Jana Kramer is pregnant. The “I Got The Boy” country music star is expecting her first child with her husband, football player Michael Caussin, early next year, People is reporting.
“Being a mom will be the greatest job I’ll ever have. I feel like the luckiest girl alive to be on this journey with the love of my life.”
It’s been a whirlwind romance for Jana and her husband, who plays tight end in the NFL and, as of this post, hasn’t signed with a team for the upcoming season. The couple got engaged last December, got married this May, and are now pregnant. That means that, in the span of a year, the couple will have gotten engaged, gotten married, and put a bun in the oven, according to Us Magazine.
“We feel extremely blessed to have found each other and are so fortunate to have shared our day with close friends and family. We look forward to sharing our lives together.We are beyond thrilled to be entering the path of parenthood together. Words can not describe how happy and blessed we feel to become parents. “
For his part, proud papa Michael is also excited about Jana’s pregnancy. The 28-year-old football player also issued a statement about the happy news.
“I am so incredibly excited about becoming a father. For me it is just another dream come true and I cannot imagine tackling parenthood with anyone else but Jana.”
Tackling. See what he did there?
Jana Kramer, 31, got her start as an actress, working her way up from low-budget horror movies and bit TV spots, to playing the role of Alex Dupre on One Tree Hill for three years. While One Tree Hill was winding down, Jana branched out into music, releasing a self-titled debut album, which spawned the hit “Whiskey,” which peaked at No. 3 on the charts.
Michael Caussin, meanwhile, has had a not-particularly-memorable career in the NFL, playing stints at tight end for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, and Washington Redskins.
It seems that, for Jana, pregnancy isn’t all smiles: despite her joy at being pregnant, she’s also coping with a problem that seems to plague a lot of pregnant moms.
