Kelly Clarkson, the Grammy-winning superstar singer, is a proud mother to her two children, Remington and River. However, she recently revealed that she WOULD NOT push her kids to follow in her footsteps and enter the music industry.
During an appearance on the 3rd hour of TODAY, as part of the Citi Concert Series, Clarkson explained her reasoning. She acknowledged that growing up in the industry could inspire her children to pursue music, but she believes they should also consider other professions such as teaching or medicine.
Despite her reservations, it seems that River, who is 9 years old, has already shown an interest in the music world.
Clarkson further mentioned that River had taken ownership of the song, referring to it as "her song." Even her son, Remington, has gotten involved, requesting that their mother plays "River's song."
In addition to her musical pursuits, Clarkson enjoys involving her children in her performances. River joined her on stage during her Las Vegas residency, showcasing her talent on the track
Aside from their involvement in her music career, Clarkson has also made some exciting changes in her personal life. She recently moved to New York City with her children as part of her decision to relocate her talk show, "The Kelly Clarkson Show," to Rockefeller Center. According to Clarkson, her kids love exploring the city, particularly riding the subway. She even shared a funny anecdote about her son, who insists on standing alone, creating the illusion of independence even though he's just 7 years old.
Clarkson's dedication to providing her children with a well-rounded childhood experience, filled with music, adventure, and independence, showcases her love and commitment as a mother. While she may not encourage them to follow in her footsteps, she supports and nurtures her children's unique passions and interests.
