Kelly Clarkson is one happy mama! The first American Idol was happy as can be before appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in NYC on Monday night.
The 32-year-old, who gave birth to daughter River Rose in June, brought her adorable baby girl to the show.
During her time on the show, the big-voiced singer and the funny man did a series of chart-topping duets, including Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," "Don't You Want Me" by The Human League and Lionel Richie and Diana Ross' "Endless Love."
In a recent interview with Pride Source, the mag asked the singer what would happen if River was gay -- and she had the best response. "Oh, I don't care. I mean, here's what I hope for her: I just hope she finds love. It took me a while, man. And there was a lot of heartache throughout those years."
Meanwhile, the "Since You've Been Gone" singer just announced Piece By Piece summer tour, writing on her Facebook, “BIG NEWS! I’m going on tour this summer & bringing Pentatonix with me! Get dates & pre-sale info here."
Kelly‘s tour starts on July 11 and includes shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville and more!

But seeing as this mystery dude looks like John Gosselin's long lost brother and has a giant man purse in his hand, it's pretty safe to assume this was more of a friendly meet-up than a romantic evening out. Sure, he's got tattoos, but is this really Pammy's type?
On Monday night Pamela Anderson and her male pal dined at Crossroads in Hollywood, and even though her marriage to Rick Salomon recently fell apart (again -- this is the third time the couple filed for divorce), she was looking smokin' hot.
And that perfectly flat-ironed blonde bob? Loves it! We're sure Pammy will find a new man in no time ... especially if she keeps on flashing this much leg when she hits the town! She may be 47, but the former Baywatch babe definitely still has it...

Don't fret 50 Shades of Grey fans, Jamie Dornan will continue to hit Dakota Johnson for money!
The Irish actor has signed on to reprise his role as S&M loving billionaire Christian Grey for the film's highly anticipated sequel -- for a hefty $6.9 million price tag.
Last week, reports surfaced that The Fall actor was walking from the sextacular series. But it appears after some negotiations -- the star is staying.
A source close to the actor told the Daily Star: 'The money on the offer was just too good. He's been really worried that he will get typecast as Christian Grey and it will do his long-term career ambitions damage."
Break out the whips and ball gags -- it's time to celebrate!

Hilary Duff recently tossed in the towel on her marriage to Mike Comrie, but there are certainly no breakup blues here! On Monday we snapped the 27-year-old starlet grocery shopping in Beverly Hills, and from the smile on her face to her calm demeanor, she seemed totally fine.
Duff filed for divorce from Comrie less than two weeks ago, which was almost exactly a year after the two announced that they were separating. Duff cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, and she's asking for primary custody of the couple's 2-year-old son Luca.
Hil covers the new issue of Cosmopolitan, and in it she dishes all the deets on her ill-fated union. "Mike and I were very in love when we met," she tells the mag. "We both really wanted to get married. I'd been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn't, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy. It wasn't working well enough to stay together, but there was still a lot of love involved. It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match that we used to be. I'm lucky for the person he is and I am and how we decided to handle this."
The singer/actress continued, "I don't want to sound bitter because I'm definitely not, but I don't know if people are meant to be together forever. Things happen over a long relationship that you can't always fight. A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel really great, but there are also huge sacrifices. I just always want to fight for happiness."
Sounds like she'll be just fine! And speaking of fine, she's looking pretty hot these days too:

After reading Kanye West's University of Oxford lecture (oh how we wish there was a video!), we remember why initially fell in love with the rapper's message. He's bold, he's funny, and even if you don't agree with what he has to say, you have to admire his enthusiam. Of course, Kanye also made a number of completely ridiculous comments, but for the most part he redeemed himself when he spoke at the prestigious university last night.
Only a few photos of Kanye have made their way online, but lucky for us, Oxford's student newspaper, The Tab, posted the full transcript on their website. Highlights?
"People say it takes a village to raise a child. People ask me how my daughter is doing. She's only doing good if your daughter's doing good. We're all one family. We have the ability to approach our race like ants, or we have the ability to approach our race like crabs."
"Clothing should be like food. There should never be a $5,000 sweater. You know what should cost $5,000? A car should be $5,000. And you know who should work on the car? The people that work on the $500,000 cars. All the best talent in the world needs to work for the people."
"I was exiled from my country, it was a personal exile, but exile. To come back and deliver my magnum opus of a work, and to be out-shined…to be beat by a girl [Nicki Minaj], basically. This was necessary. I think it was one of the most important points of working on that album, was to not stop her from her moment because of how good she is."
"Some of you here probably remember the night when the Donda [his creative agency] tweets came through me and I started talking about professions that you guys are going into, that seemed they had nothing to do with a rapper. I was talking about a band of thinkers that could remove religion, race, gender, and somehow come together to find solutions for a broken planet. We have the resources as a civilization to find a utopia, but we're led by the most greedy and the least noble."
"My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become Picasso or greater. That always sounds so funny to people, comparing yourself to someone in the past that has done so much, and in your life you're not even allowed to think that you can do as much. That's a mentality that suppresses humanity."
"People say I have a bad reputation. I think I've got the best reputation in the building. They want you to have a reputation of tucking your black nail polish into your pockets and sitting in the corner of the class, and not fighting for your ideas out of fear of being ridiculed. That's one of my favorite ones ... to be called crazy."
Of course, the best quote came at the end of the night when Yeezy admitted that he has a pretty big head. Yeezy told the crowd, "One of my biggest Achilles' heels has been my ego. And if I, Kanye West, the very person, can remove my ego, I think there's hope for everyone."
Tell us: After reading this, has your opinion of the rapper changed at all?
Has Kanye West redeemed himself with his guest lecture at Oxford University?
Definitely! Not only does he come across as intelligent, but he sounds pretty humble!
No way! I'll always think he's an egotistical d-bag.

Jennifer Garner attended the Roundabout Theatre Company's 2015 Spring Gala honoring Helen Mirren last night in New York City, and the actress looked amazing in a simple black dress and heels. She was joined by Alec Baldwin and his pregnant wife Hilaria, who showed off her growing baby bump in a skintight red number.
The bash was titled "There is Nothing Like A Dame," and Garner was the lucky one who presented Mirren with the Jason Robards Award For Excellence In Theater. That would explain why she was extra dolled up, but where was her hubby Ben Affleck? She can't possibly have left him behind in Los Angeles to watch after their three kids, right?
Other celebs at the event included Liam Neeson, Victor Garber, Matthew Broderick, Alan Cumming and Jane Krakowski ... check out more photos in the gallery below!

We would say our hearts go out to Bobbi Kristina Brown's friends and family, but when some of them are reportedly trying to bank on the fact that she's fighting for her life in the hospital, we feel like they should be called out for that...
Several members of Bobbi Kristina's family are currently shooting a reality show, and while her father Bobby Brown will NOT be appearing in the series, three of his siblings (sisters Tina and Leolah, along with brother Shane) and a handful of his nieces and nephews are involved in it. Really guys?!
TMZ reports that the show will not show footage from inside Emory University Hospital, which is where she's currently staying, but family members are shown discussing Bobbi Kristina's medical status.
In addition to slamming Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon last month, Leolah has a bit of a history of mouthing off to the media. Several years ago she told reporters that she held Ray J responsible for Whitney Houston's death, claiming he fueled her cocaine habit. Leolah hinted that she'll be sharing her story when she posted a lengthy message on Facebook over the weekend.
"I will always speak the truth no matter whom or what," she wrote. "For it is God that 'I' truly fear. Never will I try to make a name for myself to make one appear bad or ugly in others eyes...for my only interest is The Truth and the well being of my niece Bobbi Kriss Period. With that said stay tuned for THE TRUTH coming from MY mouth. For there is much that is serious and needs to be said to help others coming afterwards. My niece Bobbi Kriss is painfully suffering because of the neglect and greed that certain ones who on a daily basis maliciously aimed to simply see her where she is today. I, as her aunt and one who TRULY loves her will not sit back and let the sick, sad madness and injustice continue. With the help of almighty God, I intend to expose THE LIARS who pretend to have her back but are yet THE evil doers! Their days are Over with the fakeness! It's Exposing time!"
