Kelly Clarkson’s daughter River Rose, 8, has an unlikely ally: Henry Winkler — AKA, The Fonz from Happy Days! He appeared on the April 18 episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show and opened up about dyslexia, which he and River both have.

“I literally was driving my daughter to school yesterday, and she’s dyslexic,” Clarkson says. “And you have told me that you’re dyslexic as well, and I find that amazing to tell my daughter that you’ve written like 40 books, and you’re dyslexic.”

“’Cause she was getting bullied, like at school, for not being able to read like all the other kids,” Clarkson continued.

As a mom, that’s heartbreaking to see your daughter suffering like that and being bullied for something she can’t control! But immediately, Winkler jumped in with a reassuring stat.

Winkler said, “One out of five children [have it].”

“It’s more common then, I didn’t know that,” Clarkson responded.

“She’s in the tribe,” Winkler said.
