The singer and her rodeo star husband are going to be parents! It’s time for workaholic, Jewel, to take a break.
Get ready to do some bump watching, HollyMoms. Jewel and her rodeo star husband Ty Murray are going to be first-time parents! The singer, who is already in her second trimester, decided that it was time to share the happy news because she didn’t want to alarm the cast and crew of her new Bravo show Going Platinum!
“I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!” Jewel, 36, tells People. “It was so hard to keep it a secret. I was worried I’d start throwing up on set and everyone would be like, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant.’” The couple, who married in the Bahamas in 2008, have been looking forward to becoming parents. “We’re so excited to be expecting our first baby,” says Ty, 41. “We always knew we wanted to have a child and this time in our lives feels right.”
Jewel and Ty have been trying to conceive since they tied the knot, but with their busy schedules, the timing just wasn’t right. “I have always been a workaholic,” Jewel admits, “so I had to learn how to slow down and take care of myself in a different way.”
The parents-to-be live on a 2,200 acre-ranch in Texas so there’s plenty of space for their little one to roam around! And they’ve already begun remodeling to fit their new addition. They’re converting the guest room into a baby nursery! “I’m trying to be in the moment and really enjoy my pregnancy,” says the singer, who is working on a new album. “I feel really lucky.” We have a feeling the baby will inspire Jewel’s future work. We can’t wait to hear about all her pregnancy happenings!
