Thanksgiving Day turned out to be a birthday celebration for Jake Owen and his wife Lacey Buchanan with the arrival of their 1st child Olive Pearl Owen. Owen posted a photo of his newborn baby girl and the announcement “Today is the greatest day of my life. Welcome Olive Pearl Owen. 6lbs 3 oz Turkey Baby!!! Happy Thanksgiving” on his twitter page to let the world know the happy news. The new Daddy also told People Magazine “Lacey and I are so excited to start our own family. We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her.” Olive’s middle name Pearl is in honor of her father’s Godmother who passed away not long after Jake and Lacey found out they were expecting.
Owen proposed to Lacey Buchanan onstage during a concert and got married in May in his hometown of Vero Beach, Florida during a sunrise ceremony with his twin brother as the best man and Buchanan’s sister as the maid of honor. The couple announced that their baby was on the way in July. Owen told Us “If she’s anything like Lacey she’ll be the most beautiful little soul ever,” Owen tells Us. “I’m so excited.” He also added “Now, we can concentrate on what names will fit our baby girl, and I’m going to stock up on guns and ammunition.”
