Country star Gretchen Wilson is a mom first

11/01/2006 at 09:36 AM ET

Redneck_woman In country star Gretchen Wilson‘s new memoir, Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life, she shares some of her most memorable moments, including the life changing birth of her daughter, Grace Frances, with ex-boyfriend  Mike Penner.

"The bottom line is, Grace is my life and music is my talent and passion. … I’m a mom first, a singer second," she says in her book.

Gretchen also reflects on how she felt the moment she found out she was pregnant.

"Initially, I felt downright miserable," she says. "I saw myself as fat and ugly and pregnant. At the same time, I started feeling that my dream that lead me to Nashville was slowly slipping away."

After speaking with loved ones who provided her with encouraging words, the singer felt much better. And of course the moment she saw her daughter, Gretchen says her ecstasy outweighed any doubts she may have had.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
