The world of celebrities welcomes one more bundle of joy: it’s a boy for Jewel and husband Ty Murray. The singer gave birth to the couple’s first child on Monday, Access Hollywood informs.
It appears that 2011 is the year of the Hollywood Baby Boom. And let’s make it clear, it’s not just Hollywood. Celebrities all over the world welcome baby boys and baby girls. This time it is Jewel who is the lucky mom. She and her husband, Ty Murray, who is a professional bull rider, are the proud parents of a baby boy named Kase Townes. The couple made the announcement on the singer’s website. “Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world” she writes. “We are overcome with happiness – it really is as great as everyone told us it would be – better even.”
The baby was born at 7 in the evening and he weight 7 lbs., 6 oz. Kase came after the couple struggled to have a baby for two years. Jewel found out that she was pregnant in January, on her first day to the reality competition for songwriting, “Going Platinum”. “I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!” She was worried about keeping the news a secret, saying that “I was worried I’d start throwing up on set and everyone would be like, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant.'”
Jewel Kilcher, 37, and Ty Murray, 41, married in 2008 in Bahamas, after dating for ten years. Jewel has also been romantically linked to actor Sean Penn and musician Steve Poltz. Ty Murray is a nine-time world champion at rodeo. He has made several appearances in movies (as himself) – Walker Texas Ranger and CSI, in reality TV series – Fast Cars and Superstars: The Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race. In 2007 he had his own TV show called Ty Murray’s Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge in which he had to teach several celebrities the art of rodeo.
