Superstar Kelly Clarkson surprised her Twitter followers with a happy message on Saturday. The former American Idol winner announced that she just got engaged to Brandon Blackstock.

She tweeted: "I’M ENGAGED!!!!! I wanted y’all to know!! Happiest night of my life last night! I am so lucky and am with the greatest man ever :)"

The couple has been together for a year.

Last month Kelly Clarkson talked about their romance to Ellen DeGeneres on Ellen. Ironically when the comedian congratulated her on getting engaged the singer said: "No, everyone thinks we are. We’re not. We've actually been dating for nine months."

But, she added: "We are totally going to get married. We love each other…I mean, he’s got to put a ring on at some point. But I’ll wait it out."

Fans shouldn't expect the singer to have a big wedding though. She told DeGeneres: "I've never been the girl to plan a wedding. We…will probably elope."
