Country star Jana Kramer and her husband Mike Causson have recently split for undisclosed reasons, according to sources close to the couple.
As reported by Entertainment Tonight, the “Circles” singer is back to being single again after a year of marriage with former NFL tight end Mike Caussin.
A source close to Kramer said that the singer was “devastated” over the break up, but is “trying to put on a brave face and do what’s best for her daughter.”
In terms of putting on a brave face, Kramer has been doing an excellent job of it, as she looked genuinely excited in her recent Snapchat video. In the video, Jana informed her followers that she’s getting ready for her upcoming guest appearance on Chelsea Handler’s show on Netflix.
“I’m so excited, yay!” Kramer said in one of the videos. “Getting ready for the Chelsea Handler show, it’s going to be so much fun.”
While it’s true that Jana is seen wearing her wedding band in the Snapchat videos, it bears noting that the singer hasn’t posted any photos of Caussin or made mention of him on social media for over a month. Their last photo together was posted on Instagram seven weeks ago.
“Thankful for time spent with my family, and for my amazing hubby who helps remind me that we’re #doingood, even when being a parent is a tough job! @MinuteMaid #Sponsored ” Kramer wrote in the Instagram post.
Judging from her caption in the photo, it looks like the falling out between the couple occurred just recently. While the reason for the split has been kept under wraps, the fact that Caussin is currently being treated in a rehabilitation center suggests a familiar scenario that many celebrity couples have faced in the past.
Kramer, 32, and Cussin, 29, started dating in August 2014. After four months, Caussin popped the question, and they got engaged. They tied the knot on May 22. They welcomed their daughter Jolie Rae in January the following year.
“We feel extremely blessed to have found each other and are so fortunate to have shared our day with close friends and family,” the two told US Weekly at the time of their wedding. “We look forward to sharing our lives together.”
In April, Jana Kramer made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth to Jolie Rae at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
In an interview with ET, Kramer complimented her husband for his “hands-on” approach to parenting and then talked about getting herself back into shape since giving birth.
“Husband is amazing on diaper duty — he’s an absolute sweetheart, he’s extremely hands-on, and I feel confident leaving and him knowing exactly what to do,” she said. “Most guys are like, ‘I don’t know what to do,’ but he’s super hands-on and absolutely amazing.”
“But I’ve been working out a bunch and just trying to be confident and be like, ‘You know what, I’m a mom and I’m embracing the new me!'” Kramer added.
Jana admits that she had her struggles as a first-time mom. Despite her initial anxieties at being a mother, Kramer told People that her maternal instinct naturally took over as soon as Jolie Rae was born.
“I had so much anxiety before she was born! I couldn’t remember the last time I changed a diaper, and I was like, ‘How do you know what cry is what?’ I wasn’t really around newborns a lot so I was extremely freaked out.
The second she came out and we got home, it was like, ‘Oh I got this'” The mom instinct just totally kicked in and you really do realize which cry is which. It’s the craziest thing. All of a sudden I’m like, “I’m the mom. I got this.”
Before her relationship with Caussin, Kramer got engaged to fellow country singer Brantley Gilbert in January 2013. They never had the chance to tie the knot as they split in August that same year.
Jana Kramer had been married twice before, first to Michael Gambino in 2004 and to actor Johnathon Schaech from 2010 to 2011.
