Surprise! Kelly Clarkson Is Pregnant

The Twitterverse was buzzing last night over the very happy news that Kelly Clarkson is pregnant! The singer made the announcement herself yesterday, tweeting out to her 9 million fans: "I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited. Best early Christmas present ever :)" That announcement that has since been retweeted nearly 11,000 times—and counting.

"Brandon" is Clarkson's brand new hubby, Brandon Blackstock. The pair wed just last month in a super secret ceremony in Tennessee, officiated by none other than country crooner Blake Shelton.

But if all this baby news seems pretty fast, it's not for Clarkson—she's been wanting kids in a bad way, ever since she met Blackstock.

"I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five," she spilled to Leno just last week on the Tonight Show.

But when it came to Jay's probing questions about her then-rumored pregnancy, Clarkson laughingly dodged them, saying, "We are not announcing anything right now. We're not, no!"

Leno tried all he could to wrangle a pregnancy announcement out of the singer, but it was a no-go.

"I always get the stars that come and go, ‘I'm thinking about having a baby,'" he told Clarkson. "and then the next week they go on Ellen and announce it there. So, I'm asking you, are you pregnant? Remember, you are under oath!"

Clarkson may not have been ready to spill the beans then, but she did admit that the pair had been "trying, trying, trying ... like rabbits!" (Which was maybe just a tad awkward.)

This will be the first kid for Clarkson, but the third for Blackstock, who has two children from a previous marriage: Savannah, 11, and Seth, 7.
