Who is Jana Kramer’s Husband and How Many Kids do They Have?

According to Jana Kramer’s Instagram bio, she is a self-proclaimed actress, singer, mom, wife, podcast host, and business owner. She is best known for her recurring role as Alex Dupre on the hit television series One Tree Hill.

At 36 years of age, Kramer has an impressive resume of television appearances and movie roles. She has released two country music albums and placed fourth in season 23 of Dancing With The Stars.

Kramer’s first country music single was ironically called “I Won’t Give Up.” It seems that may just be the anthem for the rocky relationship she is experiencing with her current husband.

In 2004, Kramer became the victim of domestic abuse with her then-husband Michael Gambino. After only two weeks of dating, the 19-year-old married him in an impromptu Las Vegas ceremony. He was 36.

The beatings and verbal abuse started before the ink dried on the marriage certificate. Kramer later told several media outlets that she felt ashamed of the situation she put herself in and didn’t know how to get out of it.

In August of 2005, Gambino choked his wife, leaving her for dead outside their home. He was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to six years in prison. He was released in 2010, and in 2012 committed suicide.

Kramer told People that when she found out Gambino was dead, she was relieved that she “didn’t have to worry about him anymore.”

In 2009, Kramer met fellow actor Johnathon Schaech on the set of the movie Prom Night. They were married in July of 2010 and separated one short month later.

In 2012, she started dating Brantley Gilbert, a country music singer she met at the CMT Music Awards. They were engaged in January of 2013 but broke up in August before they made it to the altar.

It appeared the third time was a charm in August of 2014 when Kramer met NFL player Mike Caussin on Twitter. Caussin played as a tight end in the NFL from 2010 to 2014 for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, and Washington Redskins.

How long Jana Kramer and her husband have been together

Kramer and Caussin started dating in August of 2014. They got engaged four months later on Kramer’s 31st birthday.

In May of 2015, the lovesick couple married at a private outdoor ceremony in Virginia. They separated for a short time in 2016, but got back together and renewed their wedding vows in December of 2017.

Their relationship has gone through many ups and downs, but Kramer claims their marriage has “grown stronger” despite the many problems they have experienced.

Today is a tough one. Our podcast episode that aired this morning was one we almost didn’t let air at all. Up until a day ago mike and I wanted to pull the episode completely and just not have an episode for today because it was that heavy for us. Honestly the day we recorded I wanted nothing to do with “work”. I wanted to text our producer and make up some excuse why we couldn’t record. The thing though is because Mike and I work together the show must go on and I realize we can’t just cancel things because we are in a bad spot. So instead I put my big girl pants on and started to record with mike after a very long and intense 24hours of not talking to each other. In the beginning of the ep I truly tried to put the acting chops on and play cool but it’s evident as the episode went on that didn’t happen. We decided to open the door into what happened and woah did we let it all out. Those of you may not understand the trauma and the pain around what we talked about and openly shared so please be nice and know we ended up keeping the episode because we hope it can help. See that’s the thing. None of this has been easy with our shares but we just hope along the way we are able to help others out there not feel so alone. Reality is no matter what you’ve been through marriage can be a difficult walk especially with added triggers and pain…but know this, ur not alone in that walk and we are here rooting y’all on. Be kind to us as honestly we are embarrassed by how fresh and raw this episode was. Also. Because the podcast didn’t end great…today we are good, and have grown stronger from it. See that’s the thing, if you’re both willing to fight you can get stronger on the other side. Love y’all and really appreciate the support. #bekindpls

In August of 2016, Kramer discovered Caussin was cheating on her. He checked into rehab to battle his problems with sex addiction. Kramer thought Caussin had conquered his demons, but in October of 2019, she found a photograph of a topless woman on his cell phone.

On the couple’s popular podcast, Whine Down w/ Jana Kramer and Michael Caussin, they revealed all the sordid details of his extramarital affairs and addiction to sex.

How many kids they have together

The couple has two children together. Their daughter, Jolie Rae Caussin, was born on January 31, 2016. She will be 4-years-old this month. Their son, Jace Joseph Caussin, is one, born on November 29, 2018.

It looks like Kramer may have finally had enough of Caussin’s lying and cheating. She spent New Year’s Eve deleting pictures of him from her Instagram account and removing his name from their podcast.

She posted a vague message saying “2019. Ur coming to a very interesting end….and for now, all I have to say is…Time heals all wounds.”
