American Idol star, Kelly Clarkson is a proud new momma, and she could not wait to share a photo of her newborn with her fans. On Friday, Kelly Clarkson revealed the first photo of her baby girl on Twitter. The picture shows River Rose Blackstock sleeping in her vintage-looking carriage covered with a little blanket and wearing a headband.
Clarkson delivered River Rose on June 12. This is her first child. Her husband Brandon Blackstock has two kids from a previous relationship. Kelly and Brandon tied the knot last year in October. Just as she did with the photo of her newborn, she announced the news of her marriage on Twitter. She expressed her happiness by saying she was officially Mrs. Blackstock. The singer also shared beautiful pictures of her big day with her fans, and took a moment to thank her designer, Temperley London, for the beautiful wedding dress.
Clarkson did not waste any time starting a family right after getting married. The singer revealed the news that a baby was on the way in November of last year. Once again, she gave the news on Twitter, saying it was the best early Christmas present. However, pregnancy was not an easy ride for the singer. During her first trimester, she appeared on the Ellen Show, where she revealed, in a comic and descriptive way, the awful symptoms she was facing due to morning sickness. She was not shy at all, saying she could not hold anything down. She went on to say she envied all those women who had never felt sick with a pregnancy. The funny and hormonal star also expressed that she was not experiencing the “glow” people talk about when referring to pregnant women. In a humorous way, she explained that her nails were still short and that her hair was not all luscious and full. She pointed out that all those beautiful adjectives were lies.
Closer to her due date, Clarkson took to Twitter, once again, to continue to reveal more of her experiences about being pregnant with her baby girl. She explained how she felt a weird but cool feeling when the baby started kicking, and that she was sure River Rose was going to be a gymnast. On her birthday, she also vented on the social media account. She said that for her birthday wish, she had asked her baby girl to sleep through the night and to be a smiley baby when she comes out. A week before her baby was born, the singer could not wait for her delivery date, she expressed on Twitter that she was “tired, swollen and miserable.” It was time for River Rose to come out to the world.
After Kelly Clarkson gave birth on June 12, she shared the news on social media, but waited a couple of weeks before revealing her baby girl on Twitter. The singer had professional pictures taken of River Rose by Archetype Studio Inc. She expressed her thanks to the photography company on her Twitter account, and shared with her fans the now popular picture, which showed River Rose Blackstock to the world.
