Jake Owen is gonna be a daddy! According to People.com, newlyweds Jake Owen and Lacey Buchanan will welcome a baby girl in November. The couple were just wed in this past May after Jake proposed on stage in April.
“We actually found out Lacey was pregnant after I had asked her dad for his permission,” the country crooner tells PEOPLE.
“From the day I met her, there was no doubt in my mind I wanted to marry her, and we always knew we wanted a family.”
“The way we saw it, the baby news was a bonus on top of the engagement, but we didn’t want anyone to think we were getting married because Lacey was pregnant, and we wanted to celebrate our wedding first.”
The couple tried predicting the sex of their bundle of joy using Chinese birth calendars, but all that went out the window when the ultra sound technician gave them the news that what they thought was a he will be a bouncing baby girl.
“Not only do I have a beautiful wife I get to spend my life with, I’m getting a baby too!” he says. “You know with other people’s babies, they’ll say, ‘Do you want to hold the baby?’ And I always am excited to do that, but then you have to give the baby back. Now we get to keep the baby!”
Congrats to the happy couple!
