LeAnn Rimes admits her and hubby Eddie Cibrian always put the kids – Mason (7) and Jake (4) first, even at their wedding.
The couple consulted a therapist ahead of time to make sure the kids would be okay with the big day.
Eddie explained to website People.com:
We wanted to make sure LeAnn and my wedding was not only ours, but their party too. The kids come first in everything we do. They were beyond excited to celebrate us all coming together as a family.
It was really important for us to figure out how to explain it. And they were great. They were super excited and wanted to know what they could do.
The couple made sure the kids enjoyed themselves at the wedding, setting up a table for them with two of their friends, which had a ‘Star Wars’ theme.
I’ve always felt an overwhelming sense of responsibility to them. But in that moment when I looked down at them, when we were saying our vows, it became more real than it had ever been. They don’t have to be my blood children to be truly loved.”
