Kelly Clarkson shares engagement news via Twitter
Kelly Clarkson fans are excited about her recent engagement news.
The 30 year-old singer and winner of the first season of American Idol, posted via Twitter Saturday that her boyfriend of a year, Brandon Blackstock, popped the question earlier that day. According to People magazine, Clarkson and Blackstock, a Nashville-based talent manager, began dating in late 2011.
"I'M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y'all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night!" she tweeted. "I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever."
Clarkson also shared a photo of her engagement ring, featuring a sizable yellow canary diamond in the center and smaller diamonds surrounding it.
It would seem the "Stronger" songstress has been anticipating this day. She told Ellen DeGeneres on "Ellen" last month of her now-fiancé, "we are totally going to get married. We love each other. We are totally going to get married one day. He has, like, two children, and I'm new, but he's got to put a ring on at some point."
