(LOS ANGELES) -- Kelly Clarkson is pregnant, ABC News has confirmed.
The singer made the announcement on Tuesday via Twitter: "I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever :)"
Since Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock wed on Oct. 20, she hasn't been shy about her desire to have a baby.
In a Nov. 11 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Clarkson joked about how hard she and Blackstock were trying to get pregnant. But when Leno asked her directly if she was expecting, she was coy and said they weren't announcing anything at the moment.
This is the first child for Clarkson and the third for Blackstock. He has two children from a previous marriage, 12-year-old daughter Savannah and 6-year-old son Seth.
