I’ve never really understood the whole “posing newborn babies in gardens”, Anne Gedes world of photography, but I’m gonna give Kelly Clarkson a pass on the first pictures of her new daughter, River Rose, because she’s adorable (the baby and Kelly too, I suppose) and she’s a proud mommy.
Here is our beautiful baby girl River Rose; 6lbs 6oz, 18 inches, and the greatest thing on the planet :) pic.twitter.com/zMlwNQPpRw

So there we have it: River Rose. I’ve heard of dudes being named River, but never ladies. It’s a little hippie-ish for my taste, but I don’t completely hate it.
What do you guys think of the name?

Kelly Clarkson has been wanting a baby for ages, and she’s getting her wish soon! She and husband Brandon Blackstock are going to be welcoming a little girl in just a couple of months, but Kelly has stayed out of the public eye mostly since making the announcement.
Well, now she’s been photographed pretty heavily pregnant and she looks adorable! I think so, anyway.

She revealed the news, as you do, on Twitter yesterday:
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!

Poor Kelly has been having a difficult pregnancy thus far, so it’s nice that she can get excited about knowing she’s having a daughter – it probably helps to see the light at the end of the awful tunnel. Also, I can totally see her with a girl. I don’t know why, because I don’t really think much about Kelly Clarkson in my day to day life, but aw!
She’s four months along, so she’s got a long ways to go yet – here’s hoping it gets a bit easier!

Not so long ago, Kelly Clarkson wouldn’t shut up about how badly she wanted her new husband Brandon Blackstock to knock her up in time for Christmas. She actually got her wish (though something tells me she already had it when she was pretending otherwise), and she’s actually realised pregnancy isn’t all that fun. In fact, it downright sucks, and that whole “motherly glow” thing might be a load of bullshit.
From The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via DS):
“I vomit a good dozen times a day,” she said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“It’s, like, bad. I vomited before coming out here and I had a peppermint so you didn’t [know]! I’m not even kidding, it’s so bad… it’s like so gross.”
Welcome to what most people’s pregnancies are like – especially the first time around. It’s no mystery that the first trimester tends to suck, and morning sickness is a pretty universally known thing, girl.
Well, Kelly isn’t out of her first trimester and is already showing – I’d say it’s gonna be a boy. Or twins! TWO BABIES! AH!!!

Let’s call a spade a spade here and get real: Kelly Clarkson was pregnant when she got married and she knew it. In fact, I’d venture a guess that it’s the reason this wedding got pushed forward so quickly when not too long ago, she was “too busy” to think about her wedding. Still, I’m a modern lady, so that’s neither here nor there – I just wish people didn’t feel the need to hide this or prescribe to the idea that they need to get a shotgun wedding for it to be honourable – it was her fiancé, after all, and even if it wasn’t, so what?
In any case, Kelly has been rambling about how she wants a baby so badly and in time for Christmas and she’s got her wish now, but she did receive some advice a while back from fellow mom Adele, who told her to chill the fuck out and not be too obsessed with getting a baby in her.
From US Weekly:
“I ran into her at the Grammys last year, and I was like, ‘So, when is your next album coming out?’” Clarkson, 31, told Us Weekly in a recent interview. “She knows now I’m a superfan. She’s so sweet. She’s my big favorite to work with just because I’m a huge fan. She told me she was a big fan, too, and gave me some advice.”
So, what specific words of wisdom did the Grammy-winning Brit share with the pop star? “She said, ‘Girl, don’t have a baby ’cause everything else will go on the back burner. I’m so happy living in babyland,’” Clarkson recalled.
