Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this, indeed!
Kelly Clarkson caused the entire Internet to explode in a collective “Awww!” today when she tweeted the first photo of her newborn daughter, River Rose Blackstock. Clarkson first tweeted about little River’s arrival last week, with this tweet:
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!! 🙂

After tweeting about the baby’s arrival, Kelly was seemingly MIA from the Internet until today when she returned in heart exploding fashion, tweeting out the first photo of her new baby with husband Brandon Blackstock.
With those genes and a name like River Rose, how long until this cutie is churning out her own country albums? And more importantly, how long ’til Carrie Underwood has a baby to compete against Baby Blackstock in American Idol 2032?
Until then, here’s Mama Kelly and Grandma Reba with their hit “Because of You”:
Kelly Clarkson was the winner of Season 1 of American Idol and has had an incredibly successful career in the Top 40 and Country music genres. Brandon Blackstock is a music manager (Blake Shelton) and stepson to the Queen of Country Music, Reba McEntire. The two began dating and, in true whirlwind fashion, were engaged in less than one year and married ten months later. Aside from River, Brandon has two children from a previous marriage, Savannah and Seth, whom Kelly has embraced as her own.
