Exciting time for Kelly Clarkson!

The 31-year-old Grammy award-winning singer and first-ever American Idol winner is expecting her first child with new hubby Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly announced the news earlier today (Tuesday, November 19) on Twitter.

“I’m pregnant!!!" she tweeted. "Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever."

This news doesn't come as much of a surprise, actually. As stepmom to Brandon's two kids (Savannah, 12, and Seth, 6), Kelly recently confessed, "I really dig the mom thing." And, last week, she told Jay Leno that  she and Brandon were trying to conceive — "trying, trying, trying . . . like rabbits!”

Kelly and Brandon were married just a little under a month ago. So happy for them!
