The original 'American Idol' is a mom! Get the lowdown on Kelly Clarkson's baby name and more!
Congratulations to the original American Idol! Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock had a baby girl on June 12!
Clarkson announced the news, as well as the lil' lady's name, over Twitter and couldn't be happier, writing, "Our baby girl River Rose Blackstock arrived on June 12th! Thank you everyone for all of your well wishes! Brandon and I are on cloud 9!! :)"
How cute are these two?!
Clarkson wed Blackstock in October 2013, eloping privately at Blackberry Farms in Walland, Tennessee after calling off a huge wedding that was originally to be officiated by Blake Shelton. The "Tie It Up" singer announced her pregnancy in November; in January she revealed that they were expecting their bundle of joy to be a girl. River Rose joins Clarkson's stepkids, Blackstock's son and daughter from his previous marriage.
Poor Kel had a pretty rough pregnancy, revealing throughout that she'd been vomiting a whole lot and simply not feeling great for most of the duration -- which had to have been rough, because for the first few months, she was busy promoting her amazing Christmas album, Wrapped In Red. She even admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that she'd thrown up just a few minutes before getting onstage for her interview! And to think she still wants one more, right?!
We're glad Clarkson is a mom (you know she's going to be adorable) and we're glad she'll finally be feeling better! Congratulations to the happy family!
