Congratulations are in order for the 'Dark Side' star, who has just welcomed her first baby.
Kelly Clarkson gave birth to her daughter on Saturday 14th June, and the proud parents quickly took to Twitter to announce the arrival and reveal her new baby's VERY cute name.
Kelly and her husband, Brandon Blackstock – who has two children from a previous relationship - have called the new arrival River Rose Blackstock and are both over the moon to welcome their little bundle of joy.
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
Kelly revealed that she was expecting a girl in January, saying at the time, “Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!”
Some of her celebrity pals have taken to Twitter to congratulate the star on the birth.
