Listing all the things Kelly Clarkson does would take all day, but one thing always comes first — she is such an incredible mom to her kids, River Rose and Remington. Their cutest moments are enough to make anyone say “aww!”
The American Idol alum shares her beloved children with her estranged husband, Brandon Blackstock. The singer is also a loving stepmom to his two teenagers, Savannah and Seth, from a previous relationship with ex-wife Melissa Ashworth.
Since calling it quits with Brandon in early June, the iconic entertainer and the music executive have made raising their brood their No. 1 “priority,” a source exclusively told Closer Weekly. “They’re on board about moving forward with coparenting as their prime concern,” the insider explained shortly after Closer confirmed the news of their split on June 11.
Considering Kelly and Brandon’s youngest children are “very close” with their step-siblings, the former pair are doing all they can to make “this transition as easy as possible,” the insider noted. “It’s going to be an emotionally tough road ahead.”
It doesn’t come as a shock that Kelly is putting her kiddos first following her divorce considering she’s always been a dedicated parent. At the time she landed her hosting gig on the The Kelly Clarkson Show in September 2019, Kelly revealed she made sure her clan came first when she was figuring out the daytime talk show.
“When we were doing the schedule for the show, I was like, ‘I have to drop my kids off at school and I’m always the one who puts them to bed,'” she explained to People. “You just have to prioritize and juggle and make people know it’s an important thing. And don’t feel guilty about it.”
In fact, the “Since U Been Gone” songstress once dished how she’ll never let her career take her away from her children.
“While I love music, my family comes first,” she gushed to Closer in 2018. “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!”
