Jewel, 37, gave birth to 7 lbs., 6 oz. baby boy Kase Townes Murray on Monday night, July 11, at 7 p.m in Texas with rodeo star hubby Ty Murray by her side! “Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world,” Jewel tells People. “We are overcome with happiness – it really is as great as everyone told us it would be – better even!” Wonderful news!
Kase Townes is the first child for the couple, who married in 2008 in a beach ceremony in the Bahamas after dating for 10 years.
The co-host of Bravo‘s Platinum Hit struggled for two years to conceive until she finally learned she was expecting while on the set of the new hit reality show. And although most of her pregnancy was smooth sailing, Jewel did get into a scary car crash in March when she was five months pregnant, but she and her unborn baby were unharmed. And now, Kase is finally here!
New mommy Jewel will release her children’s album, The Merry Goes ‘Round, in August. How exciting! Congrats to the new parents!
