Kelly Clarkson, 33, finally revealed the gender of her forthcoming baby on Oct. 23! She and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, 38, are expecting a bouncing baby boy. Check out the cute photo that the “Stronger” singer posted on Instagram as her announcement!

Kelly broke the news of her pregnancy in a pretty unconventional way — by telling the audience during one of her concerts in Los Angeles on Aug. 19! “I was not planning on announcing this but I’m totally pregnant,” she blurted at the concert. “I didn’t want you to think I was on pills or something! Everything is great. I haven’t vomited yet, that’s a win!” Is Kelly not the coolest ever for telling her fans first like that?
Kelly Clarkson Cancels The Rest Of Her ‘Piece By Piece’ Tour Amid Pregnancy
Despite Kelly’s positive attitude, her pregnancy hasn’t been a total picnic; on Sept. 30, she canceled the rest of her “Piece by Piece” tour in Canada and overseas due to doctor’s orders to rest. “I am truly sorry that I have to cancel the remainder of my tour dates,” she wrote in an official statement on her website. “I was so looking forward to sharing this tour with all my amazing fans in Canada and the UK. Unfortunately my doctor is telling me I have to stay on vocal rest, but I am working hard to get better as fast as possible.” She was so bummed that she Tweeted about it, too:
