Is Kelly Clarkson pregnant? A radio station out of Shenandoh Valley, Virginia, seems to think the "Tie It Up" singer is!
On Aug. 20, Kiss 98.3 on their official Twitter account sent out a message that the "American Idol" winner was expecting her first child: "BREAKING: KELLY CLARKSON IS PREGNANT! CONGRATS KELLY!!!" The tweet mostly flew under the radar -- Kiss 98.3 has a mere 1334 followers as of press time -- but the rumors began flying more today when the tweet was picked up by Gossiping Pens. Clarkson announced that she cancelled her elaborate October wedding to Brandon Blackstock and that the couple will instead elope in a private ceremony.
In an statement to People on Wednesday (Aug. 21), Clarkson told the magazine that the couple is too busy to plan and execute a big affair. "We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking," she said. Clarkson also explained that the couple was too busy with her upcoming Christmas record "Wrapped in Red" and Blackstock managing Blake Shelton. The couple is also raising Blackstock's two children, ages 12 and 6.
Though Clarkson blames her and her fiancé's busy schedules for the scrapped wedding plans, is a baby the real reason for the rushed nuptials? It certainly could explain the elopement. Before the canned wedding plans, Clarkson seemed excited about her elaborate wedding. She had been releasing engagement photos on her Twitter account and even released the celebratory country single "Tie It Up," which is themed around weddings and all the difficult planning involved.
News about a possibly Clarkson-Blackstock baby is sure to keep coming. A surprise elopement is just the kind of thing to get the rumors churning.
