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!

The glowing couple, who welcomed their first child, son Ward Charles, on Feb. 11, are reveling in their night out.

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.

Carrie Underwood Says Son Isaiah Is Her Biggest Accomplishment: He’s the ‘Little Sunshine in My World’

02/15/2016 at 06:30 PM ET

She may have just kicked off her Storyteller tour, but Carrie Underwood is already in need of a night off.

And what better way to celebrate than while walking the red carpet at Monday’s Grammy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

“We’re in random places sometimes and we’re just stuck with whatever we have. We’ve been really great and staying fit and being healthy while we’re on the road, making the best with what we’ve got,” the “Heartbeat” singer told E! News.

“But this is my little treat to myself this time. This is such a huge tour, we’re out for so long — I need some motivation.”

Charles Kelley Considered Taking Private Plane to the Grammys, But Hasn’t Been Out of His Robe in Two Days

02/15/2016 at 05:15 PM ET

It’s been a wild ride for Charles Kelley: Not only is “The Driver” singer a first-time father, but he’s also up for his first Grammy nomination as a solo artist for his hit new single.

But if he wins best country duo/group performance on Monday, the new dad will not be on hand to accept the award.

The decision comes after Kelley and his wife Cassie welcomed son Ward Charles on Thursday — six days ahead of his original due date. In the week leading up to his son’s birth, Kelley, 34, told PEOPLE attending music’s biggest night was still up in the air.

“I told [Cassie], ‘I do not have to go,’ and she goes, ‘No, I want you to go, Charles. This project means the world to you — this is a big moment for you,’ ” he said.

“If I do go to the Grammys, I’m going to just have to bite the bullet and have a little private plane waiting in the wings.”
