Get to Know Kelly Clarkson's Kids, River and Remington

Kelly Clarkson is known to most as the first winner of “American Idol” and the host of “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” not to mention also being recognized and appreciated for her powerful voice and songwriting skills. However, to two little ones, she is known more simply as “Mom.”

Clarkson’s kids include two (former) stepchildren and two of her own. After marrying Brandon Blackstock in 2013, Clarkson became a stepmom to his two kids from a previous marriage: Savannah, born in 2002, and Seth, born in 2006. The pair later went on to have two children of their own: River, born in 2014, and Remington, born in 2016.

In June 2020, after the height of the COVID-19 lockdown, Clarkson filed for divorce from her husband of nearly seven years, claiming irreconcilable differences. Their split was super messy and involved many complications, including Clarkson’s accusations of fraud initiated by Blackstock and major disagreements regarding spousal and child-support payments. Through it all, Clarkson remained candid about the situation and always made it clear that her main priority is her children.

In May 2023, Clarkson revealed that she had decided to move her kids from Los Angeles to NYC. “. . . There were a lot of personal things going on, too,” she told TalkShopLive on May 25. “I feel like our family — me and my kids — really needed a fresh start and I just could not get it here [in Los Angeles]. There was just hurdle after hurdle with things.”

In a June 28 interview with the “Las Culturistas” podcast, Clarkson said that her two kids — who were then staying at Clarkson’s Montana ranch — reacted to the news that the family was headed to New York differently. “They’ve been here off and on for vacations, but they haven’t actually lived here, going to school here, done that here so that’s happening right when they start school,” she explained. “My son is very excited. My daughter, I’m still winning over. It’s not New York, it’s the fact that she just has friends,” Clarkson said. “Now my son is like, ‘My friends will be fine, let’s go.’ He loves New York.”

On Oct. 16, Clarkson gave an update on how her family is doing now that they’ve made the move, telling USA Today that she’s extremely happy with her decision to live in New York. She’s settled down in a spot close to 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where her show is filmed, and she added that a great location was a top priority for her. “I was like, ‘I’m not living here unless it’s right by the park and really nice for the kids,'” she said.

Still, Clarkson said, she was initially very nervous about the move. “I’ll be real honest: I thought I was making a horrible decision,” she said. “I knew I needed a fresh start and couldn’t be in LA. I really wanted to be in Montana, but you can’t really do a show from there quite yet. So I was like, ‘The only other option would probably be New York.'” But now, she feels differently. “I genuinely love it, and I love that my kids love it,” she said, noting that she’s doing much better now than she was while filming earlier seasons of her show. “. . . What’s cool for me with season five is I am in such a great place, not only with my kids, but with me personally and with the show,” she added. “I feel like a weight has lifted. That move was very needed. I think the thing I’m most excited about with season five, on a selfish level, is just showing up to work smiling and actually meaning it. That’s a beautiful gift that you don’t realize until you’re out of it.”
