It’s official… Kelly Clarkson has the cutest daughter ever!

The original American Idol took to Twitter yesterday to introduce her one month old daughter, River Rose, to the world.

In the tweet, which has since been favourited over 13,000 times, Clarkson revealed that River Rose weighed 6lbs 6oz and measured 18 inches. The proud mum also described her baby girl as “the greatest thing on the planet” and attached the adorable picture above.

River Rose is Clarkson’s first biological child, but the ‘Since U Been Gone’ singer is also a proud step-mum to her husband Brandon Blackstock’s two children from a previous marriage.

Blackstock, whose own step-mum is country legend Reba McIntyre, married Clarkson in October 2013 after a ten month engagement. The newlyweds took to social media just one month later to announce the pregnancy.

The new parents began dating in 2012, despite having known each other for around six years prior. The two originally met through family ties, as Blackstock’s father in Clarkson’s manager.

Back in May 2012, Clarkson revealed to The Daily Mai that she had “known [Brandon] for six years, but he was married. Then, suddenly, there he was at the Super Bowl and he was single!”. Six months later, the couple became engaged.


There’s no doubting that River Rose will enjoy some of the most tuneful lullabies on Earth night after night.

After winning the first ever season of American Idol in 2002, River’s mummy has gone on to sell over 20 million albums worldwide. Clarkson was also announced as the 14th-best-selling artist of the 2000s by Billboard magazine.
