Kelly Clarkson has never been happier — the former American Idol winner is finally a mother.

After making an early announcement of her pregnancy in Nov. 2013, the "Since U Been Gone" singer remained virtually hidden from the public eye — aside from a televised Christmas special in Dec. -- and was said to have gained a substantial amount of baby weight which an insider exclusively tells Clarkson is in "no hurry" to shed.

Clarkson and Blackstock eloped in Oct. 2013, tying the knot at the Walland, Tenn. resort Blackberry Farm.

Clarkson gave birth to River Rose Blackstock on June 12 and tweeted the following announcement:
