Kelly Clarkson wanted to share the very first photo of her beautiful daughter, River Rose, the way she wanted to do it. And what better way than by utilizing Instagram and showing her off directly to fans?

It's safe to say fans are pleased Clarkson shared the image with them herself -- just hours after being posted, River has accumulate more than 20K likes and a plethora of gushing comments.

It's only been six days since the original 'American Idol' star announced River Rose's birth, and she was already ready to share. The photo shows her daughter in a red stroller in front of what may be Clarkson's house. The stroller's colors and flower accents prove the new baby is 100% girl. River Rose is asleep atop the stroller, wrapped in a blanket with a little lace and wearing a thin flowered headband.

"Here is our beautiful baby girl River Rose; 6lbs 6oz, 18 inches, and the greatest thing on the planet," Clarkson writes, captioning the picture. Of course, the singer probably isn't the only one gushing over this gorgeous little lady. The star's husband, Brandon Blackstock, is more than likely already wrapped around baby's tiny fingers.
