Jewel is officially a mommy now!
The singer and her husband, professional bull rider Ty Murray, welcomed a son named Kase Townes Murray into the world Monday night (Jul 11) in Texas, their rep revealed to People exclusively.
“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!”
The 36-year-old Grammy-nominated singer had struggled to conceive in the past, and was hit by a fire track back in March when she was only 5 months pregnant. Thankfully, she and her unborn baby were unharmed and she was quickly released from the hospital.
Jewel and Ty will celebrate their 3rd wedding anniversary in August of this year.
