LeAnn Rimes says that her marriage to second husband Eddie Cibrian is solid because he is her “soul mate.” Moreover, she adds, “Divorce is not an option” for them five years after cheating on their first spouses with each other.
She said of falling in love with Eddie, “I was meant to be with Eddie. Fans felt as though I was their daughter or sister making a big mistake when we got together, because they’ve grown up with me. But we both acted from our hearts and that’s impossible to turn around. Trust me, we both tried. Look, I’ve said ‘I’m sorry’ and made amends.” She recalls of her wedding, “Our wedding was in Malibu at a friend’s house. We had chalkboards for guests to write messages on and I wrote, ‘Thank God we lived through this.’ We fought so hard to be together; there’s a bond between us that I think most people don’t have.”
She adds of staying together, “Eddie is my soulmate – he and I completely get each other. We’re opposites – I want to go shopping; he wants to ride dirt bikes – but we bring out the best in each other. Divorce is not an option for us. Obviously if something horrible happened, I would have to take care of myself, but I don’t see that happening.”
She talks again of having a baby, “I would love to have a kid with Eddie – I hope it has his dimples! I’ve taken care of people my whole life, so for a long time the thought of having a child seemed exhausting, but I don’t feel that way any more. I’ve been working my whole life on the road, and I do wonder, ‘How will I juggle that with a baby? What will have to change? Everything!’ But I don’t want to wait too long. Having Eddie’s kids around has stirred something in me.”
Previously, Brandi Glanville revealed that LeAnn would openly flirt with Eddie while he was still in his first marriage. LeAnn has since admitted she’s told her stepsons about the affair because they’ll find out anyway and she’d rather they hear it from her (she also denies being a “homewrecker” trying to “steal somebody’s kids”). LeAnn has also admitted to staging paparazzi photos with her “bonus boys”. Even though she often calls the same paparazzi “creepy” and “stalker-ish”.
Brandi has said that, although nights alone without her sons drove her to drink, she no longer cares about the affair.
Star Magazine insists, incidentally, that Eddie has several mistresses and has cheated on LeAnn.
