Summertime is here! It’s time for days at the beach and for babies to be born! 🙂
The same is true for Kelly Clarkson & her husband Brandon Blackstock!
Kelly Clarkson has given birth to a baby girl and just announced the news this morning on Facebook & Twitter!!!
I think the name River will be quite the name for a rockstar just like her mom! She could go by River Rose OR River Blackstone! Either one with give her street cred! 😉
Also…I quite respect Kelly for giving us the news about a day and a half later…it shows that she enjoyed the birth of her first child with her family!
This may be Kelly’s first child, although Brandon has two kids: Seth & Savannah from his previous marriage! So it looks like a healthy, happy family of 5.

Miss Clarkson got married to Brandon on Sunday, October 20th, 2013 at Blackberry Farms in Walland, Tennessee! There’s no place to get married like the Great Smoky Mountains!
Check out their adorable wedding video here:
And her wedding dress was straight-up DIVINE!
Brandon & Kelly announced the news of her pregnancy in November when Kelly wrote to fans: “I’m pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever!” 😀
Now let’s go through the interesting family tree that Kelly joined…
Kelly Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock…
Who is the son of her manager Narvel Blackstock…
Who is married to Reba McEntire…
So that makes Kelly Clarkson’s in-laws her manager & her childhood idol!
Kelly gave a public opinion about kids long before her pregnancy when she said: “I honestly never ever used to want to want kids because I’m kind of selfish with my career, but I’m going to soccer games with Seth and doing homework with Savannah — I just really love it y’all. It’s so cool. It sounds so cheesy but it’s such a bigger point to life. I really lucked out with the whole kid situation. They’re amazing.” 😀
And I’m sure River has the sweetest lullabies to look forward to…like “Breakaway”:
I’m so happy for Kelly and Brandon & I wish baby River Rose the best!!!
