There’s a new member in one of music’s biggest families. Pop star Kelly Clarkson and her husband, Brandon Blackstock—Reba McEntire’s stepson—welcomed their daughter, River Rose, on June 12, and Kelly posted the happy news on Twitter. “Thank you everyone for all of your well wishes!” she said. The baby girl is Kelly’s first child and Brandon’s third.
