Kelly Clarkson is now happily engaged to her boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock , the son of her manager, Narvel Blackstock , and stepson of her pal Reba . But Kelly's friend Blake Shelton says that he deserves all the credit for the love match.
Brandon happens to be Blake's manager, and Blake says he convinced him to pop the question. Blake told Hollyscoop.com that he said to Brandon, "Man, you need to grow up and you figure out that you need to marry this girl."
In fact, Blake says he'd even sing at the wedding if Brandon would only put a ring on it. "I will play for four hours if I have to," Blake says he told Brandon. "'Cause you need to get you head out of your a** and ask that girl to marry you.”
Mission accomplished! Brandon proposed to Kelly on December 14 with a yellow canary diamond.
