After a long struggle to conceive, country star Jana Kramer finally welcomed her second child on Thursday.
The “Dancing With the Stars” alum, who is married to former football player Mike Caussin, had her first child in January 2016.
But after baby Jolie Rae, the songstress struggled to conceive again and nearly lost hope that she’d be able to grow her family.
Kramer went through three miscarriages and failed to get pregnant with IVF. She told People:
“It’s hard because it’s like ‘Have hope,’ but when you’re in that moment, hope is the hardest to find. It’s so hard not to [stress] when you want a family so bad.”
In June, the mom confirmed that their fertility struggles had finally come to an end. The two were able to conceive a baby naturally.
The following month, she revealed that they were expecting a baby boy. And now, he’s finally here.
Jace Joseph Caussin arrived on Thursday morning, weighing a healthy seven pounds, 12 ounces.

In 2016, the 34-year-old country crooner revealed that her husband cheated on her with multiple women, Us Weekly reported.
They’ve been working on rebuilding their relationship ever since, and Kramer said that Jace is a piece of the puzzle. She told People in August:
“Babies and having other kids don’t save a marriage but for us, this baby truly has been a savior for us in a way that we’ve really done our work and gotten dirty. We’re bringing a child into this world [so] we have to be there for each other and continue to do our own recovery work for him and me and be in a place where we’re bringing [our son] into the best environment possible.”
Now that baby Jace is here, the family is hopefully on the right track.
Congrats to the happy parents!
