Kelly Clarkson and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, have welcomed their newborn son on Tuesday, the American Idol winner announced on her Twitter account. They named him Remington Alexander Blackstock, who is now their second child together.
Baby Remington has made the 1-year-old River Roser, a big sister and as he was born healthy, the family expressed their happiness and their love over the announcement, according to Clarkson’s tweet.
“Our little baby boy has arrived! Remington Alexander Blackstock was born 4/12/16 and he is healthy and we could not be happier or more in love,” the singer wrote on Thursday after some privacy days.
The three-day-old little boy also made Blackstock father of four, counting the two children with the singer and his other two from a previous marriage. The pregnancy was a spontaneous announcement during a Los Angeles concert in October, as report he by E News.
The most successful alumni of American Idol told the Californian crowd the news and described that it was not how she wanted to announce it, but added she was “just so hormonal” and could not wait.
At the moment of the big news, she commented that everything was great and that she has not vomited yet, which was a win for her, referring to her first pregnancy where she could not stop vomiting.
Clarkson last appearance
Doctors had recommended the singer to have vocal rest, but even though she canceled tour dates in August after the recommendations, she could not keep much time away from the spotlight.
During the American Idol finale in April, she made a “last minute” remote appearance in the show, which was taped in February where she was still pretty much pregnant and still with rest-orders from the doctors.
The show was well received by critics which highlighted her vocation and talent for being able to perform such an act while being having an advance pregnancy, as reported by Los Angeles Times.
“What was truly amazing was that she did it all pregnant. Not just a little pregnant, a lot pregnant,” said Mary McNamara, The Times’ TV critic. “Do you know how hard it is to breathe when you are that pregnant? How hot you get anyway, even without the form-fitting black dress and relentless stage lights?,” she added.
