The 31 year-old American Idol had publically stated her desire to start a family, especially after she and Brandon got married last month in Tennessee. Find out more about their romantic and rustic wedding here. Although her new husband has two children, 6 and 12, from a previous marriage, Kelly had openly spoken of her urgent plans for pregnancy.

"I want babies, like, right off the bat!," she said in a recent interview on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, adding "Well, I'm totally gonna have a girl. My first child will be a girl -  know it in my soul."

Why didn't Kelly invite her own mother to her wedding?

Speaking on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno earlier this month, Kelly made the audience giggle when she revealed ''[We want a baby] now! Practice makes perfect! We're trying, trying, trying...Like rabbits!'' There's no word yet on when the baby will be due or even if it will be a boy or a girl but Kelly and Brandon will probably be expecting a mid- to late-summer 2014 birth if all goes well.

Will She Be Having Twins?

This year, Kelly was involved in a tussle over English author Jane Austen's ring after she bought it at auction but was hit with an outcry after many English people and the Jane Austen House Museum argued that a piece of vital heritage would be lost if the ring was taken to the USA. It seems that although Kelly may have lost something valuable, she gained something even more special in the end. Find out how it all panned out here.

This Christmas will be made all the more special for Kelly now that she knows a little one is on the way, with her first Christmas album, Wrapped In Red, released too. As the festive season has approached, the album has sped up the Billboard 200 chart to reach the No.3 spot with 70,000 sales. As it stands, Kelly is to only American Idol winner to have six studio albums debut among the Billboard top 3.

Wrapped In Red will also be given a push after Kelly's NBC TV slot on the 11th December: don't forget to watch out for this.
