Kelly Clarkson's husband's ex-wife meets baby

2014-06-17 20:00

Lo Angeles - Kelly Clarkson's husband's ex-wife was one of the first people to meet their newborn daughter.

Melissa Ashworth White - who was married to the Since You've Been Gone hitmaker's husband, Brandon Blackstock, until 2012 - says the couple's baby girl, River Rose, is ''absolutely precious.''

She told "She's just absolutely precious. And Kelly is doing great."

The 32-year-old singer gave birth to her and Brandon's first child together last Thursday and Melissa - who has daughter Savannah, 11, and son Seth, seven, with Brandon, and also recently remarried, went to visit them on Saturday.

She and Kelly have become close friends and she attended the star's baby shower in April.

She said: "We have a wonderful relationship. I love Kelly and we get along great, and my husband and I hang out with them all the time."

She added: "At Kelly's baby shower, she certainly got a gift from me. I couldn't leave my kid out! I adore Kelly and Brandon as a couple."

Kelly married music manager Brandon in a low-key ceremony in Tennessee last October, and shortly afterwards admitted she couldn't wait to fall pregnant.

She also credited Savannah and Seth for making her want to become a mother.

She said: "They're so great. I never wanted kids before, but now I want, like, five.'"
