Kelly Clarkson Explained Why She Is Changing Her Name: "My New Name More Fully Reflects Who I Am"

And we stan.

We all know THE one and only legendary singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson.

Well over the past couple of years, she's been making some big moves in her life. For starters, the 39-year-old filed for divorce from her husband, Brandon Blackstock, after nearly seven years of marriage.

She's also conquered daytime TV with her acclaimed talk show and slayed her role as America's super lovable judge on The Voice.

And now, her newest change, I guess, is HER NAME.

Yup, this week, Kelly filed a petition with Los Angeles Superior Court to change her name, TODAY reported.

Kelly is changing her legal name to "Kelly Brianne." Brianne is her middle name.

“My new name more fully reflects who I am,” she explained.

IDK WHY, but I'm emotional and happy for her.

People, of course, had some thoughts and reactions:

Sorry but I’m not calling her Kelly Brianne. That name is giving an autumnal IG influencer from North Carolina or a sister wife

Either way, we will be supporting Kelly Brianne.

WHY? Because this woman can sing her fucking face off, makes hits that are so good it clears my skin, and because she's a non-problematic queen.

We welcome you with open arms, Kelly Brianne.
