Congratulations are in order today for new parents Jewel Kilcher and Ty Murray. The pair welcomed their first baby, Kase Townes Murray, on Monday at 7 pm CST in Texas. People magazine is reporting that their son weighed in at 7 lbs, 6 oz.
Jewel had problems trying to conceive in the past, and had a scary moment when she was hit by a firetruck back in March. She was five months pregnant at the time. She had found out she was expecting on the set of the first day of “Platinum Hit” on BRAVO.
“Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world. We are overcome with happiness, it really is as great as everyone told us it would be, better even!” – Jewel to People.com
Kase is the first child for the couple, who were married in the Bahamas in 2008. Jewel will be releasing a children’s album, titled “The Merry Goes ‘Round” in August.
They aren’t the only celebrities celebrating this week, as Victoria and David Beckham as well as Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy welcomed their own additions to the family yesterday.
