Jake Owen To Become A Dad This Fall
Newlywed Jake Owen isn't wasting any time in starting a family. The country star tells "People" he and his wife, Lacey Buchanan, have their first child on the way. The couple knows they're expecting a girl, who's due in November. Jake and Lacey just got married on May 7th -- exactly one month after Owen popped the question with an on-stage proposal during a concert in his Florida hometown. But Jake says they learned Lacey was expecting after he'd asked for her father's blessing in making Lacey his bride.
Owen adds that while the baby news was "a bonus to the engagement," they intentionally waited to reveal Lacey's pregnancy. He explains that they wanted time to celebrate their wedding, and they didn't want people thinking the baby was the reason they were getting married. Jake says he had "no doubt" from the moment he met Lacey that she was the one for him. Jake and Lacey have known each other since 2009. Lacey was cast to appear in the video to Owen's hit "Eight Second Ride," and they were introduced during the shoot.
