Jana Kramer breaks down in tears and admits she’s ‘exhausted’ as son, 19 months, sobs and refuses to sleep

COUNTRY singer Jana Kramer broke down in tears from “exhaustion” after being unable to calm down her crying son Jace, 19 months, and get him to sleep.

Aside from Jace, Jana also shares daughter Jolie, 4, with her husband of five years, Mike Caussin.

The two have been very open about their marriage issues, as Mike says he struggles from “sex addiction," as well as their journey as parents on their podcast, but the mother of two rarely posts about “the hard stuff” on Instagram.

The One Tree Hill actress, 36, changed that over the weekend when she shared a photo of herself with tears streaming down her face.

Jana captioned the emotional photo: “This is motherhood. Exhausted, heart strings breaking and crying in a dark room just wanting their baby to fall asleep because you’re exhausted too.

“I have never heard these kinds of screams from Jace and it’s literally BREAKING my heart.

“Apparently it’s the 18-21 sleep regression. (I had his ears checked and all are good now).

The Dancing with the Stars alum continued: “His molars all 4 are coming in. And he throws his lovey and wubs out of the crib.

“I used to go back in to give him but then it became this game. I’ve been told not to go back in to give it to him but hearing him so upset, well has me like this.

“#motherhood please please mommas tell me it’ll be better soon?! And any tips?!? Also I only share this because I need the mom support.”

Singer and mother of three Jessie James Decker commented: “I’ve had many moments like this. It’s ok to take a moment and just cry. We all in this together.”

The Bachelor alum Rebecca Tilley wrote that while she’s “obviously not a mom,” she’s “hoping it gets better” for Jana and let the actress know that she’s loved.

Actress-singer Kimberly Caldwell wrote: “I hear you mama. I hear you.”

After the post had been up for a few hours, Jana took to her Instagram Stories to apologize for the “mom cry,” saying that she felt “embarrassed” for sharing it.

She continued: “But in that moment, I remember an interview I did with @catandnat and they said, ‘Why do you normally only share the hard stuff on your podcast?’

“Was a valid question and I didn’t have a good answer.

“Maybe I thought y’all don’t want to see me crying or whatever, but tonight I remembered that question and though…well…here ya go.”

Jana met husband Mike, a former American football tight end, on Twitter in late 2014, and they wed in May 2015.

She gave birth to their daughter, Jolie, in January 2016 and then had their son, Jace, in November 2018.
