Kelly Clarkson's little girl is here, y'all!

The 32-year-old singer said on Twitter on Saturday, June 14, that she gave birth to her and hubby Brandon Blackstock's daughter, who is their first child together. Perfect timing, too—the news comes a day before Father's Day!

"Our baby girl River Rose Blackstock arrived on June 12th!" she tweeted. "Thank you everyone for all of your well wishes! Brandon and I are on cloud 9!! :)"

The first-time mom, who married Reba McEntire's stepson in a small ceremony in Tennessee this past October, couldn't be happier about being a parent! Just weeks before she and Brandon tied the knot, she revealed on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, "I want babies, like, right off the bat!"

"Well, I'm totally gonna have a girl," she predicted. "My first child will be a girl—I know it in my soul." (When her prediction turned out to be three months later, she tweeted, "I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!")

But all that morning sickness was worth it! Because now, Kelly and Brandon get to welcome their daughter into their home, which they also share with his 12-year-old daughter Savannah, and 8-year-old son Seth, from a previous relationship. "I really lucked out with the whole kids situation," Kelly said of her stepkids in a radio interview with  Valentine in the Morning. "They're amazing."

"I probably want two more [kids] though," she said at the time, just weeks before revealing she already had one baby on the way. "I kind of want to have two around the same age."

Maybe baby Blackstock will have another sibling sooner than you think!
