I know it looks like costume jewelry, but that’s a real diamond surrounded by diamonds adorning Kelly Clarkson’s finger. On Saturday, she went on Twitter and announced plans to tie the knot with Brandon Blackstock. She wrote, “I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever:) Everyone has been asking about my engagement ring so here it is. It’s a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with Johnathan Arndt.”
Kelly had been dating Brandon since February but they’ve known each other for years. He’s Reba McEntire’s stepson and the son of Kelly’s manager, Narvel Blackstock. Brandon is also a talent agent. Blake Shelton is one of his clients. Clarkson has given credit to Brandon for inspiring her recent weight loss but also for “ruining her creativity” because she can’t come up with a new breakup song.
