Mom Crush Monday: Kelly Clarkson

Is there any celebrity more down to earth than Kelly Clarkson? The southern sweetheart won us over ages ago with her powerhouse vocals, but our infatuation with her has reached new levels since she became a mom.

Clarkson has put out seven albums since she first claimed the title of American Idol. With countless chart-topping hits and three Grammy’s under her belt, this mom is a force to be reckoned with.

She married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in October 2013, becoming a stepmom to his son and daughter from his previous marriage. Then Clarkson gave birth to their daughter, River Rose, on June 12, 2014. This past summer she unexpectedly announced her second pregnancy during her tour, soon after letting the world know she’s expecting a baby boy.

For this week’s Mom Crush Monday, we’re celebrating Kelly Clarkson and getting her take on family, music, and so much more.
