Opening up about the unique choice for their son's name, Kramer told the publication, "The name Roman really isn't inspired by anyone, it's just a strong name that we both love, but James (his middle name) was both of our Grandpa's names, so that was a nod to them."

Kramer was quite open throughout her pregnancy journey, revealing that she was "doing a C-section earlier" as a result of a "growing fibroid." She also discussed a health scare that saw her land in the hospital during what was supposed to be her babymoon with Russell.

As reported, the "I Got The Boy" singer detailed her trip to the hospital with a touching video of her unborn son’s steady heartbeat and several photos. "Part one….Well. Our babymoon didn’t go as planned, but there were some lessons learned. First off and most important, baby is good," she began her message.

Kramer told fans she refused to pay attention to her health which led to her hospitalization. "The back pain I’ve been dealing with for weeks wasn’t just back pain. Lesson number one…don’t just brush off pain, because it can be more serious than you think," she wrote. "So many times (moms especially) just brush off pain because we are the last ones to take care of ourselves."

The 39-year-old explained that she disregarded her symptoms as discomfort caused by her pregnancy even though it kept worsening. However, she received a timely message from a fan. "Then someone very sweet in my dms sent me a message that it could possibly be my kidney. (I’ve since thanked her for her dm)," she recalled.

After ignoring the pain some more, Kramer finally went to the hospital and discovered it was the truth. "Long story short, it was a bad bacterial infection that got into the kidneys. This resulted in a 2-day stay in hospital and antibiotics because I let it get passed where I should have. So. Lesson. Listen to ur body. Ur not a baby or inconveniencing people. If u hurt, talk to ur doctor," the entertainer advised.
