Jana Kramer has finally confirmed her relationship with Ian Schinelli months after the romance rumors involving them circulated online. 

The 38-year-old singer-actress poured her heart out on Instagram Tuesday as she formally introduced her new beau to the world. Kramer shared a series of PDA-filled photos and videos on the social media platform and accompanied her post with a lengthy message about finding her happiness. 

“Sometimes you just have to stop fighting it and listen to your heart. I don’t know what the future holds and honestly who does… Everyday [sic] I continue to heal and I know there is still lots of work to do, but damn it feels really nice to find happiness along the way,” she wrote.

The “One Tree Hill” star continued, “To find someone who doesn’t look at your scars as a challenge or problem but rather helps you hold them and stands there to encourage you with love, strength and empathy along the way.”

A day before, Kramer already hinted at their romance when she posted a snap of the 36-year-old fitness trainer doing some work on her house in an Instagram Story. “I found my rental husband,” she playfully wrote in the caption, according to Us Weekly

Rumors linking them have been going on for months since they have been openly sharing photos and videos showing the two of them together on social media. 

During her “Whine Down” podcast Monday, the “Voices” songstress clarified that she wasn’t ready to go fully public with whatever was going on between them. But she sang a different tune the following day when she officially confirmed their romance to her fans. 

Before dating the former Navy Seal, Kramer was nursing a broken heart following her split from her husband of six years, Mike Caussin. The couple announced their breakup in April 2021. The exes share two children, Jolie, 5, and Jace, 3. 

Speaking about the possibility of finding love again after her broken marriage, the “Soccer Mom Madam” star told Entertainment Tonight in September: “I do believe that there is someone out there that will see everything that I do, and I know I'm a great mom. I know I work really hard. I have a lot of love to give and I just hope that one day, that's cherished.”
