Congratulations are in order for Kelly Clarkson and her husband, Brandon Blackstock, who welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday. The singer Tweeted the big news this morning.

“Our little baby boy has arrived! Remington Alexander Blackstock was born 4/12/16 and he is healthy and we couldn’t be happier or more in love!”

Her Twitter announcement certainly feels less spontaneous than her pregnancy announcement, which she made during a Los Angeles performance in August.

“I was not planning on announcing this, but I’m totally pregnant,” she divulged as she struggled to make it through her hit song “Piece by Piece” without getting emotional. “Piece by Piece” speaks to Clarkson’s rough history with her father, while also crediting Blackstock as the great dad that he is to River Rose, 22 months.

River, who has received her very own guitar from Blake Shelton and fashion compliments from Lady Gaga will have to learn how to share the spotlight! We have a feeling Remington Alexander will get that same kind of love.
