Jana Kramer reveals why she hasn’t introduced her children to her new boyfriend as she gets real about her fears of blending families
She is in the throes of a new romance after her divorce from Mike Caussin.
But Jana Kramer is hitting the brakes when it comes to introducing her two children to her new boyfriend.
Speaking on her podcast, Whine Down, Kramer, 39, got real about her fears of blending families with her partner, revealing her concerns of how her children would handle a possible break-up.

While Kramer has yet to reveal who she is dating, she expressed excitement and optimism over the progression of the romance.
However, despite things moving forward in a positive direction between them, she still wanted to tread lightly when it came to introducing everyone.
‘I’ve done a really good job at not introducing the kids to people. And obviously they haven’t met the new boyfriend. Having said that, the boyfriend and I are talking about future thing,’ Jana – who co-parents daughter Jolie Rae, nearly seven, and son Jace Joseph, four, with her ex-husband Mike Caussin – admitted.
‘And in my mind, I’m like, it makes me excited and it also makes me scared for — you just never know, right? And with kids, I don’t want them to be in a place where their ground is not as steady as possible. Like I want them to be so secure, solid foundation, and I’m in charge of that,’ she said.

While Jana admitted she thinks she may have found the ‘love of my life’, there’s also a part of her urging her to rein it in.
‘Sure, I want to believe in this true love. There’s this side of me, one side of me is like “love of my life, I’m so excited. I’m going to get married and I’m gonna have a family.” There’s that piece,’ she said.
‘And the other side is “Jana be real, things happen. This can happen again, oh my gosh.” And so those doubts and fears kind of creep in,’ she continued.

Jana also expressed fears her children may not handle a break-up well.
‘And then always my concern — I don’t care about me, my heart’s been broken a million times, I can deal with another broken heart — my kids, that’s a different story. They’re older now, they understand more now.’
She also expressed concerns over how her partner, who has ‘older’ children, would handle her youngsters.
‘That’s another piece too, because I’m like, “are you sure what you’re signing up for?” You’re coming into a four-year-old and a seven-year-old, they’re my world,’ she said.
Jana has been linked to several men since ending her marriage to Mike, a former pro football player.
She previously admitted to being in an ‘entanglement’ with Bachelorette vet Graham Bunn, and also enjoyed a brief relationship with fitness instructor Ian Schinelli.
