Jana Kramer is the proud mom of two children; newborn Jace Joseph, born on Nov. 29, and Jolie Rae, who turns 3 later this month. While the singer is used to juggling career directions in acting and music, as well as other endeavors, she says being a mother is what has taught her patience.

“Being a mom has changed me in so many ways," she tells People. "I had zero patience before kids. I love singing, I love acting, I love doing my podcast and creating things, but being a mom is what truly fulfills me. It is the best part of my day, even though it’s the most stressful.”

While kids can often take over date night, Kramer says she and husband Mike Caussin work hard to have alone time with each other. While their "intentional time" is important, she admits that their new bundle of joy has been a savior in their relationship.

“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,” Kramer adds.

Kramer and Caussin have been open about working on their marriage since their 2016 separation following Caussin's infidelity. The couple have shared their struggles through Kramer's Whine Down With Jana Kramer podcast as well as their YouTube video series, Have A Seat With Jana and Mike.

“We’re bringing a child into this world. 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,” she concedes.
