Kelly Clarkson is in love.
"I have a new boyfriend!" Clarkson revealed during an interview on March 6, according to Us magazine.
Sources say that the American Idol winner is now dating Brandon Blackstock, a 35-year-old talent manager. Blackstock is country singer Reba McEntire's stepson. His dad, Narvel Blackstock, also manages Clarkson.
Clarkson waited a long time to find her prince charming. She split from her her ex-boyfriend Graham Colton six years ago. But, the 29-year-old singer bounced back after she started dating Blackstock last year.
"Before Brandon, Kelly had a really tough time with love," a source shares. "[Brandon] is just what she needed."

Britney Spears has reportedly hired her namesake Brittany Murphy's ex-fiancé--as her new manager.
The Firm boss Jeff Kwatinetz has taken charge of the troubled pop star's career after pop rival Kelly Clarkson dumped the industry bigwig in June.
Clarkson axed Kwatinetz after her falling out with music mogul Clive Davis went public. The "Breakaway" singer is now represented by pal Reba McEntire's manager/husband Narvel Blackstock.
Meanwhile, Spears rehired cousin Alli Sims as her assistant last week. Sims quit to concentrate on a solo pop career and insiders claim she's helping her relative out until she finds a full-time replacement for sacked sidekick Shannon Funk.
