Jewel Expecting Boy This Summer, Murray Doing Flips!

Jewel Expecting Boy – Summer child. Jewel is expecting a baby boy this summer and Ty Murray is dancing at the thought of being a father. It will be the first child for Jewel and the couple are already building a nersery.

The baby is due this summer. Jewel admits that she would’ve been happy either way, but having her first child is more exciting. The couple had to wait to find out the sex, which was a long time, according to Murray.

“We would have been happy either way, of course, but we are so excited to behaving a little boy,” Jewel told People magazine.

The couple married in the Bahamas in 2008 and reportedly have been trying to have a baby ever since. Having also waited to find out the sex of their child, they can now finish remodeling the nursery in their 2,200-acre ranch in Texas.

“I have to admit, I was doing a little dance on our way out of the doctor’s office when we found out!” says Murray, 41, a rodeo star who has competed on “Dancing With The Stars.”

The singer learned she was pregnant on the same day she started work on Bravo’s reality series “Going Platinum,” CBSNews.com reports. Jewel is also reportedly working a children’s album, following her recent release of a collection of children’s songs titled “Lullaby” in 2009.
