Kelly Clarkson used Twitter to announce some very happy news — she’s engaged!

Kelly Clarkson’s boyfriend of a year, Brandon Blackstock, a Nashville-based talent manager and Reba McEntire’s stepson, is now her fiancé! Congrats goes out to our favorite American Idol!

“I’M ENGAGED!!!!!” Kelly announced Dec. 15 on Twitter. “I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.”

The Grammy-nominated pop star and her now fiancé met through Clarkson’s manager, Narvel Blackstock, who is married to Reba and conveniently, the father of Brandon.

Kelly met Brandon, a succesful talent manager, years ago, while he was working for Rascal Flatts, but there was just one problem — he was in a relationship. However, that didn’t thwart Kelly’s pursuit.

She told Ryan Seacrest a few months ago on his radio show, “We were just in a room together, and then he came up and said he was from the same hometown as me and I was like, ‘Oh, we’re so getting married’ — I was so that girl.” Clarkson also gushed to Seacrest, “When he became single, I was on the prowl.”

Initially she wanted to take things slow, telling Ryan, “We’re taking it slow, and we’re enjoying each other. I’m from a family of broken marriages, but we will definitely break that trend one day.”

Here is hoping those words stay true — we only wish her the best!

So HollywoodLifers, help us congratulate Kelly on this monumental “moment like this!” Sound off below!
