After several months of dating (and possibly longer, given that their relationship was first revealed earlier this year), the original “American Idol” winner has now revealed that she is engaged to Brandon Blackstock. For those curious as to how the tow parties met (which cannot always be an easy thing to do when you are a superstar), Blackstock is the son of Kelly’s longtime manager Narvel Blackstock, and is also the stepson of country music superstar Reba McEntire.
Here is the message on Twitter that Clarkson first sent out earlier this week in order to confirm the exciting news:
“I’m engaged! … I wanted y’all to know! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.”
Kelly is in the middle of a rather happy time for herself. She is promoting her new single “Catch My Breath,” has just released her first-ever Greatest Hits album, and with that she is the first star of the long-running talent competition to make it long enough in the music industry to actually have a hits album to release. She has also been able to carry her fame in America overseas, where she is not also a superstar in a number of markets. Her most-recent original album “Stronger” now has a number of Grammy nominations to its name courtesy of some of its hit singles (including the title track).
