AceShowbiz - Country singer and actress Jana Kramer was shocked to learn she is expecting a son after becoming convinced she was having another girl.
The former One Tree Hill star and her husband, Mike Caussin, went public with their pregnancy news last month, revealing they were preparing to welcome a sibling for their two-year-old daughter Jolie, and now Jana has announced the unborn child is a baby boy.
The 34-year-old, who reconciled with Mike last year (17) after separating in 2016, shared the news with listeners on her podcast, Whine Down with Jana Kramer, on Monday, July 23, and told fans the couple had already picked out the tot's name.
Jana explained they had initially settled on Charlie if the baby was a girl, and Grayson or Carter if it was a boy, but they had to rethink the first moniker once a friend named her new son Gray.
"Boy names are so hard...," the mother-to-be moaned. "I feel like there's so many Carters now. And I love how Jolie's name (is) a little different - it's not really that popular - and so we came up with a few".
Jana is keeping their new chosen name a secret until the baby's arrival, but told listeners Jett and Jeter John were also considered before being axed.
She has since had to get used to the fact that she's having a son, because she was "hands down" sure she was carrying a girl - and the star was more than happy at the thought of having two daughters.
"I was sick, I was craving fruit. I felt gross, which is how I felt with Jolie," Jana recalled of the early stages of her pregnancy. "So I was like, 'I'm definitely having a girl.' And secretly, I also wanted a girl too. I wanted to have a sister for Jolie".
Jana also took to Instagram to share a sweet photo of their gender reveal, in which she, Mike, and Jolie were showered with blue confetti.
"Genuine shock," she captioned the image. "We were convinced it was a girl....but we are over the moon that it’s a BOY...".
The news emerges shortly after Jana revealed she had previously suffered a series of miscarriages during her journey to parenthood, which included undergoing in vitro fertilisation treatment, before falling pregnant naturally with little Jolie and again with her unborn son.
