OFFSTAGE: Jake Owen on the Beauty of Baby Bumps

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Thank heaven for little girls. That’s what I told Jake Owen the last time I saw him, after he and his wife Lacey had announced that they were expecting a daughter. And now he tells CMT Radio that the last trimester of pregnancy is a cool time in their lives. “It’s the last few months before we have an addition to our family — and it’s three of us,” he said. I hope Mr. and Mrs. Owen are getting lots of date nights in and sleeping in late every chance they get because once that baby girl arrives, there will be less just-Jake-and-Lacey time. Until then, though, Owen seems to be enjoying the view of Lacey and her baby bump. “She looks great,” he said. “She’s just happy and smiley. There’s something beautiful about a woman that’s pregnant.”
