Jana Kramer and her husband of 15 months have separated, the couple announced this week.
Kramer’s husband, former NFL player Mike Caussin, is heading to rehab for “undisclosed reasons,” while Kramer is reportedly focusing on her 7-month-old daughter Jolie, whom she shares with Caussin.
“This has been difficult for Jana but her priority is being there for Jolie,” a source told People magazine about the split.
This was 32-year-old Kramer’s third marriage; she was previously wed to her Prom Night co-star Johnathon Schaech, as well as Michael Gambino. Before marrying Caussin, she was engaged to Brantley Gilbert. She married Caussin in May of 2015 near his hometown of Springfield, Massachusetts. The now-estranged couple was living in Nashville before their split.
Amid news of their split came news that Caussin has become an NFL free agent after the Washington Redskins placed him on injured reserve following a knee injury. In practice with other NFL teams, Caussin tore his ACL and injured his hip.
While Caussin was playing football, actress-turned-country singer Kramer was on tour with her infant daughter. She opened up to People about what it was like to tour with such a young baby in tow.
“I have Jolie out on the road with me most of the time, and to do what I love and be able to combine both is just a pretty great feeling,” she said. “I look back and say, ‘Wow, this is what I’ve always wanted,’ and it’s come true — I’m a mom and a touring musician. It can’t get any better than that.”
