Kelly Clarkson‘s daughter River Rose undoubtedly looks up to her mama, but Wonder Woman is a close second.

The “Love So Soft” singer opened up to Ryan Seacrest Sunday evening on the Golden Globes red carpet, praising her 3½-year-old older child for having a variety of role models including the one recently made more accessible by Gal Gadot.

“My daughter’s a huge fan too. She’s adorable,” said Clarkson, 35, when Seacrest asked about the singer being a fan of Gadot. “She does the fighting like the little Wonder Woman in the movie.”

“It’s awesome to see your little girl do that, not just be Ariel [from The Little Mermaid],” she added. “Ariel’s awesome — she was my fave too, and Belle [from Beauty and the Beast] — but I’m just saying it’s cool to have a superhero chick for your daughter to be like, ‘I wanna dress like Wonder Woman.’ ”

River’s love for Gadot and Wonder Woman are no surprise, considering a sweet gift she received from the actress in November.

“Dearest River Rose, I wish you all the best. Your mom is the true Wonder Woman,” Gadot wrote on a photo of herself as Wonder Woman that she sent the lucky little girl, along with two figurines of the iconic DC heroine.
