Simply romantic! Kelly Clarkson celebrated three years of marriage with her husband, Brandon Blackstock, on Thursday, October 20, and the Grammy Award-winning singer marked the occasion by sharing an anniversary message about her love.
Clarkson, 34, tweeted a cute photo of the couple’s initials carved into a tree. “We got that young love,” she captioned the shot. “Happy Anniversary @BBlackstock. We remembered this year!” Blackstock acknowledged his wife’s message by retweeting the adorable post.

It’s understandable that Clarkson and her music manager husband, 39, have forgotten past tree carvings. The successful duo juggles busy professions while raising their two kids, daughter River Rose, 2, and son Remington, 6 months. Blackstone also shares two children, Savannah, 15, and Seth, 8, with his ex-wife.
Clarkson, who’s oftentimes been vocal about her father’s absence in her life, has praised her husband for being an adoring parent. “Watching my husband love on his daughter all the time, go to her events and just be there and be present is hard to watch but beautiful to watch,” the “Piece by Piece” singer told Ryan Seacrest during an emotional radio interview back in March.
Parenthood also seems to come naturally to the American Idol alum. Earlier this month, Clarkson told ET that she’s gained confidence since becoming a mother.
“It sounds so cheesy, but I feel way more confident, way more empowered, and way more like I’ve got this,” the singer said of her role as a parent. “You just have so much going on all the time, especially because I’m a working mom — so many moving parts and so much navigation — that I just feel like I can do anything. I feel like the head of the village.”
Clarkson credits waiting to marry in her 30s for her successful marriage. “I think the biggest thing is just getting married later in life,” she recently told People. “You change so much in your twenties. I mean, [my husband] got married at 21 in his first marriage, and they both went, ‘What?!’ It can be very hard to grow in the same way. Your twenties are all about growth, and giant [mistakes].”
