Jana Kramer and her husband, former NFL player Michael Caussin, welcomed their first child on Sunday, January 31st, a daughter named Jolie Rae Caussin.

Kramer shared a photo of the newborn on her Instagram, captioning the photo: “Welcome to the world our sweet princess Jolie Rae Caussin.  Momma and daddy love you so much.”

Jana had blogged for People throughout her pregnancy and told the magazine, “Holding my healthy and beautiful baby girl in my arms is something that’s truly indescribable.  Michael and I are so thankful for this wonderful blessing.”

A few hours after becoming a mom, the “I Got the Boy” singer had yet another reason to celebrate when she was nominated for an ACM Award in the Female Vocalist of the Year category!  This is Jana’s third ACM nomination; she won the ACM award for “Top New Female Artist” in 2013.  The ACM Awards are scheduled for Sunday, April 3, 2016.

Jennifer is a graduate of Fresno State University. She spent a number of years working for non-profits before becoming a full-time stay-at-home mother. She currently lives in Central California with her husband, two children, and two codependent cats.
