jake owen baby thanksgiving Jake Owen welcomes daughter Olive Pearl on Thanksgiving DayCountry music star Jake Owen is now the proud father of his first child. The 31-year-old welcomed his newborn daughter Olive Pearl on Thanksgiving Day, and calls her his “turkey baby.”

“Today is the greatest day of my life. Welcome Olive Pearl Owen. 6lbs 3 oz Turkey Baby!!! Happy Thanksgiving,” Owen tweeted after her birth, along with a picture of him holding her.

Olive is the first child for Owen and his wife, model Lacey Buchanan. The two tied the knot on May 7 in Vero Beach, Fla., a month after they were engaged. It was revealed in July that Buchanan was already pregnant.

“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,” Owen told People at the time. “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.”
