Jake Owen and Lacey Buchanan welcome their first child, a baby boy, on Thanksgiving Day named Olive Pearl.
“Today is the greatest day of my life,” he said on Twitter, sharing a picture of himself with his daughter. “Welcome Olive Pearl Owen. 6lbs 3 oz Turkey Baby!!! Happy Thanksgiving.”
In sharing his and his wife’s excitement with People, he said through a rep, “We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her.”
She’s going by Pearl in honor of Owen’s late godmother, he told the magazine.
The 31-year-old recording artist proposed to Buchanan while on stage in front of his hometown crowd in Vero Beach, Florida, during his annual charity event on April 7, 2012.
Exactly one month later they got married in the same town. Olive Pearl Owen was born in Nashville, TN.
