Singer Kelly Clarkson's holiday dreams have come true - she is spending Thanksgiving and Christmas with a proper boyfriend for the first time.

The Since U Been Gone hitmaker has always hoped she'd get to experience real love one day, and she couldn't wait for the holidays to come so she could spend some quality time with boyfriend Brandon Blackstock and his kids.

She says, "You know what - and this is going to sound like I'm making a joke, but it is so not. It is serious. I am not alone for the first time for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I am very happy.

"I've been praying for so long and he's so great."
