Kelly Clarkson may be a hits machine, but when it came to naming her daughter, she admits that it didn’t take that much mental heavy lifting to conjure the unique moniker River Rose.

“We were going back and forth on what to name her,” the singer, 32, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “And I like androgynous names.”

During one day of her pregnancy, she and husband Brandon Blackstock, 38, were relaxing at their Nashville-area home when inspiration struck.

“We live on a river, so it really wasn’t that creative,” Clarkson — whose new album Piece by Piece comes out March 3 — says with a laugh.

North West Throws Another Inevitable Tantrum During Fashion Week (But It’s So Cute)

02/15/2015 at 11:45 AM ET

It was the making of a picture-perfect Saturday: one of Fashion Week’s most coveted fashion shows, prime seats, a smiling Kanye West.

But North was not interested in looking at clothes, based on the photos snapped of the teary-eyed 20-month-old while she was sitting on mom Kim Kardashian‘s lap at the Alexander Wang runway in New York City.

The ever-stylish tot has proven herself to be quite the fashion critic this week. Just Thursday, she threw a mini (and, yes, adorable) tantrum at dad West’s Adidas show while she was seated next to Beyoncé and Anna Wintour.

Fellow Wang attendee Nicki Minaj didn’t seem to mind West’s, ahem, feedback — really, who could take any issue with that face?
