Kelly Clarkson's daughter steals the show in her mom's latest music video!
On Thursday, Atlantic Records dropped the music video for "Broken & Beautiful," Clarkson's latest song for the upcoming film, UglyDolls. The video for the empowering, peppy anthem is a fun mix of live action and custom animation and features some very special guests -- the UglyDolls themselves and Clarkson's eldest child, River Rose.
The music video shows Clarkson getting ready to perform as her adorable 4-year-old child watches her. As Clarkson belts out the powerful lyrics -- wearing a stunning black gown with floral detailing -- River Rose helps her mom with her makeup, and the two share a dance. Meanwhile, Moxy -- the UglyDoll Clarkson voices in the flick -- attempts to sneak into the venue and River Rose even spots her.
Moxy eventually makes it to the stage, joining other UglyDolls -- including one made to look like DJ Marshmello, who co-produced the track -- as Clarkson finishes singing the uplifting song, which was co-written by Pink. River Rose looks on proudly as her mom performs, sporting a jean jacket, pink pants and silver shoes.
Clarkson -- who celebrated her 37th birthday on Wednesday -- is set to perform the song live when she hosts the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday, May 1.
"My whole life, I've wanted to do a princess voice, and I was like, 'Of course, I get UglyDolls,'" she quipped. "But, like, it's awesome."
"It definitely brought out the musical theater kid in me," she added.
She also hilariously opened up about how her kids -- River Rose and her 3-year-old son, Remington, whom she shares with her husband, Brandon Blackstock -- are no longer in awe of her success.
"They do not care anymore. They're not impressed," she said, before revealing that River Rose even offered up a brutal critique at one of her recent rehearsals.
"I wasn't singing full out because it's, like, three days in a row and then we have four days in a row for the show, so I was holding back," she explained. "She was like, 'Mommy, you know when you're on stage and you were singing?' And I was like, 'Yeah, baby.' I was thinking like a compliment was about to come. She was like, 'Yeah, I was really bored.'"
"I was like, 'Oh. Damn. ... Well, that was sweet honey. Maybe don't tell people that when they get off stage,'" Clarkson recalled. "But they don't care, they're over it. They see it all the time."
The UglyDolls Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is set to debut on Friday. UglyDolls hits theaters on May 3.
