Kelly Clarkson, 31, is walking down the aisle very soon. Various reports claim that the "American Idol" alum obtained a marriage license with her fiance Brandon Blackstock on Tuesday, October 15 at a clerk house in Sumner County, Tennessee.
Rumor has it, the "Tie It Up" singer and her music manager beau appeared in person to obtain the document. They signed it under their full names, Kelly Brielle Clarkson and Narvel Brandon Blackstock. The license is good for 30 days from the date of issue.
The couple got engaged in December 2012. Brandon proposed with a yellow canary diamond ring that he designed with Johnathon Arndt. Brandon is the son of Clarkson's manager, Narvel Blackstock, who married to country music icon Reba McEntire.
They initially planned a big "earthy" wedding that included 200 guests, sunflowers and yellow roses. They even confirmed earlier this year that Blake Shelton, who is managed by Brandon, would perform and officiate the ceremony. But they eventually scrapped the plan.
"I'm so over it," the bride-to-be told Ryan Seacrest this summer. "It's so overwhelming. We're just doing a lot. Touring, and the wedding, and the Christmas album...so I'm over the wedding part." She later tweeted, "We are eloping for one reason only. We both want an intimate ceremony."
When they finally made their decision for a more low-key wedding, the couple "sent out an engagement photo to everyone and said, 'Thank you so much for understanding, but it's just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister.' "
Her plan after the nuptials would be having a baby. "I want babies, like, right off the bat!" she said during an interview for "Elvis Duran and the Morning Show" recently. "I'm totally gonna have a girl. My first child will be a girl -- I know it in my soul."
Brandon himself is already a father to two children from a previous relationship. Of what type of mom she was, Clarkson said she's strict but caring. "I'm quick to go, 'I told you not to touch that!' " she once said. "We all work really well together, but I'm totally my mom. My mom was a hard mom. I'm probably that mom."
