Singer Kimberly Schlapman's Married Life With Stephen Schlapman-How She Managed To Fall In Love Again After The Death Of Her First Husband
The country music singer, Kimberly Schlapman is living a blissful life with her beloved husband Stephen Schlapman.
The pair has been married for more than a decade (since 2006) and is happy in their lives with their two children, Daisy Pearl, 10 and Dolly Grace who was adopted in 2017.
Though the pair seems happy and so in love now, life was not always the same for them. Kimberly was not sure whether she would ever fall in love again after losing her partner but when she met Stephen her life changed.
He brought joy, happiness and more than that a hope in Kimberly's life. A hope to be happy again and to be in love again.
She said in an interview,
"I wasn't planning on falling in love, at all. I didn't want to ... I wasn't sure that I ever would. So, my husband now and I were just really good friends, and after my late husband died, all my friends were calling me, all the time. Just checking up on me. He was just an old friend. We had known each other for about six years, and he started calling me just like everybody else did. But he started calling me more than everybody else did."
She also added:
"We had both been through similar losses. He hadn't lost a mate, but he had lost a close friend, so we kind of bonded over that."
She also shared how she eventually fell for him.
"I was shocked; I remember when I first realized that I was having feelings, I just thought, 'OK, this is so weird. What is this? I haven't felt this in a long, long time. But eventually I allowed myself, and it's been the most beautiful gift of my life. It pulled me out of the deepest hole that I've ever been in and healed me."
Kim also says that he lets her talk about her ex-husband and never minds if she brings anything from past. He understands that was the biggest part of Kim's life and he respects that.
As of now, Kim has moved on and is living a blissful family life that she deserves. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
