Country singer and actress Jana Kramer’s unborn baby has saved her marriage to sportsman Mike Caussin.
The star and the former American footballer split in 2016 after he cheated on her, but they reconciled last year (17) and gave their union another go.
And Jana admits that when she fell pregnant in early 2018, the news seemed to bring the couple closer.
“Babies and having other kids don’t save a marriage but for us, this baby truly has been a saviour for us in a way that we’ve really done our work and gotten dirty,” she tells People. “We’re bringing a child into this world (so) we have to be there for each other and continue to do our own recovery work for him and me and be in a place where we’re bringing him (our son) into the best environment possible.”
She reveals that she and Mike, who already share two-year-old daughter Jolie, have been working hard to get past his cheating scandal and rebuild their relationship, with Caussin undergoing rehab treatment and sex addiction classes to save his marriage.
“Just give it time, and two people have to work,” his wife adds. “If one person is doing the work and the other one isn’t, then it most likely isn’t going to work. If two people are doing the work then there could be a great silver lining and that’s what we’re seeing.
“Mike, for the longest time, wasn’t putting in the work, but now when two people actually truly come together and put in the work, then it’s a huge change.”
The singer/actress recently confessed she is struggling to keep her hands off her man as her pregnancy hormones have kicked into overdrive.
The former One Tree Hill star admitted her libido has started to get out of control: “I feel the most sexy right now,” she told Us Weekly. “I want to have sex all the time. My husband doesn’t as much.”
She blames the fact she’s having a boy for wanting to jump on the retired sportsman whenever she can.
“I’ve got some testosterone going through my body,” she explained, “so I’m like, ‘Let’s go!'”
Jana is due to give birth to the couple’s son in November (18).
