It seems like just a few weeks ago that we were congratulating Jake Owen and Lacy Buchanan on their wedding. In fact, it was just a few days before that we mentioned that the couple were engaged –when Jake popped the question at one of his concerts. Oh wait — all that was just a few weeks ago. Well now, congratulations are again in order, as Jake and Lacy have announced officially to People.com that they are expecting their first child in November. And, that it will be a girl.
“We actually found out Lacey was pregnant after I had asked her dad for his permission,” the singer 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.” [Source]
Jake continues, “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.”
“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!”
Now when we all see Jake at the Appalachian Fair in Gray, Tenn., in August… we can go with baby gift in hand! We even know to get something ‘pink and cute’.Congratulations, Jake and Lacy! Wishing you all the very best!
