Well things are certainly moving right along between sometimes country girl Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire’s stepson Brandon Blackstock.

The pair have been dating since late last year and have just taken the next step in their relationship by adding a new family member — a German Shepherd puppy rumored to be named Bear.

“Uh-oh … commitment level,” Clarkson, 30, tells of their new addition.

So far there haven’t been any pictures of the new puppy that I’ve seen (except for a rumored picture here), but like all good parents, I’m sure that will come soon enough.

Unfortunately on Tuesday, Kelly had a bit of a meltdown when one of her other dogs, Joplin, almost died and says on Twitter that Brandon, a pilot, flew in to comfort her.

I had the worst day yesterday because my little baby Joplin, one my dogs, almost died and I was a wreck. He is now at a vet hospital and doing better. Please say a prayer for him. Thank you to all of my fans that came out last night to my Ohio show! Y’all are the best! Thank you for making my night better. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

I had a really bad day yesterday and my boyfriend is a pilot and flew in to surprise me and be with me because I was so sad. He wins Best Boyfriend Award ….hands down. I’m very lucky he loves me so much. Please don’t settle ladies! Great men are out there! Or great ladies depending on what team you bat for!

Awww. Sounds like before long Reba and husband Narvel may soon be real grandparents and not just to a sweet new puppy.
