Singer/songwriter Jewel and her husband, Ty Murray, welcomed a son, Kase, on July 11th at 7 p.m. CST. The baby, weighing in at 7 lbs. 6 oz., is the first child for the couple, who married in the Bahamas in 2008. Jewel and Ty are over the moon about their new addition, stating to People.com, "We are overcome with happiness... it really is as great as everyone told us it would be, better even!"
"Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world," an ecstatic Jewel revealed.
The singer and host of Bravo's reality show Platinum Hit found out she was pregnant the first day of the series' taping. She stated, "I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. It was so hard to keep it a secret."
After many years of struggling to conceive, upon learning she was pregnant, Murray released a statement, "We are so excited to be expecting our first baby. We always knew we wanted to have a child and this time in our lives feels right."
Jewel and Murray live on a 2,200 acre farm in Stephenville, Texas. The singer has always dreamed of having a child with Murray whom she once called, "My soulmate, he's a really good guy." She cheered him on when he hot-footed his way through Dancing With the Stars and he stood by her as she averted tragedy when she was hit by a fire truck at five months pregnant.
Jewel has been working on a children's album due out in August, titled The Merry Goes 'Round.
