Jewel Gives Birth to Baby Boy, Kase Townes
It's a boy for Jewel: The singer and co-host of Bravo's reality show "Platinum Hit" welcomed her first son with Ty Murray on Monday in Texas.
Kase Townes Murray was born at 7 p.m. CST and weighed 7 lbs, 6 oz.
"Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world," Jewel tells People magazine. "We are overcome with happiness - it really is as great as everyone told us it would be - better even!"
Jewel discovered she was expecting on her first day of co-hosting "Platinum Hit."
"I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!" she said then. "It was so hard to keep it a secret."
A fire truck hit a car in which she was a passenger in March, when she was five months pregnant, but she was not seriously injured.
