LeAnn Rimes has enjoyed being a stepmom to Eddie Cibrian's two sons, Mason, 13, and Jake, 9, but is she ready to expand her family?
The 33-year-old singer admitted on ITV1's "Loose Women" on Friday that it wasn't easy to jump into a parenting role at 28. "It takes a while, we're not exempt because we're in the public eye," she explained. "It was quite the adjustment, it is for any blended family."
Now Rimes, who got into the music business at age 9, seems to share a special bond with the 43-year-old actor's boys. "They're fun," she bragged. "I didn't have a childhood, so it's amazing how much they're teaching me about having fun."
As for whether the couple plans to have a baby of their own together, Rimes doesn't appear to be in any kind of rush. "Oh of course that's going to come up! We practice a lot!" she quipped. "I'll take my time."
Last year, Rimes also told ET that she's not looking to have a baby anytime soon, but did fantasize a bit about what it might be like. "I think I would probably have a Baby Bjorn, and singing with the kid," LeAnn joked. "It's hard to put them down. They're so cute."
This is the second marriage for both Cibrian and Rimes, who both divorced their then-spouses not long after starring in the 2009 TV movie, "Northern Lights." They were married in April 2011.
While it was assumed the two met while filming, Rimes revealed on her five-year wedding anniversary that she had actually met her husband long before that. Sharing a flashback photo of herself with Cibrian, she wrote: "I was 14, he was 23. We don't remember meeting. He found this in the garage while going through boxes. Fourteen years later, who knew we'd meet again."
