In addition to being a super talented singer, Kelly Clarkson is also a gorgeous wife and mother. Family is very important to her and she has proven that time and time again through social media posts and interviews.
Her beautiful family
Kelly is married to Brandon Blackstock. They began dating in February 2012 and got married in October 2013. Their first child, River Rose, was born on June 12, 2014. They later had a son named Remington Alexander on April 12, 2016.
Brandon, however, has a son and daughter (Seth and Savannah) from a previous relationship.
Kelly Clarkson is raising her daughter to be strong and empowered
Being a bold, fierce lady herself, it's no surprise that Kelly Clarkson is raising River Rose to be the same way.
The singer was recently featured on People magazine in their 'Beauty Issue 2018', and she shared her empowering words of wisdom for her 3-year-old daughter.
She will run a company one day because there's no way she's gonna work for anyone. She does not heed to advice very well. She's just very ballsy, which is awesome.
The American Idol alumn loves to inspire not just her kids and stepkids, but children all around the world through her social media posts.

In several interviews, Kelly has opened up about how she's raising River Rose to be a strong, confident girl.
For instance, in 2017, she told PrideSource that when it comes to bullying, she advises her daughter to take the high road and block all negativity.
That same year, she told PEOPLE that she always teaches her daughter to stand up for herself and speak up when she sees something wrong.
I think if we start it at that young age, and you start molding people and growing to these very elevated individuals that help elevate society.
Kelly is also determined to teach her kids all about the importance of following your heart and having a positive body image.
On being a working mom
One has to wonder how Kelly juggles her career and motherhood. In a Facebook Live conversation with Hoda Kotb of the Today Show last year, the singer admitted that it can be quite challenging.
When it comes to being a mother, Kelly focuses on being there for the important moments instead of beating herself up over being absent for some aspects. And she hopes her children will see this as a motivation to achieve their own dreams later on.
I'm not going to be able to be there for everything, and that's OK because I'm showing my daughter and my son and our kids that you can do both and achieve great things.
We think River Rose has a very great role model to look up to, don't you?
