Country music star Jake Owen had a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving Day, as he welcomed his first child with wife Lacey into the world, CMT News reports. Jake and Lacey named their daughter Olive Pearl and confirmed that she would go by her middle name, in honour of her grandmother, who recently passed away, in July.

In a statement issued by Jake’s publicist, the couple who wed in May, in Vero Beach, Florida, said “Lacey and I are so excited to start our own family. We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her.” Jake had better make the most of the time that he can spend with his wife and daughter over these next few days, as he’s scheduled to hit the road and get back on tour next week. That’s got to be a tough call for a guy that’s just welcomed a beautiful, 6 pound 3 ounce healthy baby girl into the world, now, hasn’t it?

Jake will head out on tour on his ‘The Summer Never Ends 2012’ Tour. He’s already sold out two shows at the Chicago House of Blues on November 29 and 30. He released his ‘Endless Summer’ EP back in September 2012, which reached number two on the US country music charts.
