Kelly Clarkson has shared an incredibly rare photo including kids River and Remington, this as she continues to make headlines for her divorce from estranged husband Brandon Blackstock. The 38-year-old American Idol OG and talk show host tends not to feature her tots on social media, with a Wednesday Instagram post breaking the mold.
Posting for her 5.2 million followers, The Kelly Clarkson Show host shared an adorable moment from Disney World Resorts in Orlando, FL, throwing in mommy vibes and some Star Wars action as she showed River, six, and Remington, four, enjoying vacation time with their now-single mom.
Kelly Clarkson hits Disney World with kids
See the photo below. Kelly, this month asking a judge to declare her legally single, filed for divorce just over a year ago after seven years of marriage. The bubbly blonde, who has primary custody of her two children, put on a brave front in the snap, one showing her indoors, crouching down and sandwiching her super-cute kids.
Kelly’s trio photo, seeing her backed by a series of figurines, came low-key. The singer, seemingly makeup-free, wore a simple patterned top, with her kids seen smiling alongside her. Kelly rocked shades atop her head as she wrote:
“These aren’t the droids you’re looking for,” adding:
"“We had so much fun at Disney World! All the rides were amazing but oh my gosh, y’all, Pandora and the Star Wars rides are where it’s at! Thank you for a magical vacation, Disney.”"
Fans, who have been watching Kelly and Brandon fight it out as the star’s ex seeks $436,000 a month in child support, can’t seem to get over how quickly her kids are growing up. “They grow up so fast,” one replied. “The kids are getting so big!” another added.
Kelly, who has openly stated that “the kids” are the “hardest part” of the messy divorce, largely dedicates her Instagram to her career – from her homeware partnership to her high-profile appearances on reality competition The Voice, it’s more about the promos than the family, something the star speaks about regularly, but rarely shows.
Speaking to viewers last year, the “Stronger” hitmaker revealed: “I think, as women especially, we’re trained… to take it all on, and you can deal with it, and you’re fine, but it’s your babies that you worry about.”
Kelly has also revealed her coping mechanism amid her split. She’s been tapping into her greatest passion – not making people laugh, but music. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Kelly said she’d written “like, 60 songs,” adding that it was an “Insane amount of getting it out.”
