Jake Owen’s Daughter Born on Thanksgiving Day

Jake Owen and wife Lacey welcomed the Thanksgiving Day arrival of their first child, daughter Olive Pearl, who was born Thursday (Nov. 22) in Nashville. Weighing 6 pounds 3 ounces, she will go by her middle name in honor of Owen’s godmother who passed away in July just months after the newlyweds found out they were expecting. “Lacey and I are so excited to start our own family,” Owen said in a statement issued by his publicist. “We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her.” The singer-songwriter returns to the road next week during CMT on Tour Jake Owen: The Summer Never Ends 2012 with sold-out shows on Nov. 29-30 at Chicago’s House of Blues.
