Kelly Clarkson’s 4-Year-Old Has a Big Crush on Chris Martin of Coldplay
Kelly Clarkson's daughter, River Rose, has a big crush on Coldplay's Chris Martin. The pop-country superstar laughed as she told Jimmy Fallon how her daughter idolizes the singer during Tuesday night's (Sept. 18) episode of The Tonight Show.
"My daughter is obsessed currently … with Chris Martin," says Clarkson, who also used her appearance on Fallon to formally announce that she will have her own daytime talk show in 2019. “She’s in love with him."
The mom of four (Clarkson's husband, Brandon Blackstock, has two older children from a previous marriage) dishes that there is some confusion with this little episode of puppy love, considering that the 4-year-old is actually crushing on the 2000 version of Chris Martin from the "Yellow" music video.

"She doesn’t understand that he’s not the boy in the ‘Yellow’ video, like when he first came out years ago," River Rose's mom explains. The obsession began when Clarkson started singing "Yellow" at bedtime, while tucking her daughter in.
"She said, ‘Sing a song about stars.’ I started singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. She was like, ‘Boring,'” Clarkson recalls. “She said, ‘Another song about stars.’ So the only one I could think of was [‘Yellow’]. So I started singing that, and now she’s obsessed with it. She watches the video every night before bed.”
Clarkson recently announced plans for a brand new tour. The Meaning of Life Tour will kick off January 24 in Oakland, California, and will include the talents of not only Clarkson, but also country star Kelsea Ballerini and The Voice winner Brynn Cartelli. Clarkson is a coach on Season 15 of The Voice, which starts Sept. 24.
