Kelly Clarkson attends the premiere of NBC's "American Song Contest" at The Lot at Universal Studios Hollywood on March 21, 2022 in Universal City, California.

Meet the newly minted Kelly  Brianne.  Reba’s former daughter in law was granted her name change in a Los Angeles court earlier this week so now, at least in her personal life and affairs, she has the legal name she requested.

Kelly petitioned the court back in February citing the fact that the name change will reflect the woman she is today after her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.  Never fear, professionally she will still be known as Kelly Clarkson.  To learn more just go right here

Changing your name can be confusing and can be a pain even if it is something you want.  Many of you know I divorced my sweet little hubby (long story/big mistake), so dropped his name and took another, but then when we remarried I chose to just stick with my maiden name.  I was born with that name and I will die with it.  Changing your last name is difficult!  But bless her heart I hope the name change will bring her peace joy and blessings!
