Country singer and actress Jana Kramer, best known for her role as Alex Dupre on One Tree Hill, has lived through many ups and downs over the last few years.
Kramer's music career was suddenly taking off, she tied the knot in May 2015 and became a first-time mom the following January. She and her husband, former NFL player Mike Caussin, appeared to be in marital bliss, but in reality, Caussin was allegedly cheating, and later entered rehab for treatment. The pair separated for sometime, but reconciled for the sake of their daughter.
"It’s day-by-day. We’re not divorced, he’s not my estranged husband [and] he’s very much in my life. Legally, he is my husband," Kramer explained on the podcast Mouthing Off. "I have a ring on my finger. It’s hard, every day — some days I’m like, ‘I can’t do this.’ … But other days I’m like, ‘No, fight for it. It’s for our family.’ Cause I’ve given up so easily in the past before, so I really want to sit in the trenches and fight for it."
In addition to "actively working" on her strained relationship, Kramer also appeared on Dancing With the Stars. She was an instant fan favorite, but got eliminated just one week shy of the finale. At the time, she told Rolling Stone that she had started working on new music. However, she had a secret she kept hidden, until now.
Turns out, Kramer was pregnant with her second child, but she kept the news a secret. She admitted that she "wanted to shout it from the rooftop" when she first found out, but based on past experiences she knew that wasn't the best idea.
This week, Kramer took to Instagram to share an update about her pregnancy, but it's a heartbreaking one.
