Though she apparently delivered the news during an online chat not long ago, Kelly Clarkson has now announced on Twitter that she is, indeed, recording a Christmas album.
The singer, who turned 31 on Wednesday, tweeted, "Today is my 31st birthday! I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life and my career has never been stronger :) Thank you God for such an amazing family, group of friends, and a fan base that is rockin!"
She added, "For my birthday I get to put out a Christmas Album at the end of the year (It's sounding amazing!!), go on tour with @Maroon5 (gonna be killer), and GET MARRIED!! It's a big year people!! Thanks for the birthday wishes everybody! I really appreciate all of them :)"
Kelly also revealed that her fiance Brandon Blackstock was extra sweet to her on her special day. Tweeting a photo of a floral arrangement, she wrote, "I woke up to sunflowers and a red velvet cake that my baby made me :) I'm so in love I'm annoying myself ha!"
