So, if we're talking about the desires of true Kelly Clarkson fans, we would have wanted the first idol to give birth on American Idol finale night — toasting the end of an era by ushering in a new era, right? Alas, we only got Clarkson's incredible performance on Thursday, followed by some great live tweeting of Idol's final night from the pop star. But, one week later, fans reacted to Kelly Clarkson's birth announcement, when Clarkson tweeted that her second child, Remington Alexander Blackstock, joined her burgeoning family on April 12. Just five days late, Remington!
But a moment like this was worth the wait for fans — though we don't have a photo of young Remington Alexander, we do have an indication from Clarkson's Instagram that Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock's son will be just as cute as the nearly 2-year-old River Rose. I mean, come on. Come on. COME ON.
And Clarkson's fans are (what else) more than pumped for America's first chosen pop star, especially if that means we will continue to get amazing performances inspired by the Clarkson's family — performances that are all too relatable to anyone who has ever, like Clarkson, dealt with life and responsibility as a mom.
So how did fans react to Clarkson's exciting announcement?
