Jana Kramer Confirms She’s Dating Soccer Coach Allan Russell – PEOPLE
Jana Kramer has confirmed the identity of the new man in her life.
On Sunday, the 39-year-old country music songstress went Instagram official with Norwich City Football Club coach and former soccer player Allan Russell.
She made the announcement by sharing a sweet photo of herself and the Scot cozying up to one another as Russell, 42, wraps his arm around Kramer and smiles directly at the camera.
Kramer captioned the post, which was tagged in downtown Nashville, “Back where it all started… Also this is so us…trying to take a photo 😂.”
Immediately after their Instagram debut went live, many of the Dancing with the Stars alum’s celebrity friends began to chime in, including Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise alum Christen Whitney who commented, “obsessed 😍.”
Kramer first hinted that she was in a new relationship during the Jan. 9. episode of her Whine Down with Jana Kramer podcast.
In the episode, which also includes in the description that Kramer had “some exciting news to share,” she revealed that she has an “international boyfriend.”
She explained “I don’t know if this is my forever person. But, like, I’m not going to push away love just because I’ve been hurt before. I’m going to embrace it. I’m going to have fun. And if it doesn’t work out, well, you know what, I’m gonna learn a lot of lessons. And I had a lot of fun along the way.”
The pair met via a dating app, but the singer was not sure at first that she wanted to date someone from another country. Russell lives in the UK with his team based in England.
