Two divas are set to unite in their family ties, and at least one of them has expressed that she couldn't be more excited.

Country legend Reba McEntire says she is "thrilled to death" to have Kelly Clarkson as her daughter-in-law after she marries talent manager Brandon Blackstock, whose father is Clarkson's manager and McEntire's hubby.

In an interview with Katie Couric airing today, McEntire praises Clarkson's talent and expresses her enthusiasm at welcoming the singer into the clan officially.

"To have my buddy as my daughter-in-law -- I mean, who could ask for more?" the future stepmom said.

McEntire went on to pay tribute to Clarkson's talents, calling the 30-year-old "big-hearted" and "very creative."

Clarkson and Blackstock announced their engagement in December, and one month later the singer told Cosmopolitan that she has "never been so happy."
