June 12, 2023
Jana Kramer is pregnant for the third time!
The actress and country singer, who is already the mother of two children – Jolie and Jace – is expecting her first baby with fiance Allan Russell. The exciting news comes after the “One Tree Hill” alum took to her podcast to let fans know that Russell popped the question during a scenic night out at the new house they share.
Jana Kramer’s pregnancy was unexpected for her and Allan Russell
Kramer and Russell are expecting their first child together after six months of dating and less than a month after getting engaged. The 39-year-old mother-to-be shared the news exclusively with PEOPLE on an image of a positive result about your home pregnancy test. Speaking to the outlet, the Soccer Mom Madam star happily exclaimed:
“I didn’t think it would happen again, to be honest. I’ve been through a lot, so it was a really nice thing.”
“I let it all sink in. It’s everything I wanted and more. Allan was so sweet. She wrote me this little note: “You deserve a happy ending,” added the mother of two.
While the decision seems rushed, Kramer explained that he and Russell — who is already the father of a son — started talking about expanding their family earlier this year.. In the words of the “I Got the Boy” singer:
“I’ve already had a miscarriage, so I didn’t even know if it was possible.” I think, yes, it would be nice if we could create something because I love this man.”
Nevertheless, he continued to explain to get pregnant “that would be the silver lining to everything that happened”, she didn’t know if she could get pregnant again, it affected her mood. Ultimately, Kramer and Russell decided to give the singer “a month to try” before her 40th birthday, which seemed like all the universe needed to give them what they wanted.
“I had a metallic taste in my mouth,” Kramer recalled of the moment she suspected she and the former football player were attending the iHeartRadio Music Awards during a trip to Los Angeles in March. She continued:
“I felt that with both of my other children (pregnancies). So I went to the store and got my Clearblue test. She wrote that she was pregnant and we just started crying.
Despite the sweet situation, the mother-to-be waited until early May to break the news to her daughter, who also shared her hopes for another sibling. Seven-year-old Jolie’s enthusiasm doubled when Russell got down on one knee to propose to his mother a few weeks later. He reports on the story, The Blast noted that Kramer told him to “Whine Down with Jana Kramer” listeners:
“It was a wonderful night, the kids and I all sat on the steps porch and just looked at the view. And he said my name and I got up or whatever and then he got down on one knee and Jolie just started jumping up and down. It was the cutest thing ever; it’s like he knew what was going on.”
The Academy of Country Music Award winner has no plans to “pin” her kids out of Nashville
The explosion reported that the “Voices” singer opened up about her long-distance relationship with Russell and their plans for the future on another episode of her podcast. At the time, she revealed that while she would love nothing more than to move to Scotland to be with the 42-year-old, she can’t because of her children, declaring:
“Now I can’t move to England with my two children. I don’t think that’s fair, at the age they are, with my ex and everything, so what can you do?”
She then elaborated that living in the same place was a big part of her and her father’s plans, revealing: “And also about his job, it’s one of those things where he’s a football coach, so he works in England, maybe he could work here in the United States. So I think the goal would be to be in the same place.”
However, Kramer has expressed her disinterest in moving her children to the UK, claiming that she and Russell are considering other options, such as the soon-to-be husband visiting Nashville during the off months.
