MusicRowLife: Garth Brooks, Kelly Clarkson


Garth Brooks’ granddaughter, Karalynn

Garth Brooks is now a grandfather. Brooks welcomed his first grandchild when his middle daughter August Brooks gave birth to daughter, Karalynn, on Tuesday (July 23).

“Our family would first like to thank everyone for their warm wishes and sweet celebration of Baby K’s arrival,” said Brooks in a statement. “Our children’s lives have always been extremely private and they have been endlessly encouraged to be their own people. We have always wanted them to be individuals and NOT be known as ‘someone’s daughters’. I have been amazed and grateful how the press has always respected this. I now ask that respect to please continue as this young family begins the greatest days of their lives.”

Brooks has three daughters, including Taylor Mayne Pearl, August Anna, and Allie Colleen.
