Singer Kelly Clarkson announced on Tuesday that she is expecting a child with her new husband, Brandon Blackstock. Clarkson took to Twitter to announce the good news:

Clarkson, the first contestant to win the Fox singing competition “American Idol,” married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in October.

The Texas-born singer is one of the most successful winners of the show, having crossed over from country to pop music with hits such as “Since U Been Gone” and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).”

Clarkson is the stepmother to Blackstock’s two children from a prior marriage.

Clarkson released her first Christmas album, “Wrapped in Red,” on October 29.
