8. Bad Omen First Date

In an interview with Cosmo back in 2013, Kelly Clarkson gushed about her then-new romance with Brandon Blackstock. Even though they’re now married with three kids, back in the day, Clarkson was worried things wouldn’t work out because they had what she called “bad omen” on their first date! “We’ve known each other for years, but we didn’t start talking until the Super Bowl last February. And this is the funniest/worst thing ever: One of my superhero idols is Whitney Houston, and the day she died was our first date. I was like, ‘This is a bad omen,'” she joked.

7. Whirlwind Romance

Since Kelly and Brandon had known each other for a long time before they finally started dating, their relationship moved quite fast. They began dating in 2012 and by December 2012 they were engaged. They got married/eloped in October 2013 in a small, private ceremony at Blackberry Farm in Tennessee. The only people in attendance were Kelly, Brandon, and his two children from a previous marriage. It didn’t take long for them to expand their family. They welcomed their first child, River Rose, in June 2014 and a baby boy named Remington Alexander Blackstock in April 2016.
