Kelly Clarkson and hubby Brandon Blackstock welcomed their baby girl to the world on Thursday. Kelly announced the birth of River Rose Blackstock on Saturday via Twitter. When the singer shared word of her pregnancy several months back she said right away she was going to have a baby girl.
“I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’ ” she joked back in November.
It was in January that Clarkson learned she was in fact carrying a baby girl.
“I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’ ” she joked in November, long before officially finding out the sex of her baby on the way.
We just found out we're having a girl officially! I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!

And what a great name for this little girl. It is definitely creative but not outlandish or overly trendy.
“Honestly, the name we’ve picked, if it’s a boy or a girl, it’s the same name,” she joked with Ellen DeGeneres a while back. “You won’t guess it. It’s a random name. But it’s not like … ‘Blue Jazz.’ It’s not going to be a weird name.”
It's pretty likely that River's middle name wouldn't have been Rose had she been a he, however.
No photos have emerged of Kelly and Brandon's little bundle of joy as of yet. Do you suppose they'll hold out to the highest bidder like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? That's pretty unlikely. Kelly Clarkson isn't a flashy kind of person. She has remained quite humble despite her incredible fame. The new mom is no doubt far more enthralled with her new baby girl than with any offers of money for photos.
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!!
