The 'My Life Would Suck Without You' announced her exciting baby news via Twitter on Tuesday evening (19 November), just a few weeks after marrying talent manager boyfriend Brandon Blackstock, who has two children from a previous relationship.
A clearly thrilled Kelly tweeted: "I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)."
Kelly, 31, has made no secret of her desire to start a family in recent interviews, even going so far as to say all she wanted for Christmas was a pregnancy. Santa certainly delivered, didn't he?!
Rumours that Kelly was expecting her first child surfaced following her appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last week. When the host asked her if she was pregnant she coyly replied: "We're not announcing anything tonight."
Kelly has been inundated with messages of congratulations from fans and famous friends including Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott. Kelly replied to the latter: "I can't believe it?! It's so crazy. I'm making a person!"
During an appearance on US radio show Valentine In The Morning earlier this month, Kelly had said: "I want babies! Everybody keeps saying, 'What do you want by Christmas?' I keep saying, 'I want to be pregnant!' I never used to really want kids as I'm kind of selfish with my career but going to soccer games, doing the homework [with my stepchildren], I just love it. It sounds so cheesy... I'd like two more – I've already told Brandon! I don't care if it's a boy or girl. I don't just want to have one as they'd be alone. I want two."
She also joked: "[Brandon] is excited about all the practice!"
Kelly added on The Tonight Show later on: "Brandon has two kids and they're so great. I never wanted kids before but now I want five."
Congrats to Kelly and Brandon!
