The news of Kelly Clarkson‘sÂ engagement yesterdayÂ thrills me, because I too became engaged yesterday. Â I can’t wait to inundate her with tweets about ourÂ new foundÂ status as soul mates, BFFs, kissing cousins (we share an engagement birthday), etc. Â December 15th, 2012 will always be remembered as kismet for Kelly and I. Â I’ll be playing “A Moment Like This” on repeat all day.
“I’M ENGAGED!!!!!” Kelly announced via Twitter.Â ”I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.” Â Kelly has been dating her fiance, Brandon Blackstock, Reba McEntire‘s stepson, for about a year. Â That’s right, Kelly Clarkson’s future mother-in-law is Reba McEntire. Â I won’t say I’m jealous, but my future mother-in-law isn’t a country super star. Â She can dance her ass off to the best of 70′s funk, though, which is pretty awesome.
Last month, Kelly made an appearance on Ellen, where she talked about theÂ possibilityÂ of marriage.
“We are totally going to get married. We love each other. We are totally going to get married one day.Â I mean he’s got to put a ring on it at some point! But I’ll wait it out.”
She only had to wait a year… I had to wait 5. Â Although I met my guy when I was 22 and I was more serious about Jack Daniels and being semi-employed than I was about him, so I can’t really complain.
Anyway, congratulations Kelly! Â And look for my tweets/fan mail/video chat requests in the very near future. Â I smell a double wedding in the air!
