Kelly Clarkson shared some exciting news with her fans over the weekend.

The 30-year-old singer posted on Twitter Saturday that her boyfriend of roughly one year, Brandon Blackstock, popped the question that day. According to People magazine, Clarkson and Blackstock, a Nashville-based talent manager, began dating in late 2011.

“I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night!” she tweeted. “I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever.”

For the curious, Clarkson also shared a photo of her engagement ring, which features a sizable yellow canary diamond in the center and smaller diamonds surrounding it.

It would seem the “Stronger” songstress has been anticipating this day. She told Ellen DeGeneres on “Ellen” last month of her now-fiancé, “we are totally going to get married. We love each other. We are totally going to get married one day. He has, like, two children, and I’m new, but he’s got to put a ring on at some point.”
