I despised the character Jana Kramer played on former hit TV show "One Tree Hill," so the way I completely fell in love with her on Instagram totally caught me off guard. And ever since the new mom posted her first pic of baby girl Jolie Rae three weeks ago, my girl crush has pretty much skyrocketed.
But it was yesterday's post of her serenading Jolie with a 90s cover that totally made her the epitome of #NewMomGoals in my book. Kramer posted a video of herself coolly covering the Des'ree hit "Ya Gotta Be" while barefoot and bouncing her little babe in her lap—and we just cannot stop watching.
Maybe it's the lighting. Or the swaying back and forth to the strum of the guitar. Or her use of the hashtag #rockabyebaby. But Kramer seems to be the living, breathing embodiment of those lyrics she's singing, "You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser." And we are just loving the whole "look at me, I just had a baby last month and I'm already back at work but in a chill, laid-back kinda way" vibe!
Meanwhile, Kramer—who released her latest record, Thirty-One, last fall, and performed throughout much of her pregnancy—was recently nominated for an ACM award for Female Vocalist of the Year. Now the new mom is getting ready to hit the road again, touring with Rascal Flatts this April.
Talk about a multitasking mama! Congrats Jana... So much to look forward to!
