It’s a….BOY for Kelly Clarkson and her husband Brandon Blackstock. Two months later the “Stronger” singer has announced the gender of their second child via Instagram on Friday, October 23rd.
“In other news, River’s gonna have a little baby brother” Clarkson wrote. “#itsaboy We’re so excited!”
Along with the caption, the American Idol alum posted a darling photo of the couple’s 16-month-old daughter, River Rose. She was born in January of 2014. Clarkson and Blackstock were married in October of 2013. He has two kids from a previous marriage, and the newest addition will be his second little boy.
The singer revealed the news that she was expecting in a rather impromptu fashion this summer during a concert in Los Angeles, the news just slipped right out of her mouth.
I was not planning on announcing this, but I’m pregnant,” Clarkson told the crowd. “Totally pregnant!” She even had to apologize to her husband, Brandon Blackstock, and blamed it on the hormones. “This is not how I wanted to announce that,” she explained. “My makeup artist is backstage just, like, hating me.”
The singer’s greatest success in country music has come from her duets with Reba McEntire (“Because of You”) and Vince Gill (“Don’t Rush”). Also, in 2013 she released the solo single, “Tie It Up.”
