Singer Kelly Clarkson has married her fiance Brandon Blackstock in a private ceremony in Tennessee.

The “Since U Been Gone” hitmaker and Blackstock wed on Sunday at Blackberry Farm in Walland.

The news broke hours later when the sister of a chef at Blackberry Farm alerted her Twitter followers to the happy news, writing, “Kelly Clarkson got married at Blackberry Farm today… My sister is a chef at Blackberry Farms… CRAZY!”

The couple became engaged in December and initially wanted a large wedding, but opted for a smaller affair.

She told, “We had a wedding planned, like a huge one – and we still have a wedding planned, but we’re not doing the big huge one. We’re just gonna (sic) go off with the kids and go get married and it’s just gonna be literally, seriously small.”

This is the first marriage for Clarkson and second for Blackstock, who has two children.

Clarkson has yet to confirm the nuptials took place but revealed earlier this month that she would be married within weeks.
