Singer Kelly Clarkson, who rose to fame after winning the first season of American Idol, is celebrating her 32nd birthday today.
Since her debut album in 2003, Clarkson has gone platinum numerous times and has won a total of 62 music awards, being nominated 135 times. She married talent manager Brandon Blackstock, stepson of Reba McEntire, in 2013 and in June that year announced that she and Blackstock were expecting their first child.
This past weekend Clarkson celebrated Easter with loved ones in Tennessee, sending out a tweet to announce her happiness.
Happy Easter everybody! We celebrated on the lake today. Loving the sun, family and friends!

Though keeping a low profile in the past few months, Clarkson was spotted a few times this weekend in Nashville.
She first was seen looking very comfortable in black leggings, a tight white maternity top, and tennis shoes. The second ensemble, seen on Sunday when the family dined at a local Cracker Barrel restaurant, consisted of black leggings, flip flips, and a red smock with a large bow design on the front.
It hasn’t been the easiest pregnancy for Clarkson, who is due between now and June. In December, she visited Ellen DeGeneres and spoke about her rough time so far.
“Oh my god, like it is so upsetting when I ask women because they’re like ‘oh you’re going to love this’ and I’m like ‘oh were you sick at first?’ and they’re like ‘no,” she said. “And I want to like hit all of them with my car. I vomit a good dozen times a day its like bad.
“Everybody tells you that you glow and your hair is pretty and your nails are pretty,” she added. “That is total crap. My nails are short, my hair still falls out, it’s not all lush and beautiful, and I have no glow.”
Along with her soon-to-be born baby girl, Clarkson also plays stepmother to Blackstock’s two children from his previous marriage, daughter Savannah and son Seth.
