Kelly believes that her daughter, River, will become a CEO one day because she's a bit 'ballsy.' In an interview with People, Kelly said, “I love that [River] is very bold, and she’s progressive for three. I don’t want my daughter to be a pushover when she’s older. So that’s an awesome thing, it’s an awesome aspect of her character."

Expanding more on her daughter's personality, Kelly continues, “She will run a company one day because there’s no way she’s gonna work for anyone. She does not heed advice very well. She’s just very ballsy, which is awesome.”

Kelly and her husband Brandon Blackstock call their son Remy, but his full name is Remington. And Clarkson thinks he might be watching too much Jurassic Park, since he tends to be a bit destructive. She says, “[But] like our oldest, I think he’s gonna be more the athlete, just like, ‘How can I knock something over?’ He’s like the Tasmanian Devil — anything that can and will be destroyed, is.”

The oldest child she's referring to is Brandon's son Seth, 12. He and sister Savannah, 17, are from Blackstock's first marriage to Melissa Ashworth.

Kelly has taken her role as stepmom very seriously. Savannah is an equestrian and has won several competitions. Kelly is a proud supporter, retweeting Savannah's post on her Twitter page and captioning,

"Everybody go vote please! Our girl just won the championship in her division"

As for Seth, he made an appearance on a show with Kelly back in 2015, singing and dancing to "Uptown Funk" with her backup singers. Both kids are just as proud and supportive of Kelly.

Kelly and Brandon are very happy with their mixed family and don't have plans to expand their brood.

She's definitely earned her crown as an American Idol winner but Kelly Clarkson is also dominating the world of motherhood. And even though she doesn't like the idea of her kids being in the spotlight, River has already made a few cameos in the showbiz world.

She was featured in Kelly's music videos for "Piece by Piece" and "Broken & Beautiful." Still, regarding her children, Kelly told Country Living,

"I hope they’re, like, teachers or doctors or something. It’s a hard industry."
