Kelly Clarkson Baby Boy Born! Singer And Brandon Blackstock Welcome Son
Kelly Clarkson has given birth! The singer and husband Brandon Blackstock welcomed their second child together, a baby boy, on Tuesday.
Clarkson herself announced the news on Twitter on Thursday. “Our little baby boy has arrived,” she exclaimed. “Remington Alexander Blackstock was born 4/12/16 & he is healthy & we couldn’t be happier or more in love!”
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Clarkson revealed her pregnancy during a concert at the Staples Center in L.A. last August. The “American Idol” winner had just finished performing “Piece By Piece” when she told the audience that she and Blackstock were expecting again. “I was not planning on announcing this, but I’m pregnant, totally pregnant,” she told the crowd. She then went on to say, “I would like to apologize to my husband. This was not planned… I’m just so hormonal. Everything is great. I haven’t vomited yet. That’s a win, y’all.”
In the midst of her pregnancy, Clarkson returned to “American Idol” earlier this year, giving an emotional performance of the same song that prompted her to announce her pregnancy news. She blew away the judges and the crowd, leaving everyone, including herself, in tears. Because of her due date, she pre-taped a medley performance for last week’s “American Idol” series finale.
Clarkson gave birth to her first child, a daughter named River Rose, on June 12, 2014. She and Blackstock married in October 2013 at Blackberry Farms in Tennessee. In addition to River Rose and now Remington, Blackstock has two other children from his first marriage. Congrats to the growing family!
