The “I Got the Boy” singer, 32, gave birth to daughter Jolie Rae on Sunday, January 31. The baby girl’s arrival came just hours after Kramer was nominated for an ACM Award in the Female Vocalist of the Year category.
“What a whirlwind of great surprises and wonderful news,” Kramer said in a statement to Us. “I’m overwhelmed with joy after welcoming my beautiful baby girl into the world AND finding out I’ve been nominated for an ACM Award!”
Us broke the news in May 2015 that Kramer and Caussin, 28, had married in Charlottesville, Virginia, after more than a year of dating. Earlier this month, the One Tree Hill alum opened up about her pregnancy.
“I wasn’t sure how I’d look as I got bigger, but pregnancy makes me feel so pretty,” she told Fit Pregnancy magazine at the time. “Michael says he’s put on eight pounds of sympathy weight, but I think it’s more like ten.”
She also revealed that she’s heading back to work soon after giving birth. “It’s hard, but I’ve just had to suck it up. I’ve told my management that six weeks after the baby is born, I’ll be ready to go back on the road. Mama’s gotta work,” she said. “I just hope my daughter forgives me for all the things I get wrong along the way!”
