Last week she announced the birth of her daughter River Rose on Twitter and Kelly Clarkson has once again used social media to share the first photo of her eight-day-old bundle of joy.
The talented singer shared the pic to Instagram on Friday and included the message: ‘Here is our beautiful baby girl River Rose; 6lbs 6oz, 18 inches, and the greatest thing on the planet.’
The precious little one lays with her eyes closed wearing a cute headband while perched on a white lace blanket inside a beautiful red baby carriage.The proud new mother announced her baby’s June 12th arrival last week in a tweet saying, ‘Thank you everyone for all of your well wishes! Brandon and I are on cloud 9!!’
This is the first child for the American Idol winner with her music manager husband Brandon Blackstock.
Kelly married Brandon in a low-key ceremony in Tennessee last October, and shortly afterwards admitted that she couldn’t wait to fall pregnant.
The Since You Been Gone singer is already a stepmother to Brandon’s two children from his first marriage, Seth, seven, and Savannah, 11.
Kelly is good friends with her husband’s ex-wife, Melissa Ashworth White, who was one of the Grammy winner’s first visitors after giving birth.
