Jana Kramer is officially engaged!
The country star, actress and host of the Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast host posted heartwarming photos with her new fiancé, Scottish soccer star Allan Russell. Kramer, 39, captioned a sweet series of photos on Instagram simply with a heart as she and Russell, 42, beamed with big smiles, showing the gorgeous ring for the first time. Kramer also included a photo of a message Russell wrote for her on post-it notes, which he left on her fridge next to a printed-out Bible verse that her daughter, Jolie, colored. He wrote in all-capital letters: “I love you, you are special and you deserve the happy ending,” with a heart drawn before writing his name at the end. Kramer’s last photo on her Instagram post features her newly-blended family. Russell took the selfie as Kramer posed with her ring, embracing her two young children from her previous marriage: daughter Jolie and son Jace.
“A forever with you just feels right and has done since the day I met you [Jana Kramer] I’m proud to call you my fiancé and cherish every minute we spend together ❤️ I love you my little warrior xxx,” Russell wrote in a caption of his own as he shared a few of the engagement photos.
“Thank you so much for all the love,” Kramer wrote on her Instagram story on Thursday afternoon. “Y’all have been on a JOURNEY with me through all the highs and lows and I’m just so grateful for the support and your kind hearts. I feel so grateful to have y’all as friends.”
Kramer also titled the latest episode of Whine Down with Jana Kramer, which debuted on Thursday (May 25), “Jana’s Engaged Part 1.” The podcast is also where Kramer confirmed in January that she is “not single,” referring to Russell at that time as “my boyfriend” without revealing his name yet. Kramer said at that time of her relationship with her then-mystery man that she’s “just enjoying being happy.” They've now been dating for about six months. Russell popped the question when he accompanied Kramer and her kids on a walk to her new house that she’s constructing, Kramer dished. The proposal was “exactly what I would’ve wanted.”
Since then, Kramer and Russell have posted adorable photos together, and walked the red carpet together at the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards earlier this year at Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California. That’s where she spoke about her romance with Russell, including how the couple maintained a successful long-distance relationship. See the stunning photo of Kramer’s engagement ring here:
