Congratulations to Kelly Clarkson who welcomed her first daughter on Thursday, June 12, tweeting the news on Saturday.

Little River Rose. Different but definitely cute, especially for a little girl. Kelly had told Ellen DeGeneres a while back that the name would have been the same whether it was a boy or a girl.

“Honestly, the name we’ve picked, if it’s a boy or a girl, it’s the same name,” she told Ellen DeGeneres. “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.”

This is the first child for Kelly and her husband (and Reba’s stepson) Brandon Blackstock. Brandon has two children from a previous marriage.
