A little more than a week after marrying Brandon Blackstock in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee, the American Idol winner shared some frank plans about the couple's future.
"I want babies!" Clarkson said during a radio interview with Valentine in the Morning on Wednesday. "Everybody keeps saying, 'What do you want for Christmas?' And I'm like, 'I want to be pregnant.'"
How does Blackstock feel about his new wife's baby fever? The Nashville-based talent manager is "excited about all the [baby-making] practice," Clarkson said, before adding that she wants to have two children "around the same age." Clarkson already has some practice being a mom: Any little ones they have will join Blackstock's two children from a former marriage.
As for the couple's sudden decision to scrap plans for a big wedding and elope with just Blackstock's children in attendance, Clarkson said, "Everybody was actually very understanding...Nobody was really mad. Everybody was really supportive. It was the perfect thing to do. It was so amazing."
Luckily for their other family and friends, the gorgeous wedding video Clarkson shared on Twitter last week does their wedding day justice. The short and sweet video, set to "Heavenly Day" by Patty Griffin, certainly made us feel like we were there—and we don't even know them! Besides, they can interrupt their family planning and pull a George Lucas by throwing a second wedding celebration.
Whatever they choose to do, Clarkson's children will get to hear some beautiful lullabies. Lucky kids!
