Congratulations to Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock, who welcomed their daughter River Rose Blackstock on Thursday, June 12.

The excited mom took to Twitter on Saturday morning to share the good news with her anxious fans. "Our baby girl River Rose Blackstock arrived on June 12th! Thank you everyone for all of your well wishes! Brandon and I are on cloud 9!!" she wrote, along with a smiley face.

Seems fitting to make the announcement on Twitter, given that's how she announced that she and Brandon were expecting, which she shared back in December, calling it the "best early Christmas present ever." Now, it looks like Brandon just got the best early Father's Day gift ever.

Kelly definitely didn't have an easy pregnancy. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (video below), the singer said that she had terrible morning sickness, saying that she vomited "at least a dozen times a day." At the time, they didn't know if they were having a boy or a girl, but Kelly said they had already picked out a unisex name for the baby, which we obviously now know.

Kelly and Brandon tied the knot in October of last year at Blackberry Farms in Tennessee. River is the first child for Kelly and Brandon has a son and daughter from a previous marriage.

A huge congrats to the proud parents. We can't wait to see pics of their little bundle of joy.
