Kelly Clarkson's wedding to music exec Brandon Blackstock may not be until October, but she is already settling into blended family life.
"I have a 12-year-old and a 6-year-old now ... after being single for six years," she said. "We all live together and everything. It's so different, but it's perfect."
Clarkson said she already enjoys step-motherhood.
"They're awesome, and I actually really dig the mom thing," she said.
She added that in the time she has spent with the kids and her fiancé, she has recognized a similarity in her parenting style to that of her own mother.
"I'm quick to go, 'I told you not to touch that!'" she said. "We all work really well together, but I'm totally my mom. My mom was a hard mom. I'm probably that mom."
