Country singer Jake Owen had an exciting Thanksgiving, with his wife, Lacey, giving birth to their first child on Thursday.
Owen broke the news to his fans on Facebook, sharing a photo of his daughter in his arms, notes Taste Of Country. “Today is the greatest day of my life. Welcome Olive Pearl Owen. 6lbs 3 oz Turkey Baby!!! Happy Thanksgiving!” he wrote.
On Twitter, he also tweeted the photo and sent another tweet, writing, “I'm very thankful for many things in my life. My family, my dog, my career and all of you guys. I hope you all are having an amazing day.”
“Lacey and I are so excited to start our own family,” he told People “We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her.”
Owen famously popped the question to Lacey on stage in April, proposing while he sang his hit single “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You.” The move caught Lacey, who appeared in his music videos, by surprise.
They married in May in a beach ceremony.
