Though she apparently delivered the news during an online chat not long ago, Kelly Clarkson has now announced on Twitter that she is, indeed, recording a Christmas album.
The singer, who turned 31 on Wednesday, tweeted , " Today is my 31st birthday! I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life and my career has never been stronger :) Thank you God for such an amazing family, group of friends, and a fan base that is rockin!"
She added, "For my birthday I get to put out a Christmas Album at the end of the year (It's sounding amazing!!), go on tour with @Maroon5 (gonna be killer), and GET MARRIED!! It's a big year people!! Thanks for the birthday wishes everybody! I really appreciate all of them :)"
Kelly also revealed that her fiance Brandon Blackstock was extra sweet to her on her special day. Tweeting a photo of a floral arrangement , she wrote, " I woke up to sunflowers and a red velvet cake that my baby made me :) I'm so in love I'm annoying myself ha! "
