LeAnn Rimes Defends Calling Her Boyfriend's Sons "Her Boys"

LeAnn Rimes has taken some heat through her Twitter account this week for referring to her boyfriend, Eddie Cibrian’s, sons as “her boys”.   Mason (7) and Jake (3) have spent a lot of time with their dad and LeAnn this summer and LeAnn has Tweeted about it quite often.  One fan wrote:

“Please remember those ‘boys’ have a Mother,”  “It seems you don’t give credit to that. Hapnd to me not a good feeling.”

The boys’ mother, Brandi Glanville, divorced Eddie after it came to light that LeAnn and Eddie were reportedly involved in an affair while filming a TV movie together.

LeAnn responded to the fan:

“I do, but it doesn’t mean I can’t share our happiness. Please remember I’m a part of their lives too. Seems people don’t give credit to that.”

A divorce is tough on children and even more so when the parents start dating again.  Makes for a tricky situation.  Hopefully they can all be a team and make the situation work for the sake of the boys.

    Uh yeah #4 – you have a STEPMOTHER and STEPFATHER. I assume this is because they MARRIED your parents!! Big difference between a steppatent referring to a child as theirs and a girfriend. (one who was having an affair with their father while he was living with and married to their mother no less) These women show NO respect to the mother’s of the chilldren they claim to love. And the kids will figure it out one day, Probably after dad has had 10 more girlfriends come and go…… wonder how Leann will feel in five years when she sees “her boys” on vacation with daddy’ latest girlfriend

    To be honest, I have both a stepmother and a stepfather, and I would be a bit miffed if they didn’t call me their daughter! They know I have both a father and a mother, but they too are big parts of my life. Calling them “my boys” indicates that she wants to treat them as her own, and that if she one day has biological kids, she will treat the children the same. It doesn’t diminish the role of their biological mother.

    Ugh, the ‘Giselle syndrome’ – this irks me so much. She can dress it up whatever way she wants but they are not, and never will be, her boys. I’m sure she can be many wonderful things to her boyfriend’s children, but she will never be their mother. If she wants to be a mother she should have a child of her own.

    Leann- you broke up two marriages and are NOT a mother. Don’t refer to your boyfriend’s kids as “your boys.” I am really disgusted by her behavior.

    That is mean for LeAnn. She enjoyed the company of her husband’s sons and yet some fans were irked about it. I think there will be no problem with the kids mother since nothing can take the fact that she is the mother of those boys less she be thankful that her sons is well taken cared of.
