A new Miss Independent is here!
American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, 32, and husband Brandon Blackstock have welcomed their first child, a little Gemini gem born on Thursday.
Proud mama K tweeted the news on Saturday, June 14: “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!! :)”
That’s right where they belong! Brandon retweeted Kelly’s message this morning. They must be so excited — and we love the name River Rose.
Kelly knew she was having a girl, even before she got the official word. She said she was "manifesting it" back in November, even though the gender wasn’t confirmed until January. When you know, you know!
Kelly and Brandon were married in Tennessee back in October, so both of their worlds have completely changed in the past year. This little miss is their first joint production, but Brandon has two children from his previous relationship, a son named Seth and a daughter named Savannah.
Congrats to the growing family! We can’t wait to see the first pics of the new baby (and to see if she does grow up to be a gymnast, as her mom predicted).
