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

04/03/2016 at 08:00 PM ET

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 Rubin Singer dress 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!'”

No sleep deprivation here!

Charles Kelley and wife Cassie crushed the exhausted new parents stereotype when they made a super glam arrival at the ACM Awards Sunday in Las Vegas.

The glowing couple, who welcomed their first child, son Ward Charles, on Feb. 11, are reveling in their night out. And though Cassie’s loving having a baby boy, she was clearly thinking pink when it came to her awards show attire, donning a light pink fringed frock and a beaming smile on the red carpet.

Jana Kramer Gets Real About Being a New Mom: ‘I’m Not Quite Sure When I Brushed My Teeth Last’

03/29/2016 at 11:15 PM ET

Jana Kramer has been a mom for two months now — she and husband Michael Caussin welcomed daughter Jolie Rae in January.

And all things considered, the country singer, 32, says she’s taken to motherhood a lot better than she (and her pals!) thought.

“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,’ ” Kramer tells PEOPLE exclusively.

But thankfully, the “Said No One Ever” singer explains that isn’t the case at all. “Being a mom is the most incredible feeling in the world,” says Kramer. “I always wanted to be a mom. I’m so happy!”

PEOPLE caught up with our blogger to talk about everything from breastfeeding and late nights to the upcoming ACM Awards and a much-needed date night.

Why Dierks Bentley Thinks a Ballet Lesson Would Be Good for Luke Bryan

03/29/2016 at 10:15 PM ET

As two of country’s top acts, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley have a lot in common. But when the longtime friends get together, talk turns to family rather than fame.

“We’ve had this similar trajectory of life and family,” says Bentley, 40. “That’s always the biggest bond for us — being married and having kids. That’s the real stuff.”

The pair, who will be hosting the ACM Awards together on Sunday, married within a year of one another (Bentley in 2005 and Bryan in 2006) and both had their first kids in 2008.

Why Dierks Bentley Will ‘Absolutely Not’ Have More Kids

04/03/2014 at 11:00 PM ET

Dierks Bentley may be one of country music’s hottest stars (he just scored his 11th No. 1 song with “I Hold On”), but the new dad’s role is reversed when he’s at home.

According to Bentley, he’s the fan and it’s his kids — daughters Evie, 5, and Jordan, 3, and son Knox, 5 months — that are the real superstars.

“Me and [my wife] Cassidy will sit on the floor while the girls put on a performance, usually to the Frozen soundtrack, and it’s unbelievable,” he tells PEOPLE Country.

“Evie knows every word. Knox is there in my lap laughing like crazy — he thinks his sisters are the funniest people in the entire world.”
