Jana Kramer is relishing in the excitement of her recent engagement to Allan Russell after six months of dating, but she also had to deal with her ex-husband, Mike Caussin, learning of the news accidentally.

The former One Tree Hill star announced her engagement on Thursday, while speaking on her podcast Whine Down with Jana Kramer.

After sharing the news on both the podcast and on Instagram, she also revealed how her ex, who she shares daughter Jolie, seven, and son Jace, four, learned of her engagement, when their daughter Jolie excitedly told him over FaceTime before Jana could get to it herself.

On her podcast, she recalled the moment her daughter Jolie was FaceTiming Mike, and said: "She's like, 'Guess what, Daddy? Mommy's engaged!' And he's like, 'Aw, that's nice,'" before adding: "I would have liked to have told him, but I also am like, I don't want Jolie to have to keep secrets from her dad."

She further explained: "Then he was like, 'Hey, can I talk to mommy.' So I got the phone and I was like, 'Hello, good day,'" continuing: "And he was like, 'Congratulations, can we talk for a minute?' And I was like, 'Of course.' So I went in the room, we were just dealing with a co-parenting situation we had to figure out. Once we resolved that conversation, then he was like, 'Hey, I'm really happy for you. Allan's a great guy.'"

Jana shared with listeners of her podcast that the moment was definitely bittersweet, and that she couldn't help but get emotional over ex-husband's encouragement and support.
