The singer, 31, and her husband Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together, Clarkson announced Tuesday on Twitter.
“I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever,” she Tweeted.
Amid rumors of a baby on the way, Clarkson hinted at the possibility during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show.
“We are not announcing anything right now! We’re not, no,” she said with a smile. “Practice makes perfect! We’re trying, trying, trying … like rabbits!”
Although it’s her first pregnancy, Clarkson is no stranger to parenthood, having spent ample time with Seth, 6, and Savannah, 12, Blackstock’s children from a previous relationship.
“My kids love her,” Blackstock’s ex-wife Melissa told PEOPLE in October. “I couldn’t ask for a better stepmother for my children.”
