Singer Jewel and husband Ty Murray, who is a nine-time World Champion rodeo cowboy, welcomed their first child on Monday evening in Texas.
Jewel gave birth to a 7 lbs., 6 oz. baby boy, named Kase Townes, at 7 p.m. CST on July 11, 2011.
“Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world,” Jewel said. “We are overcome with happiness – it really is as great as everyone told us it would be – better even!”
The couple announced they were expecting a baby in January.
Jewel, 36, and Ty, 41, got married in 2008 and had been trying to have a baby for two years.
