The singer and her husband Brandon Blackstock have been together for about 7 years. They have two children – a daughter River Rose, who turns 6 today, and a son, Remington, who is 4. According to documents available to People magazine, Kelly has requested joint custody for them. Brandon has two children from a previous marriage – a son of 13 and a daughter of 18.
Kelly Clarkson and music manager Brendan Blackstock met at a rehearsal at the Country Academy in 2006. They got engaged in December 2012, and their wedding is in October 2013.
During the isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, the family had separated on the couple’s ranch in Montana.
“It’s a really beautiful ranch and it’s a nice getaway for our family. It’s something Brandon and I have dreamed of since we were kids. We’d call it home.”, says the singer in one of the episodes of “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.
In April of this year, she had put the family home in Los Angeles up for sale for $ 10 million, but has now removed the offer. In general, the singer’s family lives there permanently after moving from Tennessee to Los Angeles so that Kelly can film her show.
Kelly and Brandon are also known for the family’s fun Christmas cards they made for the big holiday. In addition, in previous appearances, Clarkson had commented that the moment she met Brandon, she was not looking for a friend, but a lover, and that she did not feel sexually attracted to any other man in her life except him. Therefore, the reasons why the star decided to file for divorce remain a mystery.
