Jennifer Nettles loves her most important job and that of course is being ‘Mom’ to her 3-year-old son Magnus, whom she calls a ‘threenager for sure!‘
Nettles says her son Magnus who turned three in December keeps her on her toes and sounds like he is like most toddlers his age, a funny little creature who already has a little personality of his own!
“He is a ‘threenager’ for sure. There are moments where he can go from being completely happy and pleasant to all the sudden breaking down into a heap on the floor just because the dinosaur fell over. I mean, it’s pretty amazing to watch their little emotional synapses connect.”
The more of Magnus’ personality that develops and the more that Jennifer gets to know her son, the more she falls in love with him. She says, “Some people say, ‘Oh, I fell in love from the time I saw them.’ No, I didn’t. I felt instinctive and protective and completely nurturing, but I didn’t know him. He is his own person and the more I get to know him the more in love with him I absolutely am.”
As for Magnus’ personality, she says, “He is shy, he’s quiet until he really warms up and I can’t wait to see what he’s going to do in life. And definitely this far, especially with the drama, I can tell he’s passionate, so it’s a lot of fun.”
Jennifer just wrapped up the CMT Next Women of Country Tour, but she’ll continue touring through June, promoting her new album, Playing with Fire, which comes out on June 13th, and will feature her latest single, “Unlove You.”
