Jana Kramer and husband Michael Caussin have been open about the ups and downs of their marriage, from infidelity to miscarriages to addiction. But as the couple prepares for the birth of their second child, Kramer says the thought of bringing new life into the world has been greatly beneficial for their relationship.

"Babies and having other kids don’t save a marriage but for us, this baby truly has been a savior for us in a way that we’ve really done our work and gotten dirty," Kramer admits in a new People magazine interview.

Just last month, the couple revealed that they are expecting a boy, who is sure to fit in quite nicely with big sister Jolie Rae. Above all, Kramer says it's important for her to ensure the stability within the environment at home, no matter what.

“We’re bringing a child into this world [so] we have to be there for each other and continue to do our own recovery work for him and me and be in a place where we’re bringing [our son] into the best environment possible,” she says.

And it would appear these two are on the right track, with Kramer telling US Weekly that Caussin has been especially doting as of late.

"The other day he’s like, ‘Hey, I called the babysitter. We’re going to get our nails done, we’re going to get a massage and go have dinner; have some us time,” Kramer says. "He’s remembering that we still need that, too."
