Jana Kramer Says She’s Engaged After 6 Months of Dating After Split From Cheating Ex-Husband

Jana Kramer announced on Thursday that she is engaged to former footballer Allan Russell after just six and a half months of dating.

After teasing that she “had a few things I didn’t talk about,” she announced that Russell, 42, had proposed to her.

“He took me with the kids – we had people during the day – like a little pool party one summer. And he took me with the kids, he said it was a beautiful night , let’s go for a walk,” she said on her “Whine Down” podcast.

She said they walked to her new Tennessee home, which is due for completion in August, and sat on the porch steps.

“It was a really beautiful night and me and the kids were all…looking at the view because the view is, I mean, just beautiful,” the country star, 39, explained.

Russell then said his name and the next thing she knew he was on one knee.

“And Jolie just started jumping up and down,” Kramer said of her 7-year-old daughter, who she shares with ex-husband Mike Caussin. The former couple also share son Jace, 4.

“It was like the cutest thing ever. It’s like she knew what was going on” before Russell said anything, Kramer continued. “She started jumping up and down, and then she was like, ‘You’re getting married!’ And then he said — I kind of passed out at that point. He said some things… and then we both started crying.

The “I Got the Boy” singer said the proposal was “very sentimental” because they were on her new front porch “and a fresh start, and that was good.”

“It was perfect,” she added.


Kramer said Caussin loved Russell and had previously asked her if she thought they would get engaged.

And while she didn’t have a timeline for their engagement before it happened, she knew “this is my person. I trust her, there’s no anxiety attached to that.”

Jolie also ended up telling Caussin that she was engaged while the 7-year-old was Facetiming with her dad.

“He’s like ‘Ahh, that’s fine,'” Kramer said. “I would have liked to tell her, but I also don’t want Jolie to have to hide secrets from her father.”

The two then spoke to each other in private and Caussin told him “I’m really happy for you and Allan is a great guy.”

She said she started crying “because he said, ‘Of all people, you deserve to have someone who loves you and respects you and you deserve that. He’s like, ‘After everything I’ve put you through, you deserve this more than anyone.’ It meant so much to me that he said that.”

Last year, Kramer said Caussin, whom she divorced in 2021, cheated on her with more than 13 women during their six-year marriage.


Kramer said she and Russell were in no “rush” and would likely wed within the next two years.
