Former American Idol contestant, songwriter, author, actress, and talk show host Kelly Clarkson has just about done it all. But the singer’s most important role is that of mom — and she embraces it every day.

Clarkson shares daughter, River Rose, and son, Alexander Remington, with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock. In October 2020, Clarkson opened up about her divorce and shared how her kids came first for her throughout the contentious situation:

“I have a great family and friends that are there for me. It’s a very hard thing to navigate, to be able to be honest and share your story, so maybe you can help someone else, but at the same time protecting these little kids you adore and they’re the most important thing to you.”

Parents immediately began responding to Clarkson’s post with their own glowing reviews of the Colombian-inspired film, which has taken America by storm — Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” was even the number one song in the country at one point, and the Encanto soundtrack is officially more popular than Frozen (2013).

The reactions are a refreshing change of pace from the often negative comments on celebrities’ social media posts.

Another follower shared, “We (the parents) watched it today while the kids were at school.”

The official description of Encanto reads:

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house [Casita], in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength [Luisa] to the power to heal [Isabela] — every child except one, Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz). 

But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.
