Alongside the heartbreakingly cute picture of River Rose having a little nap in an old-fashioned style pram, Kelly wrote an emotional message about the newborn.

The American Idol winner said: "Here is our beautiful baby girl River Rose; 6lbs 6oz, 18 inches, and the greatest thing on the planet :)."

She also added a thank you to the photographer, writing: "Thank you so much @Archetype_Photo @kobyb for the amazing pictures of our little girl!! Once again, y'all knocked it out of the park!!"
