Santa Claus may bring kids presents on Christmas Day, but that doesn't mean the old guy with the long white beard isn't kind of scary-looking — just check out this pic of Kelly Clarkson's daughter, River, freaking out when she met the man in red.

The 18-month-old was photographed midcry in the photo. "So this happened…" the singer wrote. "#RiverLovesSanta …is it wrong I slightly enjoyed this ha!"

The "Stronger" singer, 33, is expecting her second child — a boy — with husband Brandon Blackstock, and shared an amazing Game of Thrones-themed Christmas card earlier this month that showed her and her clan (including her husband's two kids from a previous marriage) posing in front of a castle, along with the line "Winter is Coming Blackstock."

The American Idol alum didn't reveal whether Winter is the name she's chosen for her new baby, but she also added the hashtags #winteriscoming #riverisnotworried when she tweeted the holiday card.
