Is Miss Independent Kelly Clarkson finally settling down?
She's been with boyfriend Brandon Blackstock for eight months.
Blackstock is the step-son of Clarkson's pal Reba McEntire. So would their union make McEntire her mother-in-law? Well, one thing is for sure. Marrying Blackstock would make Clarkson herself a step-mom. That's because he is the father of two kids.
"I would be a rad step-mom," Clarkson, 30, told E! News in the video above.
But when asked if they plan to marry, she said this: "We're totally probably going to get married. I mean we love each other. But, you know, there's also different things that come into play. He has two children and you want to make sure everybody is cool with the transition."
So, for now, the first-ever "American Idol" winner said she is taking things slow, saying just because she's famous doesn't mean she's going to get married super quick.
Do you think Clarkson and Blackstock should tie the knot?
