LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian may have been famously married to other people when they fell in love and started a torrid affair in 2009, but in an exclusive interview with Life & Style, the couple reveal they have told Eddie’s children all about the affair.
“We’ve had discussions with them about the whole situation,” Eddie says in the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now, of their honesty with Mason, 11, and Jake, 7, about their infidelity. “They understand more than you think they do,” LeAnn adds.
Being part of a blended family can be challenging, but LeAnn and Eddie found a way to make it work: therapy. Eddie tells the mag when he and LeAnn first got together, they went to counseling “to figure out how to put the kids first, to make sure they’re stable.” LeAnn’s sure it's helped, and she’s a doting stepmom to his kids. “We are always bettering ourselves,” she notes in the interview, “and our marriage.”
