She was single for six years before her romance with Brandon Blackstock blossomed in 2011.
And it appears being in love is not only good for Kelly Clarkson’s mind, but also her health, with the star showing off a noticeably slimmer figure last week.
Now, Kelly is opening up and love and happiness to Life & Style magazine.
Her chart-topping song is called “Stronger,” but “slimmer” was the buzzword when Kelly Clarkson flaunted her fab new physique at the May 24 premiere of her TV series, Duets.
Now the star opens up to Life & Style about her hot new shape — and new man! “I didn’t lose weight for work. I did it for me!” Kelly tells Life & Style.
But boyfriend Brandon Blackstock, whom Kelly’s been dating since late 2011, has certainly helped the star amp up her exercise and eat more healthfully! “I’ve always fluctuated,” the 30-year-old singer says, “but now I’m in a happy relationship. He gets my life. I’m just more active with him.”
Kelly, who’d been single for six years before Brandon came into her life, admits, “No one wants to be untoned when you’re dating someone.”
And although they share the same trainer, Kelly and Brandon don’t work out together. “We did that once, and I don’t like huffin’ and puffin’ in front of my man and looking all red and gross and sweaty,” Kelly tells Life & Style.
