It was an extra special Thanksgiving for Jake Owen and Lacey Buchanan.
The country crooner, 30, and his model wife, 22, welcomed their first child in Nashville, Tenn. on Thursday (November 22). “Today is the greatest day of my life. Welcome Olive Pearl Owen. 6lbs 3 oz Turkey Baby!!! Happy Thanksgiving,” the proud papa announced via Twitter.
The new parents plan to call their daughter by her middle name, the singer’s rep tells Us Weekly. Baby Pearl is named after the singer’s godmother who died in July.
“Lacey and I are so excited to start our own family,” Owen says in a statement. “We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her.”
The couple wed in the musician’s hometown of Vero Beach, Florida, in May 2012. They met on the set of Owen’s video for Eight Second Ride.
Congratulations to the Buchanan-Owen family!
