Congratulations are in order for Jana Kramer and her brand-spanking-new fiancé Allan Russell — they are expecting their first child together! The “Let It Burn” singer announced she is pregnant with her third baby today, and we couldn’t be happier for her!
“We’ve been keeping another secret from you guys (I promise this is the last Announcement…at least for a little while 🤣),” Kramer teased on Instagram today, “but I’m pregnant!!!!”
She added, “Beyond blessed and grateful for this baby to be a part of our story. I never thought I would see the word pregnant again on a test, but thankful for @clearblue for making it as clear as ever.”
The new baby will join older siblings Jolie, 7, and Jace, 4, who she shares with ex-husband Mike Caussin, and Russell’s 16-year-old son from a previous relationship.
Kramer announced that she was engaged to the English-based soccer coach on an episode of her Whine Down podcast on May 25, per Us Weekly. “It was a really beautiful night sitting on the front porch steps and looking out at the view,” she said. When he “got down on one knee,” her daughter Jolie “just started jumping up and down.”
“It was the cutest thing ever. It’s like, she knew what was happening,” Kramer added. “She was just like, you’re getting married!”
Jana Kramer Shared Her First Maternity Photos
The “I Got The Boy” singer also shared several pictures with Russell, looking at the positive pregnancy test, which you can see HERE.
The PEOPLE-exclusive photos include one shot of Kramer smling up at Russell, one of the Clearblue test that reads “positive” and one of Kramer cradling her baby bump in a fitted sundress. The last photo shows a picture of the whole blended family surrounding Kramer, with the kids boasting big smiles.
Jana Kramer Wanted to Get Pregnant Before She Turned 40
“I didn’t think it would ever happen again, if I’m being honest. I’ve been through a lot, so this has just been a really beautiful thing,” Kramer told PEOPLE. “I’m letting it all sink in. It’s everything I’ve wanted and more. Allan was so sweet. He wrote me this little sticky note saying, ‘You deserve the happy ending.’” Aww!
The country singer, whose book The Next Chapter comes out Oct. 24, added, “I’ve had miscarriages, so I didn’t even know if it was possible. I’m like, yes, it’d be beautiful for us to create something because I love this man. It would be the silver lining with everything that happened, but I’d always get kind of down about it because I didn’t know if I was capable of carrying a pregnancy again.”
“I was like, well, I’m going to be 40 in December, so I was like, we have one month to try. Literally one month.”
Jana Kramer’s Daughter Jolie Is Very Supportive
Kramer also revealed how excited her daughter Jolie is about the baby.
“Every time Allan and I kissed, Jolie’s like, ‘You’re getting married and having a baby! I want a baby brother, baby sister.’ I told her we were pregnant and she was so happy,” Kramer told PEOPLE.
She also described the unique (kinda gross, but also very common) way she realized she was pregnant.
“I had this metallic taste in my mouth,” she told the outlet. “That’s what I felt with both my other kids’ [pregnancies]. So I went to the store and got my Clearblue test. It said pregnant, and we just started crying.”
She Had a ‘Scary’ Beginning to Her Pregnancy
“I was sick with Jolie and I had hyperemesis gravidarum with Jace. I’ve been sick with this one but not as sick as the last two,” Kramer told PEOPLE. “In the beginning of this pregnancy, I was bleeding a lot. It was scary, and I went to the doctor like, ‘I’ve miscarried.’ I actually had a large hemorrhage, so they’d have to monitor me, which has been kind of great because I’ve gotten to see the baby so much. Everything’s good now, thank goodness.”
So far, she hasn’t released details on the baby’s name or sex, but hopefully they will soon. What an exciting time!
