It’s been both heartbreaking and inspiring to watch Jana Kramer rise like a phoenix from the ashes after separating from husband Michael Caussin. Little by little, more details of the painful split, including his admittance to rehab for sex addiction, have been made public. Then Jana revealed her own history of a prior toxic relationship during her first marriage with Michael Gambino. You have to wonder where the petite, beautiful and talented brunette finds the strength, not just to get up every morning, but to compete every week on “Dancing With the Stars.”
On Oct. 10 in a sweet Instagram post, she shared exactly where her fortitude comes from. Posting a photo of her sweet-faced baby girl Jolie Rae, Jana wrote: “To my precious little monkey…momma loves you so much. You have pieced together every broken part of me and have given me more strength than I ever thought possible. I’m so blessed God chose me to be your Mom. I hope you love Momma’s dance tonight. It’s for you. I love you Jolie Rae!”
To my precious little monkey….momma loves you so much. You have pieced together every broken part of me and have given me more strength than I ever thought was possible. I'm so blessed God chose me to be your Mom. I hope you love Momma's dance tonight. It's for you. I love you Jolie Rae!!!! #2016 #mostmemorableyear #mygirl @dancingabc #dwts (photo by @brookekellyphotography)
Jana and professional partner Gleb Savchenko narrowly escaped elimination during last week’s “Dancing With the Stars” after landing in the bottom two. This week’s episode on Oct. 10 has the dancers performing to a song with the theme “Most Memorable Year,” with Jana and Gleb set to dance a contemporary routine. Jana often hashtags her photos of Jolie with #MyGirl, so the pair could be dancing to the Temptations hit, but she’s also a country girl so Martina McBride’s “In My Daughter’s Eyes” or Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” would also be amazing.
We can’t wait to see what Jana has in store.
