‘One Tree Hill’ Alum Jana Kramer Is Pregnant With Her Second Child

Congrats to the happy couple on their pregnancy!

Former “One Tree Hill” actress Jana Kramer and her husband Mike Caussin have some very special news — they’re expecting their second child!

The proud couple took to Instagram on June 25 to announce the news. Kramer and Caussin have suffered miscarriages in the past, so they were especially thrilled to share this happy news with fans online — and to hopefully provide a bit of hope for all those struggling with infertility.

“Surprise! We have a rainbow baby on the way & couldn’t be more excited! Jolie is going to be a big sister & we’re becoming a family of 4,” Kramer wrote on Instagram:

In a separate Instagram post, she went on to explain her conception journey, with all of its ups and downs, crediting her successful pregnancy to her use of the Ava bracelet, a fertility tracker.

“Those of you that have been following me for a while know that my conception journey hasn’t been the easiest,” she wrote.

I’m so excited to be sharing this with you all. And now I can finally shout from the rooftops how thankful I am for my #avabracelet helping us get pregnant! Those of you that have been following me for a while know that my conception journey hasn’t been the easiest. But then I started using Ava and Ava told me my fertile window was different from when I had thought it was. I trusted it, and we got pregnant on the first cycle with Ava! While you sleep Ava tracks nine different physiological parameters to detect your 5 most fertile days in real time. And I know this is what made the difference that cycle to help us get pregnant can’t recommend it enough.

Considering her past struggles with infertility, and the miscarriages she suffered, Kramer understands just how difficult and isolating it can be when pregnancy doesn’t come easily:

“My body just went through so many hormonal changes and I was like, ‘There are so many women that feel this way right now and they feel alone, too,’” she told Us Weekly. “It’s frustrating, but what I’ve realized is, it’s truly a miracle to have a baby and it’s all in God’s timing and hands. If it’s meant to be, it will be.”

In the end, all of the frustration has been worth it. Because while she’s seen success as an actress and a singer, being a mom means even more to her.

“Motherhood has changed my life for the best,” she told Yahoo, referring to her 2-year-old daughter Jolie. “I’ve always wanted to be a mother. I love acting, I love singing, but I always felt like something was missing. I never really knew what my purpose was, and I honestly didn’t figure out that purpose until I had Jolie.”

And since having Jolie, she’s been eager to grow her family even more.

“I definitely want to expand the family,” she told People just last month. “It’s just in God’s timing. [I] had kind of a rocky road with that.”

Considering how close Kramer already is with her daughter, we just know she’ll rock at being a mother of two. “My favorite part about being a mom is just knowing I’m her mom,” Kramer told Yahoo, referring again to Jolie. “She’s my little girl.”

Congratulations to this soon-to-be family of four!
