Kelly Clarkson's 20-month-old daughter, River Rose, is a sweetheart who just adores her mom. And she loves Ellen DeGeneres.

Oh, and everyone else, too.

When the "Piece by Piece" singer sat down to chat with the talk-show host Thursday, she explained that her little girl's cheerful disposition and loving nature actually add up to one big fear for mom.

"It's kind of scary, because she would go home with anyone and be fine in life," Clarkson shared.

"I would take her home," DeGeneres said with a smile.

And apparently, River would really like that.

"She's very happy, like, with [anyone]," Clarkson added. "It's scary. You can't not watch her."

Well, she's happy with almost anyone.

As for DeGeneres, Clarkson feels like she's already a member of the family anyway, thanks to River Rose's love (and repeated viewings) of "Finding Nemo." DeGeneres voiced the character Dory in the original 2003 animated feature, and she does so again in the upcoming sequel "Finding Dory."

That prompted to host to hand over a special treat for her little-big fan.

DeGeneres even gave Clarkson a Nemo costume for the baby boy that's on the way for the singer and husband Brandon Blackstock.
