Singer Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock have just had their first child – a baby girl they’re naming River Rose. How pretty is that? She was born on June 12th and, according to Kelly’s Twitter feed, she and her husband are ‘on Cloud 9’.

Just a week before she gave birth, Kelly had tweeted she was “tired, swollen and miserable” and her baby girl needed to “come out now”. Luckily for her, she didn’t end up being overdue.

In fact, if we’re calculating correctly, River Rose was actually a few days early, although Kelly waited a couple of days before officially making the announcement of her birth.

Congratulations to Kelly Clarkson and hubby Brandon. She’s always been one of my favorite singers as not only does she have an amazing voice, but she’s also a supporter of gay rights and women’s rights, and has been outspoken about both issues in the past.


All I can say, from what I know of both Kelly and Brandon, I’m guessing they’re going to be some pretty stellar parents, so River Rose Blackstock is going to be one lucky little girl.
