The Hollywood Baby Boom rolls on! Yesterday Marion Cotillard and Owen Wilson, today it’s Jewel!
The singer confirmed the news to People.com.
“I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!” explained Jewel, who is in her second trimester. “It was so hard to keep it a secret. I was worried I’d start throwing up on set [of my Bravo reality show, 'Going Platinum'] and everyone would be like, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant.’ “
It’ll be the first child for Jewel and her husband, rodeo star Ty Murray, and the couple, who married in 2008 in the Bahamas, admit they’ve been wanting to be parents for a while now.
“I have always been a workaholic, so I had to learn how to slow down and take care of myself in a different way,” she said about starting a family. “I’m trying to be in the moment and really enjoy my pregnancy. I feel really lucky.”
The dad-to-be is equally enthusiastic about expanding their family.
“We’re so excited to be expecting our first baby,” he said. “We always knew we wanted to have a child, and this time in our lives feels right.”
The couple say they are currently remodeling their Texas ranch to accommodate their new baby. In 2009 Jewel released an album of kids songs called Lullaby and she says she now is working on a new collection of children’s tunes.
