When it comes to babies and marriage, Kelly Clarkson is going to be more of a Kerry Washington than an Olivia Wilde.

A little more than a week after marrying Brandon Blackstock in an intimate ceremony in Tennessee, the American Idol winner shared some frank plans about the couple's future.

"I want babies!" Clarkson said during a radio interview with Valentine in the Morning on Wednesday. "Everybody keeps saying, 'What do you want for Christmas?' And I'm like, 'I want to be pregnant.'"

How does Blackstock feel about his new wife's baby fever? The Nashville-based talent manager is "excited about all the [baby-making] practice," Clarkson said, before adding that she wants to have two children "around the same age." Clarkson already has some practice being a mom: Any little ones they have will join Blackstock's two children from a former marriage.

As for the couple's sudden decision to scrap plans for a big wedding and elope with just Blackstock's children in attendance, Clarkson said, "Everybody was actually very understanding...Nobody was really mad. Everybody was really supportive. It was the perfect thing to do. It was so amazing."

Luckily for their other family and friends, the gorgeous wedding video Clarkson shared on Twitter last week does their wedding day justice. The short and sweet video, set to "Heavenly Day" by Patty Griffin, certainly made us feel like we were there—and we don't even know them! Besides, they can interrupt their family planning and pull a George Lucas by throwing a second wedding celebration.

Whatever they choose to do, Clarkson's children will get to hear some beautiful lullabies. Lucky kids!

Can someone pass us a tissue? We've been swooning over every detail of Kelly Clarkson's wedding ever since she announced her engagement to Nashville-based talent manager Brandon Blackstock last December. She's shared everything, from her engagement photos to her sudden plan to elope to her first pictures from married life after her wedding on October 20.

Though we already loved their beautiful wedding portrait from their weekend nuptials at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee, she's really got us dreaming of Southern, fall nuptials with the wedding video she posted to her Twitter page.

The 1:27 piece, set to "Heavenly Day" by Patty Griffin, begins with the gorgeous scenery at the romantic wedding venue, complete with meadows, streams, a covered bridge, and an abundance of rich autumn colors.

It then perfectly captures the romance of their special day, showing an extremely intimate ceremony—just an officiant, a ring bearer, and one attendant, small enough to mirror the elopement they dreamed of—followed by footage of the Temperley London-clad Clarkson and her new husband standing in a stream, rowing, dancing on dock, and gleefully strolling outside the luxury Smoky Mountain hotel. The video closed with their new, husband-and-wife names: Brandon and Kelly Blackstock.

The Tweet Clarkson sent with the video echoed that newlywed happiness.

We think Kelly's "Tie It Up," which she's referenced in every wedding-related Tweet, is such a fun bridal song that any girl will love, regardless of her relationship status.

Thanks for always sharing your joy, Kelly! Congratulations!

Kelly Clarkson Weds Brandon Blackstock in a Gorgeous Temperley London Dress

Leave it to Kelly Clarkson to prove that a celebrity wedding doesn't have to have hundreds of attendees (or even more than a dozen) to be swoon-worthy. The singer eloped with fiancé Brandon Blackstock this weekend after scrapping her elaborate wedding plans when her and Blackstock's professional lives got crazy.

Despite that, Clarkson positively glows in the photos she released on Twitter, wearing a long-sleeved lace wedding dress by Temperley and an ornate silver headpiece from Jim Verraros and Maria Elena. Clarkson's wedding bouquet of sunflowers mirrored the pastoral feel of their venue, Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee, a luxury hotel in the Smoky Mountain foothills (which, happened to be featured as one of Brides' 50 most romantic wedding venues!).

Clarkson's wedding seems to be part of a growing trend of low-key events, like Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd's recent nuptials, and Kerry Washington's secret wedding to Nnamdi Asomugha before that. After all, the only reason most people knew of Clarkson's wedding (if they did at all) was because of a tweet from Renee Burank (whose sister works at Blackberry Farm) stating: "Kelly Clarkson got married at Blackberry Farm today... My sister is the chef at Blackberry Farms... CRAZY!"

Clarkson later followed up with a tweet of her own: I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock :) We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!

Kelly Clarkson has never been shy about her wedding plans. After a princess-worthy engagement shoot and a music video that looked more like a wedding montage, the "Tie it Up" singer is finally going to tie the knot—but only with fiancé Brandon Blackstock and his two children by her side.

The American Idol winner dished to People that she and her hubby-to-be plan to elope (despite reports that she was planning an "earthy" outdoor fall wedding).

"We are so busy that we finally just came to terms the other night and were like, 'So, we change our minds and we want to elope.' We just got so overwhelmed by it - all the decisions," the "Stronger" singer told People. "We sent out a save-the-date to everyone and then it got crazy and all the details were leaking."

In addition to feeling fatigued by all of the minute decision-making, Clarkson explained that she and Blackstock are extremely busy. She's working on a Christmas album, they have two kids starting school, and Blackstock, a music manager, is flying all over the country for his client Blake Shelton.

To inform their closest friends and family of the change in plans the couple sent out a swoon-worthy photo from their engagement shoot with a message that said, "Thank you so much for understanding, but it's just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister." Clarkson even tweeted the shot, in which she's wearing an ultra-glam Marchesa design, for fans to see:

"Our whole life is a celebration," the "Catch My Breath" singer continued. "That's what we kept laughing about. We don't need another day where we throw a big party. Our lives are so in the spotlight all the time. Everything is such a spectacle, we were like, 'We would rather have an intimate moment that's special.' "

We just hope she'll share shots from her "Moment Like This" with the world post-nuptials.
