Kelly Clarkson says Brandon Blackstock is her first love.
The 'Heartbeat Song' admits, who married the music manager in October 2013 after two years of dating, admits he is the only person she has ever professed her love to and meant it.
The 32-year-old star, who has eight-month-old daughter River Rose with Brandon, said: "He was the first guy I ...said it [to] - and wanted to say it. I didn't feel like I had to. Because, like, 'Oh, that's what you have to do when you say it.' "
The blonde beauty has no regrets about not opening her heart to her ex-boyfriends even though she thinks it probably hurt their feelings.
She told 'CBS Sunday Morning With Charles Osgood' in an upcoming interview that will air on Sunday (01.03.15): "That's horrible. But it's true. And that's how - what it is."
But Kelly admits she never thought she would find long-lasting love because she has witnessed a lot of divorces, including her own parents' split.
She explained: "I never thought honestly I would get married or fall in 'love', like they say in the movies. You know, I never thought that would happen. And, not so because I didn't think it was true."
