Kelly Clarkson Posts Adorable First Photo of Her Baby Girl (PHOTO)

Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock welcomed baby girl River Rose Blackstock a little over a week ago. Instead of sitting back, resting, and doing very little, the singer has already given her newborn a taste of the limelight. Clarkson released River's very first baby photo on Twitter, and it's just about the dreamiest baby photo you've ever seen.

The 32-year-old announced she was pregnant last November, about a month after marrying Blackstock. Even before the baby's gender was revealed, she was SO sure she was having a girl, mainly because she joked about how she couldn't stop vomiting, and we could tell she was over the moon about the idea.

So it makes sense that little River's first baby photo session would be sweet and feminine:

How cute is this?! And is anyone else now pining for that old-fashioned baby carriage? It probably wouldn't last a day on rough city pavement, but it is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

More from The Stir: Kelly Clarkson Gives Birth! Baby Girl Gets Name Inspired by Mother Nature

In the weeks after I gave birth, I thought about hiring a professional photographer to capture the perfect pictures of my babies, but there was so much else to do -- just getting the hang of breastfeeding took up all of my focus -- that I never got around to it. Big regret. I wish I had put everything aside for a few hours to take professional baby photos.

Clarkson was smart to have her baby's image captured while she is still in the "I sleep and look peaceful all of the time" stage. When they're first born, you have to act fast because that phase doesn't always last!

Love this photo of little River and LOVE that Clarkson put it out there for all of us to coo over. Looking forward to seeing even more pictures of this little cutie pie.

Did you set up a photo session for your baby when she or he was first born? What types of photos did you take?

My baby is two weeks old and like you, learning to breast feed has taken up pretty much all my time. We have his hospital pictures and I captured a pretty good one with my phone of his daddy holding him, which was what we used for his announcements. Too busy to hire a pro!

I just took my kids' newborn photos myself. Much cheaper, and could be done on my own time lol. (Also just a comment on her statement that she knew it was a girl because of how sick she was--I was 10x more sick with my son than I was my daughter lol).

How to people get their babies to sleep through a photo session??? My kids never let me put them down when they fall asleep in my lap. I took tons of pics of my babies. But none professionally.
