real like no other. I hope she rocks her curves down the aisle and doesn’t torture herself to appear thin again, because let’s face it she’s not thin. She has a woooonderful woman’s curves and I hope she keeps it real for her wedding.

  4. Samigirl says:

    I love her and I’m so happy for her! And I normally don’t like huge rings but that is gorgeous!

  5. Eileen says:

    Yay! Love her! She has an great head on her shoulders!

  6. assistantrachel says:

    That ring is beautiful!

  7. bc says:

    People may disagree with me but I LOVE that freaking ring! It helps that I love yellow diamonds lol

  8. la chica says:

    I hope he deserves her and that she is not just being the fat girl who is grateful.

  9. spinner says:

    Congrats!! Am very happy for her!

  10. Lulu says:

    Congrats to the happy couple!

    On a side note – I much prefer her a brunette!

  11. Vivian says:

    some bitter remarks here, esp.: that remark about being grateful fat girl; beyond lame. i totalky admire her for loosing weight without over doing it. she looks great and i am happy for her. she’s not had happy relationships in the past. ring is not for me personally but it’s def not the worst celeb rings — I also like the yellow and it’s shape. Lastly, she can still sing and makes good pop without being fake or too much. Wish her the best.

  12. Earth to Kelly says:

    I like Kelly Clarkson but I thought the timing and wording of her announcement tweet was in poor taste, given the mass shootings that occurred that same day. Happiest night of her life, I’m sure, but the announcement could have waited….there were no tweets of sympathy from her account regarding the shooting. Just her engagement. I seen it on my twitter feed after someone retweeted her (I don’t follow her). And I know my initial reaction was off disgust, given the other celebrities I happen to follow who did offer words of sympathy, or noted they would not be tweeting this weekend, feeling it was too trivial in light of the murders…….

  13. Mica says:

    On her Facebook page, she announced her engagement to her fans in excitement and some bitches commented that she should have waited before telling this news because of the Connecticut massacre and how she should have used the money to donate it to the victims’ families instead of buying the ring.
    Those commenters were pathetic.

    • Earth to Kelly says:

      Well donating the ring money is going a little far, but I do feel she could have waited until after the weekend was over to announce her engagement and announced it next week…I get she was excited, but really, it was such a tragic day, everyone I know here in my city is horrified, and while yes we go about our day to day lives it is still poor form to tweet that Friday was the best night of your life.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    I like her. Always have. Congrats to them!

    And agree about her as a brunette – MUCH better!

  15. OhDear says:

    Congrats to her! Also, pretty ring.

  16. truthful says:

    hmmm, her manager’s son and Reba’s stepson, she’s in there now…

    hope she is happy and I love her ring.

  17. dcypher1 says:

    That dress shes wearing in the third pic is hideous.

  18. KelBear says:

    I absolutely love the ring since yellow is my favorite color. But, can’t you get this style ring just about anywhere? It’s weird that he designed this.

    • Masque says:

      In the world of entertainment, “designing” an engagement ring usually consists of picking a setting and a primary stone to go in it. They don’t actally design the setting. A rare exception to that is Brad Pitt. He really does contribute to the design.

  19. LAK says:

    Sorry to dampen everyone’s good spirits but yellow diamonds are mostly mined in conflict regions.

    No certificate from bruges/Belgium can make that go away, plus conflict is still going on in those countries. fuelled by Yellow diamonds.

    Please don’t buy yellow diamonds no matter how tempting or pretty they are.

  20. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to her! I like her, she’s talented and seems like a down to earth, fun girl.
    Not a big fan of yellow stones, but as long as she’s happy with it.

  21. YEP_ITS_HER says:

    Is she not gay any more then?

  22. xoxokaligrl says:

    That is hot. The ring style looks familiar though.

  23. GoodCapon says:

    Ugly ring but whatever. Congrats to the couple!!

  24. jo says:

    she could do so much better know his ex he is a d-ck has kids, no education and is a jr mgr at best

  25. Miss you Enclave24 says:

    I love her and I’m so happy for her. There is nothing more wonderful than feeling like you’re hopeless when it comes to love and then wham, in walks the person of your dreams!

  26. Alison says:

    she looks great with the dark do and bangs…very Mandy Moore!
