Pop singer Kelly Clarkson was given an early Christmas present on Friday when boyfriend Brandon Blackstock proposed to her.

The former American Idol winner confirmed the happy news on Saturday via her Twitter page; writing, "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 only started dating earlier this year; and Kelly is not only thrilled over her engagement, but she's glad to finally have some companionship over the holidays.

"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," she told Ellen DeGeneres last month.

Kelly also showed off her new ring via her WhoSay account; writing, "Everyone has been asking about my engagement ring, so here it is... It's a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with (jewelry designer) Johnathon Arndt! They did an amazing job!"

"I can't wait to make Brandon's ring with Johnathon as well!" she adds.

Last month while Chatting with DeGeneres Kelly made the proclaimation that she would marry Blackstock, who she's been dating since February.

"We are not [engaged]," she said. "But we are totally going to get married. We love each other. We are totally going to get married one day."

Blackstock, who is the stepson of country singer Reba McEntire, has two children from a previous marriage.

Kelly says the couple will "probably elope".
