'One Tree Hill' star Jana Kramer and husband Mike Caussin welcome 'rainbow' baby boy to family after miscarriages
The star took to Instagram to share a picture of her newborn Jace Joseph Caussin along with her husband Mike Caussin and thanked family, friends and everyone who supported them
'One Tree Hill' alum and country singer Jana Kramer has welcomed a baby boy into the world! She announced the big news through Instagram on Thursday. The little one is named Jace Joseph Caussin.
Jana shared a touching picture of her newborn baby alongside her husband Mike Caussin. The caption read "Welcome to the world Jace Joseph Caussin. Our hearts are so full. Thank you to all of our friends and family.. and all of you who have supported Mike and I, and our growing family." Kramer is already mom to her two-year-old daughter Jolie, reports Fox News.
The star first announced her pregnancy in June where she wrote, "Surprise! We have a rainbow baby on the way and couldn't be more excited! Jolie is going to be a big sister & we're becoming a family of 4!"
A 'rainbow baby' is a term used for a baby born after a miscarriage, stillborn or neonatal death, and is called a 'rainbow' because rainbows almost always come after rainy or stormy weather. A few months before sharing the news of her second pregnancy, Jana had opened about her miscarriages in the past, reports EOnline. "Today I am 1-3. I debated posting this for the exact reason why it's a silent struggle. I don't want I'm sorry or sympathy. I just don't want to feel alone. And I know I'm not," she wrote alongside a photo of the sonogram.
"This, unfortunately, isn't my first loss. When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don't tell many, we have to suffer silently... and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it's not now."
Kramer bounced back from her difficult situation and was able to conceive her second child. Her miscarriages brought the couple closer together, as they helped each other deal with the pain. They even renewed their vows in December last year.
Kramer posted several photos of the vow renewal and wrote, "2017........you broke my heart, you broke me down, you made me question everything, but damn did you make me strong. You taught me patience, you taught me family was everything. You made me believe not only in myself but the power of forgiveness. You turned me into the woman I always wanted to be. I have NO clue what 2018 has in store for me but I've never been more ready to live day by day and enjoy each day as it comes at me."
Kramer and Caussin, a former NFL player, married in May 2015 but separated in August 2016 before reconciling.
