After multiple Twitter teasers, the baby is here. And she's got a beautiful name too.
The 2014 baby invasion continues. This week’s celebrity mother is Kelly Clarkson, who just welcomed a baby girl with husband Brandon Blackstock. The baby girl was named River Rose Clarkson – a name that seems like a perfect fit for the literature-inclined Clarkson. Last year, the star attempted to buy a ring, which once belonged to Jane Austen because she admires the author’s work. The ring was ultimately bought off by the Jane Austen’s House Museum, but the singer’s love of beautiful language seems to be alive and well.
Congratulations to Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock!
Clarkson announced the birth of her first child over Twitter, as you do. According to her message, the little bundle of joy was born on June 12. Clarkson confirmed her pregnancy four weeks after she and Blackstock married in Tennessee last fall. Throughout her pregnancy, she continuously updated fans on her condition, unlike other celebrities, who often opt to share as little as possible of their personal lives online.
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!! :)— Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) June 14, 2014
“I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting!” she said at one point during the pregnancy.
Earlier this month, Clarkson dropped some heavy hints that the baby was due any minute.
“Okay, my baby girl needs to come on out ASAP,” she wrote on June 4. “Mama is tired, swollen and miserable hahaha!”
Congratulations to the happy parents!
