It’s been a good couple of months for Kelly Clarkson. Her album “Stronger” is well on its way to selling 1 million copies, she just landed a gig on the ABC singing competition “Duets” and now she’s got love in her life.

During recent interview on a Canadian radio station, the “American Idol” winner confirmed that she’s got a new boyfriend, and makes a case for it being Brandon Blackstock. If this name sounds familiar, it’s because he’s the son of Narvel Blackstock, Clarkson’s manager and the husband to Reba McEntire.

Brandon also manages “The Voice” judge and country superstar Blake Shelton. Hmm … and who did Shelton have mentor his Week 1 singers? That’s right, Clarkson.

Clarkson tells Toronto’s CHFI radio, “I have a new boyfriend. Well, not a new one. … I haven’t dated in a while…He understands my work and how much I work and I understand his stuff.”

The two were most recently seen getting cozy at the InStyle Grammy after party. They also attended the Super Bowl together.

Clarkson previously dated former Evanescence member David Hodges. Blackstock is divorced and has two children.
