Oh joyous day! Kelly Clarkson has given birth to her first child, a baby girl, River Rose Blackstock, on June 12. Clarkson tweeted the news and said, "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!! :)"
The singer, 32, first announced she and Blackstock are expecting via Twitter last November. Clarkson excitedly tweeted:
This, days after she told Jay Leno on air that she and Blackstock "are not announcing anything right now! ... Practice makes perfect! We're trying, trying, trying … like rabbits!"
In January, the "American Idol" alumna revealed they are having a girl. "Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!" she tweeted at the time.
Clarkson has been upfront about the downside of pregnancy, telling Ellen DeGeneres that she vomits "a good dozen times a day." She also revealed that she and her husband had already picked out a unisex name for the child.
