Kelly Clarkson's gunning for a girl

Now that she's not only happily married but excitedly expecting, Kelly Clarkson is ready to place her bets on her baby.

"I’m totally gonna have a girl," Clarkson tells Parade magazine in its new issue. "I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’”

You might be skeptical, but it sounds like Clarkson has a sixth sense for such things. The "American Idol" winner adds that she knew from the moment she auditioned she'd come out on top - "not in a cocky way; it was like something bigger than me was at work" - and she also knew that she'd marry Brandon Blackstock, the son of her manager, when they first began dating.

Blackstock was nervous of how his father would react, especially if the relationship didn't go well. Clarkson wasn't as concerned: "I said, ‘So? We’re both adults. And it’s gonna go awesome!’ In my head, I was like, ‘I’m already married to you!’”

She had to wait a while for it to happen, but Clarkson's finally met her match.

“I only had like three boyfriends my whole life before Brandon, and two of them were good, just not a good fit. I only had one real stinker that I wrote [songs about] and made a lot of money off of," she tells Parade. ”I was single for almost seven years. Every Christmas, it was like, ‘Seriously, I’m still pathetically alone? Awesome. I’m still telling people I’m okay with it? I’m not.’”

As we all know now, the couple tied the knot in October, and announced they had a baby on the way about a month later.

Clarkson had one more prediction about her parenting to share with Parade: “I’m gonna rock at being a mom!" she tells the magazine. "My mom was a single mom for a bit of my life, and even when she got remarried she was such a hard worker. You know, we were very poor and she didn’t have a lot. People say money doesn’t solve everything but it solves a whole lot, so it’s nice to have the financial stability to be there, whether I’m able to fly home after shows or take her with me. See how I’m calling her ‘her’? I’m putting it out there!”

    I wanted another girl too. When we found out it was a boy....i, admittedly, was pretty sad. Oh well. I just hope he's normal and doesn't have all kinds of issues....

    You guys really should stop pushing your own self-esteem issues on other people.

    Boy or girl, one thing we can be certain of, is that it will be fat.
