Miss Independent has agreed to become Mrs. Blackstock.

Kelly Clarkson announced via Twitter on Saturday that she and her man, Brandon Blackstock, are going to tie the knot.

"I'M ENGAGED!!!!!" she wrote. "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 "American Idol" alumna, 30, started dating Brandon, a Nashville-based talent manager, a year ago, according to Us Weekly. Brandon is the son of Kelly's manager, Narvel Blackstock, who is married to Reba McEntire (which will make Kelly the stepdaughter-in-law to one of Country's Queens. Neat!).

Kelly shared a picture of her new bling via WhoSay and captioned it with: "It's a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with Johnathon Arndt! They did an amazing job! I can't wait to make Brandon's ring with Johnathon as well!"

In November, Kelly told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres that she planned to marry Brandon, but all that was missing was the proposal. It looks like Kelly now has everything she'll need this holiday season.

This will be the first wedding for Kelly and the second for Brandon, who has two children from his previous marriage.

Taking the plunge

"Scrubs" star Donald Faison, 38, walked down the aisle with his longtime love Cacee Cobb, 35, Saturday night in Los Angeles.

The couple became engaged in August 2011, and according to People magazine, they've been planning the wedding ever since.

The pair, who have been together for six years, said "I do" at the home of Donald's "Scrubs" co-star Zach Braff under a tent with white, twinkling lights. A gospel choir sang during the 20-minute ceremony that E! News reports was filled with laughter.

Cacee is best known as Jessica Simpson's best friend and former personal assistant. Jessica served as a bridesmaid that night, but she wasn't the only famous face at the nuptials. Zach was in the wedding party, natch, and singers Joshua Radin and Ashlee Simpson both attended.

According to E!, Jessica showed off her growing baby bump in the tight-fitting bridesmaid dress.

After Zach walked with Jessica down the aisle for the ceremony, he posted several photos of the happy married couple on Twitter.

This is Cacee's first wedding and the second for Donald, who has three children with his previous wife, Lisa Askey, and a son from a previous relationship.
