With their personal lives blasted all over the Internet (and now TV), it’s not too hard to find out the unconventional way that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian met — even for the actor’s 7 and 11-year-old sons!
The new reality stars were both married to other people when they got together in 2009. Now, though, they say they plan on being very open with Eddie’s sons (with ex-wife Brandi Glanville) about the situation.
“The kids actually came to us and asked, very nonchalantly over dinner, and Eddie was very honest with them in a way that you can be with a 7-year-old and 11-year-old,” she told Mario Lopez on Extra. “He’s always the first person to say how much he loves me, and they see that in our house, and they feel that. So I think it’s important not to lie to children — they understand way more than you think.”
She added, “We both never want them to come back and say, ‘You weren’t honest with us about this.’ They’re very open with us, which is cool.”
LeAnn and Eddie are currently starring in their VH1 reality show, LeAnn & Eddie, which airs Thursdays at 10:30 pm.
