Reba McEntire has someone new to sing about: Kelly Clarkson‘s son Remington Alexander!

At Sunday’s American Country Countdown Awards, McEntire spoke animatedly about 3-week-old Remy.

“He is so cute!” the country legend, 61, told Entertainment Tonight.

“When he was a day old, he would focus right in my eyes, just look right at me, then look right off, and then look right back at me. We’re buddies already.”

Clarkson’s husband Brandon Blackstock, 39, is the son of McEntire’s ex-husband Narvel Blackstock, whom she recently split from after 26 years of marriage.

Remy joins big sister River Rose, 2 next month, and Blackstock’s children Seth and Savannah from a previous relationship.

About Remy’s personality, McEntire says it’s amazing how “cute and responsive” he is already, and adds that Clarkson, 34, is “doing great. She said she’s feeling better, and everybody’s getting along just fine. The older two, Savannah and Seth, and River, just love their little brother.”

Since Remy’s birth on April 12, Clarkson has shared a couple sweet black-and-white snaps of him, as well as a beautiful outdoor shot of all the siblings together.

I kind of wonder how Shelby feels with all these media outlets framing Brandon as her son and never mentioning him.

Oh, that last picture of all four siblings is precious!

Reba is not blood related to anyone in the Blackstock family, Kelly is not her daughter in law and the baby is not her grand child, Kelly husband is not her child, this is what makes crazy family explaining to children.
