Kelly Clarkson’s bun is out of the oven: The singer welcomed her first son on Tuesday.

“Our little baby boy has arrived!! Remington Alexander Blackstock was born 4/12/16 & he is healthy & we couldn’t be happier or more in love!,” she said Thursday on Twitter.

Remington’s arrival makes 22-month-old River Rose a big sister and husband Brandon Blackstock, who has two kids from a previous marriage, a father of four.


Though she’d canceled tour dates in August after a doctor ordered vocal rest, Mama Kelly managed to make a “last-minute” appearance via remote on the “Americal Idol” finale. Her career-spanning mini-concert, taped in February, was well-received.

“What was truly amazing was that she did it all pregnant. Not just a little pregnant, a lot pregnant,” The Times’ TV critic Mary McNamara said. “Do you know how hard it is to breathe when you’re that pregnant? How hot you get anyway, even without the form-fitting black dress and relentless stage lights?”

News of the pregnancy came last August during a concert in Los Angeles when the “Stronger” singer unexpectedly blurted out that she was expecting.

“I would like to apologize to my husband. This was not planned,” she said at the time, presumably talking about the announcement and not the baby. “I’m just so hormonal. Everything is great; I haven’t vomited yet. That’s a win, y’all.”
