Jana Kramer Says She and Husband Michael Caussin Are ‘Actively Working’ on Marriage
In a recent interview, Jana Kramer opened up about the status of her marriage to football player Michael Caussin. The couple announced their separation a year ago in the midst of a publicity storm surrounding Caussin's infidelity and treatment for sex addiction, but in an appearance on the podcast Mouthing Off with Olivia Caridi, Kramer tells the audience that she and Caussin are putting a full effort into getting their marriage back on track.
“I haven’t made a statement because it’s like, I’m just focusing on our family and trying to figure it out,” the country singer says in the podcast. “It’s day-by-day. So, we’re not divorced; he’s not my estranged husband. He’s very much in my life. He is my husband; legally, he is my husband. I have a ring on my finger. We’re actively working on it.”
Kramer and Caussin got married in 2015 after meeting on Twitter in 2014. They welcomed their first child, Jolie Rae Caussin, in January of 2016. Kramer says that Caussin's role as the father of her child is a motivating factor in making their relationship work.
“It’s hard. Every day. Some days I’m like, 'I can’t do this. I physically can’t do this,’" Kramer admits. "Other days, I’m like, ‘No, fight for it. It’s for our family' ... He’s working really hard, and we both love our little girl. At the end of the day, no matter what, we’ll be amazing parents to our daughter.”
After the couple was photographed in public together this spring at an LA Dodgers game and because Kramer shared an endearing Father's Day post on Instagram, rumors have swirling about Kramer and Caussin's relationship status. Kramer says it's been a process.
“We all have our moments where we question that and have hard times,” Kramer tells Caridi. “But he’s working extremely hard, and he’s so good with Jolie. He’s an incredible dad. And I see that, and I recognize that, and, again, I know how hard he’s working at becoming this better version of himself, but it’s still hard. Trust is a hard thing, when it’s broke, to get back.”
Prior to her marriage to Caussin, Kramer was married to Michael Gambino, who was physically and emotionally abusive. In between those two relationships, she was briefly married to actor Johnathon Schaech, then dated, got engaged to and split from Brantley Gilbert. Kramer recently released a new single "I've Done Love," her first song since she released "Circles" from her 2015 album Thirty One.
