LeAnn Rimes: “A Family is a Family”


When country superstar LeAnn Rimes married ‘Playboy Club’ star Eddie Cibrian, she did not just become a wife, she became an instant mother, albeit a ‘stepmother’ — to Eddie’s two sons with ex-wife Brandi Glanville, Mason, 7, and Jake, 4.

But, in a blog posted by the 29-year-old singer-actress she says there’s nothing “step” about her role in the boys’ lives. She writes, “Step. Stepmother, Stepfather, Stepchildren — the word ‘step’ can take on such a connotation to so many in our society.

A family is a family. In my eyes. There’s no ‘step’ about it.”
“It’s not easy being a stepparent, taking on a mother or father role in your new blended family and household. It can be incredibly intimidating,” she adds.

Moreover, Rimes says she treats Eddie’s sons “as if they are my own. Eddie has always encouraged me to look at us as a family, and a part of our family are the two beautiful boys that we share with their mother and hopefully one day another wonderful man.”

“One thing that I know is, I will never replace their mother,” she adds. “I would never try. I will however love them with all I have and do everything in my power to help raise them in a loving, safe and proper environment.”

Rimes admits she knows that “society will always call me a stepmom,” but says “In our house, in our family, we remove the ‘step.’ We really are all… simply family.”
