It’s totally natural to tell your kids about your affair, right? The answer is a resounding yes if you ask LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian. After their torrid affair on the set of Northern Lights in 2009 — the one that split up two marriages — the pair is now revealing that they have come clean to Eddie and Brandi Glanville’s kids about how they actually met.


“We’ve had discussions with them about the whole situation,” Eddie revealed to Life & Style about telling 11-year-old Mason and 7-year-old Jake about how their stepmom came into the picture. “They understand more than you think they do.”

If you’re curious how Eddie and LeAnn decided to tell the kids about how they met, you probably won’t be surprised to find out that it was all thanks to therapy. Eddie told the mag he and LeAnn went to counseling “to figure out how to put the kids first, to make sure they’re stable.”

Besides deciding not to have the kids on either The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or LeAnn & Eddie, this is probably the best thing Eddie has done for his kids. But don’t discount all that the country crooner has done for Mason and Jake as well. “We are always bettering ourselves,” LeAnn said in the interview. “And our marriage.” Sounds like these two have parenting on lock, doesn’t it?
