Kelly Clarkson and hubby Brandon Blackstock have welcomed a little baby girl, River Rose Blackstock, into their lives on Thursday June 12th.
She announced the happy news via Twitter today, July 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!! :)”
And the name, although not overly common is not as weird as some celebs pick out. Clarkson told Ellen Degeneres back in early December 2013 that she already had her name picked out for her future son or daughter and that it was the same name whether it be a girl or boy and swore that no one would be able to guess it.
“It’s like a random name,” she said. “It’s not like some weird famous person that’s gonna be like, Blue Jazz. It’s not gonna be like weird.”
2013 was a big year for the American Idol alum, singing at the Presidential Inauguration, winning a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album “Stronger,” traveled to Peru as the free trade ambassador for Green Mountain Coffee, stood up to Clive Davis when he wrote unflattering, and according to Clarkson untrue comments about her, co-headlined a tour with Maroon 5, released a hugely successful Christmas album and TV special, married Brandon Blackstock and announced that they were expecting their first child together.
Phew! That was exhausting just writing it all.
Looks like 2014 is going to be just as big a year as the last!
Kelly Clarkson and hubby Brandon Blackstock have welcomed a little baby girl and the name is just adorable.
