Kelly Clarkson had two very special guests visit her on The Voice this week! The judge of the series took to Instagram on Tuesday, Nov. 13 to share a new photo of her two kids, River and Remington, behind the scenes of the singing competition.
“Love when the kids come see me on set!” she captioned the pic of her daughter, 4, and son, 2. We can’t believe how grown up the kiddies are today, and neither can Kelly’s 3.7 million followers. “They are beautiful! You look amazing!” one commenter wrote. Another added, “They are beautiful just like their mama.” We agree!
Kelly, 36, previously welcomed River in June 2014 and Remington in April 2016 with her husband, Brandon Blackstock, 41, whom she married in 2013. She’s also a stepmother to two older children, Seth and Savannah, from Brandon’s previous relationship.
While the proud mama cherishes her music and other projects, she’s made it clear to Closer Weekly that her first priority is being a mom. “My favorite part of the day is bedtime stories with River Rose,” she once exclusively shared. “While I love music, my family comes first. There are days where s–t hits the fan, and I’m crying because there’s not enough time to do everything. But that’s [every] mom. You’re molding lives and you don’t want to suck at it!”
That said, she understands that it all takes balance. “I’m not going to be able to be there for everything, and that’s OK,” she added of mom-guilt. “It’s important for my girls, especially, to see me as a woman accomplishing all these things while nailing it as a mom. I always come back to that.”
The former American Idol winner concluded, “I’m going to teach my kids to do what they love. Love what you do. I’ve accomplished a lot, but I guess the biggest success I want is that whenever I die, people will say, ‘She was so successful as a mother and as a wife.’ That’s kind of my big goal.” You go, girl!
