While she was afraid of the medical complications she might face, Kramer was open to other options. “The other side of it is, we can surrogate. We can do IVF. I did IVF with the two kids. Obviously, I lost those ones but then got pregnant naturally, from being on the IVF medicine,” she shared during the podcast referring to her two past miscarriages.
Kramer added that she suggested going with IVF and surrogacy but then she would miss out on enjoying pregnancy “with someone I know is being faithful and loves me.” The singer added, “I have two beautiful, healthy children. I don’t need another one” but thought that a baby with Russell would be “so beautiful, so silver lining, so the glue to the blended family.
“Kramer has a 7-year-old daughter Jolie and a 4-year-old son Jace with former husband Mike Caussin. Meanwhile, Russell is the father to a 16-year-old son from a past relationship. The singer further added that though she loved the idea of having a baby with the football player, she also considered that she wants to travel and enjoy herself in her 40s now that her kids are getting older and it’s getting easier. Kramer finally decided to give it a try.
“If we try this month, it’ll be before my 40th birthday, and maybe it’s just a God thing,” she said she told Russell. “But in my mind, it was a one-and-done — try one month and if it’s meant to be, it’s going to happen,” she concluded. “Beyond blessed and grateful for this baby to be a part of our story. I never thought I would see the word pregnant again on a test, but thankful for @clearblue for making it as clear as ever,” she captioned the announcement.
