Kelly Clarkson can celebrate the end of her pregnancy after giving birth to a baby girl. She and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, welcomed their newborn into the world on June 12, 2014. They announced the arrival on Twitter a little later, sharing the unusual name River Rose.
It has not been an easy pregnancy for the Miss Independent singer. She was ill for the majority of it, and took to Twitter to share her recommendation of eating baked potatoes. Just recently, she spoke out about how unhappy she was, and how she had remained indoors for most of her second and third trimester. She could barely pluck up the courage to go maternity clothes shopping because she hated the way that she looked.
Many pregnant women have a glow and speak about how their nails and hair look amazing, but that was not the case for Clarkson. It was such a shame considering how much she was looking forward to pregnancy and becoming a mother for the first time.
When she married Blackstock, she became a step-mother to his two children Savannah and Seth, but she desperately wanted her own. She hoped that they would have their own child for her 32nd birthday, which is just how it has happened. The Because of You singer turned 32 in April this year, and made a wish that her baby girl would sleep through the night. Hopefully, her first few months with a newborn in the house will be much easier and enjoyable than her pregnancy.
Clarkson has now given birth to her baby girl, and is already over the moon. This is not just due to the end of her pregnancy, but because she was looking forward to getting to hold her daughter in her arms. She previously spoke about wanting a lot of children, but has not mentioned anything yet. There is the chance that the difficult pregnancy put her off the idea.
She will not be the first celebrity mother to think twice about plans for second or third babies. Kim Kardashian recently shared that she wondered whether just having the one baby was enough after also going through a difficult pregnancy. However, husband Kanye West wants at least one more since he desperately wants a boy to continue the West name.
Clarkson is also not the first celebrity to give her daughter an unusual name. Kardashian and West chose North for their daughter, and recently rapper Lil’ Kim opted for the name Royal Reign for her daughter. Gwyneth Paltrow is still remembered for choosing the name Apple for her daughter, while opting for the biblical Moses for her son, both with Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
No other information about her daughter has been shared, such as the weight or time of birth. Fans are still waiting to see a photo of the newborn. The couple tend to be relatively private, so will understandably likely want to keep as much information to themselves as possible. However, Clarkson can finally celebrate the end of her pregnancy after giving birth to her baby girl River Rose.
