It seems that Kelly Clarkson has a lot to be thankful for this year. Last month, she got married to longtime boyfriend Brandon Blackstock. Now the pair is expecting their first child! Kelly took to twitter to announce her pregnancy.[tweet https://twitter.com/reba/status/402989126229958656]
Grandma Reba is excited to hear the announcement too! Since Kelly married her husband, she became Reba’s step daughter-in-law.
To go along with her new baby news, Kelly also has a brand new holiday album that is in stores now.
The track off Kelly’s upcoming album, Wrapped in Red, is filled with festive horns, bells and back-up singers. On it Clarkson gets a little mushy, letting her sweetie know the holidays are better now that she’s found him, singing, “I was lost before you/ Christmas was cold and gray/Alone to celebrate/ But then one day everything changed/ You’re all I need underneath the tree.”
In an interview with Billboard, Clarkson admitted there’s something freeing about recording a holiday album.
“I always get asked what genre I’m in: ‘Is this country or pop or rock? What are you?’” she said. “And what’s cool about making the Christmas album was, ‘Oh, there are no limitations! We can do whatever we want!’”
Along with the upcoming release, Clarkson will be celebrating the holidays on NBC with an hour-long special called Kelly Clarkson’s (Cautionary) Christmas Tale, airing in December.
