Clarkson took to Twitter to share the news with her fans: “I’m officially Mrs. Blackstock :) We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!”
The ‘Because of You’ singer even attached to her post two photos from her big day, for which she donned a long-sleeved lace gown.
Last year, the performer revealed in one of her interviews what she would wear at her nuptials as “my personality in a dress. A little rock ‘n’ roll. A little tattered. Nothing like a princess thing!”
Up until her December 2012 engagement to Blackstock, 35, who has two children from the previous marriage (a boy, 11, and a girl,17), the pop singer wasn’t sure she’d ever get married, PEOPLE Magazine reports.
“I’ve only had three other boyfriends that I dated, and not really seriously,” Clarkson, 31, said at the time.
However, it seems like things absolutely changed after the blonde met the music manager at a rehearsal for the American Country Music Awards in 2006, as she immediately realized that he could be someone special.
“This guy walks by, making everybody laugh. I said, ‘I’m gonna end up with him. I know it,’ ” the beauty said.
Kelly and her longtime fiance’ previously planned to have an “earthy” outdoor wedding ceremony in the backyard of their Nashville home, but by the summer the planning had become too much and they called it off, opting instead for a low-key event.
“We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, ‘So, we change our minds and we want to elope.’ We just got so overwhelmed by it – all the decisions,”the singer explained to reporters last summer.
“Our whole life is a celebration,” the former American Idol winner added in August. “That’s what we kept laughing about. We don’t need another day where we throw a big party. We would rather have an intimate moment that’s special.”
But that doesn’t mean their lives will be soirée-free, as the “Catch My Breath” says: “We’re going to do that anyway. Our friend is throwing us [a party] because we’re about to wrap up construction at our house. He’s throwing us a huge stock the bar party, so all of the people who were going to be at our wedding will be there.”
What will be couple’s next move? A baby. The 31-year-old has made no secret of the fact that she’s ready to start a family as soon as possible.
“We live together. We have a house together. We have the two kids who live with us. We’re already kind of a family. But I think that it just kind of puts it in place. When you get married, it’s like official. You’re starting a family and we want to have more children, so we’re just excited. I guess that’s the best part, it’s a new kind of chapter in my life.”
