Kelly Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock have welcomed their first child together, a daughter named River Rose.
Kelly Clarkson has given birth to her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock. Clarkson and Blackstock's baby girl was born on Saturday 14th June. They have decided to name her River Rose Blackstock and Clarkson shared their exciting news via Twitter.
Kelly Clarkson announced the birth of her daughter on Twitter.
Clarkson wrote "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!"
Clarkson announced she was expecting last November, a mere month after she and Blackstock had tied the knot. Clarkson informed her fans, once again via Twitter, writing "I'm pregnant! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas ever." The couple began dating in 2012 and married in October of last year.

It seems having children had been on Clarkson's mind for some time before her marriage. In October she told Us Weekly, mere weeks before she wed Blackstock, "More than anything, next I want a baby. Lots of them! My record label is freaking out because all I can talk about now are babies. We're really excited and want to get our family started." She added "I'm 31 and we'd like to do it the natural way. My eggs aren't getting any younger! So we're really excited."
River Rose is Clarkson's first child and Blackstock's third. The talent scout has two children, Savannah and Seth (aged 11 and 7), from his previous marriage.
Congratulations to the couple of the birth of their daughter!
