The 31-year old singer has now excitedly announced her pregnancy after having married Brandon Blackstock, the son of her manager Narvel Blackstock, just last month in Tennessee. The marriage was a quiet affair with just friends and family present.
The tweet read: "I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever."
The information was later confirmed by the singer’s publicist Mika El-Baz. The possible date of arrival was not given however.
Clarkson met Blackstock through her business association with his father and she is stepmother to Brandon’s two children by his first wife. The couple dated for 10 months before announcing their engagement in December 2010.
The singer appeared on the Tonight Show only a week ago (wearing a very desirable red dress by Dolce and Gabbana) when she denied to Jay Leno that she was pregnant. She did state that the couple were certainly trying for a baby; trying like “rabbits” was how she described it. She also stated that she would like to have a large family - as many as five children in fact.
