Hot Mama! Jana Kramer Stuns in First Post-Baby Red Carpet Appearance at ACM Awards

Jana Kramer is red hot.

On Sunday, the country singer hit the red carpet at the 51st annual Academy of Country Music Awards, marking her first appearance since giving birth to daughter Jolie Rae in January.

Donning a┬áRubin Singer┬ádress and diamond jewels from D’Orazio & Associates, Kramer, 32, smiled alongside husband Mike Caussin at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on country’s big night.

“I have about three piles of Spanx on me right now,” she confessed to Entertainment Tonight. “I’m just like, ‘How many Spanx can I put in this dress?’ It’s hard at first getting used to the new, postpartum bod. But I’ve been working out a bunch and just trying to be confident and be like, ‘You know what, I’m a mom and I’m embracing the new me!'”

Jolie, 9 weeks, even got in on the event from home! “Momma and daddy aren’t the only ones who dressed up for the ACM Awards! Jolie’s first red carpet!” Kramer Instagrammed Sunday night.

The star showed off her look once again when she took the stage with Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller to announce song of the year, which went to Chris Stapleton‘s “Nobody to Blame.” For Kramer, dressing to the nines has become a special occasion.


“I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty excited for the ACM Awards. I haven’t felt that pretty! I don’t wear anything nice anymore, I have spit-up on me constantly,” the first-time mom exclusively told PEOPLE of her exciting new chapter in March.

Still, throughout her journey into motherhood, Kramer said she been keeping it cool.

“All of my friends have been like, ‘Yeah, don’t take this the wrong way. We totally thought that you were going to be super stressed out, basically have a mental breakdown,'” she said.

But as it turns out, “Being a mom is the most incredible feeling in the world,” she shared. “I always wanted to be a mom. I’m so happy!”

And her husband Caussin has been there every step of the way.

“Mike is so hands-on,” Kramer explained. “I have zero worries about him taking care of her. He’s the best. We have this little baby app on our phone and we both go on there and log when she’s fed, when she peed last … he’s on top of that.”

They have the exact same face. They look like twins.

I guess when it comes to going to an awards show, she has the time to brush her teeth and take a shower.

Omg seriously you need an app to take care of your kid? Unreal! Why are you at an awards show, which you can obviously find the time to clean up for that, when you have a new baby at home? It’s more important you be with your baby than at an awards show. When you are on your death bed are you going to wish you had been at more awards show or that you spent more time with your kid?

To the person that is chastising Jana for going to an awards show (btw, really??), it’s like going out to dinner and a movie with your husband. Same difference. What is the big outrage in this? It’s healthy and important to give not only yourself, but your baby, a little respite. Stop the shaming for something that is perfectly fine to do!
Do you really think the baby is going to feel neglected for her parents being gone for a couple of hours. Is this really a “death bed” worthy scenario? Hilarious!

Lorrie, the helicopter mom vibes are strong with you. Wow.

These two look like brother and sisters.
