jewel ty murray kase people Jewel, Ty Murray introduce son Kase TownesSinger Jewel and husband Ty Murray, cowboy and former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant, have debuted pictures of their new baby Kase Townes, who was born July 11.

Jewel tells People about wanting a natural birth, but ending up with an emergency c-section.

“They always say, ‘Make a plan and God laughs,’ right? We wanted a natural birth and I was committed to that. I studied hypnobirthing,” says Jewel. But she adds, “I feel lucky to be pregnant in a modern age where they could tell he wasn’t well during those [Braxton Hicks] contractions,” which is what led to the emergency surgery.

“We felt thankful that we had good doctors and a good hospital nearby by, and that everything was OK,” she continues. “I’m so lucky that we have a healthy baby boy. That’s all I cared about.”

“I felt like somebody went to a cabinet, pulled out a perfect baby and handed him over. It’s overwhelming,” Ty adds.
