We've said it before, but we'll say it again and, just so you're properly warned... we'll probably say it again at some point in the future as well:
Kelly Clarkson is simply the cutest.
The original American Idol champion announced her second pregnancy toward the end of August this year by simply blurting out the news in concert.
She didn't plan on making the reveal at that time or in that place, but she simply could not help herself.
Clarkson did plan today's bombshell drop, however.
Via an adorable Instagram photo of daughter River Rose, the artist has announced the gender of her impending child.
"In other news, River's gonna have a little baby brother :) #itsaboy We're so excited!" Clarkson wrote as a caption to the photo above.
Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock welcomed little girl River on June 12, 2014; the superstar is also stepmother to Blackstock’s son and daughter from a previous marriage.
The couple's boy, meanwhile, is due some time this spring and we could not be happier for Kelly.
She's the best. In case we haven't mentioned that many times before.
