Why Jana Kramer Shares Mothering Moments

“This Is Part of the Ride,” She Says

Jana Kramer is about to celebrate her very first Mother’s Day as a parent.

And just like any other mother of a 3-month-old, Kramer is not shy about posting photos of her new baby girl Jolie constantly.

While some new celebrity parents try to keep their children out of the public eye, Kramer told me she sees things a little differently.

“Being a mom is by far the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me,” she said. “And I don’t want to not share that.

“I want to show the good days and the bad days,” she added. “My fans have been on the ride with me since the beginning, and this is part of the ride.”

The first photo she shared was 13 weeks ago, welcoming her sweet princess Jolie Rae Caussin.

Another one showed Jolie watching hockey on the tour bus TV. “Jolie is a Red Wings fan!!!! #hometeam”

Kramer is even OK with showing the often-unglamorous life of a mother. She recently posted a photo of herself in a t-shirt covered with spit-up.

The most recent shot was of Kramer with her husband and Jolie and Simba, one of the Lion King characters they ran into on a Disney trip.

The spit-up picture aside, it looks like and sounds like Jolie is an angel and that there are way more good days than bad.

“She is sleeping through the night. And she’s like this little person now. She has so much expression. The other day she found her feet, and it was the cutest thing ever,” Kramer said. “She was staring at her feet and wiggling them and started touching them. It was adorable.”

She doesn’t know exactly how she’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day, because her husband is keeping it a secret. But now that she is a mom, through and through, Kramer has a maternal intuition about it.

“I know it will be amazing,” she said. “Just having a whole day with my husband and baby girl.”
