Country Superstar Jake Owen, and his wife Lacey Buchanan, will welcome a baby girl this November! The happy couple shared the news exclusively with PEOPLE.
“We actually found out Lacey was pregnant after I had asked her dad for his permission,” the country crooner 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.”
“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.”
Adds Buchanan: “We didn’t want to go public with it until we found out if it was a boy or a girl. The pregnancy was just something we wanted to keep for ourselves for a little while.”
Owen indicated that he & Lacey thought they were having a baby boy based on the Chinese Birth Calendar, “So when the technician said it was a girl, were were like, ‘Are you sure?’” he recalls. “She said she was as sure as she could be.”
Jake adds, “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!”
