On Thursday, the singer-songwriter shared a photo of her little one coming face-to-face with the costumed character during a recent visit to Disneyland, and it's clear from the look the 3-year-old gives him that she's totally smitten with the muscle-bound baddie.
In the photo, Gaston gives River Rose a half-hug and regales her with some story — likely about his own greatness — as she stares into his eyes and smiles sweetly.
As for mom, she knew this could only mean one thing.
"Oh great so she’s into bad boys at the age of 3," Clarkson captioned the pic, adding an eye-rolling emoji. "This should be fun."

In November, Clarkson revealed her little girl's love for Wonder Woman, and star Gal Gadot let River Rose know it was mutual by sending her dolls and an autographed photo that came with a great message.
The actress told the tot that "your mom is a true Wonder Woman."
