Clarkson’s big fat excuse

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson can’t wait to have “a reason to be fat”.

The singer and her husband Brandon Blackstock announced earlier this week that they are expecting their first child.

Having often struggled with her curves, the 31-year-old is looking forward to relaxing her exercise regime and diet.

“Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!” she laughed to Parade magazine.

“I’ve never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain’t nobody expectin’ that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don’t expect a lot.”

Kelly began dating Brandon in 2012 and they tied the knot in Tennessee last month.

She recalled the wedding, admitting she felt very emotional to be marrying the love of her life.

“I bawled like a baby,” she confessed.

“We both wrote our own vows, and it was hard to get through them, but I did it… Brandon was like, ‘The Notebook ain’t got nothin’ on me – come on!’ And he took me out [on the lake] in a rowboat. It was very sweet. The whole thing was perfect.”

In the past Kelly has dated musicians David Hodges and Graham Colton in the past.

Having experienced some heartache meant she could belt out even deeper tracks.

“I only had like three boyfriends my whole life before Brandon, and two of them were good, just not a good fit. I only had one real stinker that I wrote [music about] and made a lot of money off of,” she revealed.
