Jewel and her rodeo star husband Ty Murray are expecting their first child. They are doing their part to contribute to the new generation of celebrity babies in 2011.
Jewel found out she was pregnant on her first day as co-host for Bravo’s new reality show Going Platinum.
“I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!” the singer, 36, tells PEOPLE. “It was so hard to keep it a secret. I was worried I’d start throwing up on set and everyone would be like, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant.’ “
The couple kept the pregnancy a secret at first, but Jewel says that it was a really hard secret to keep. She’s now in her second trimester and they are ready to go public with the pregnancy. Jewel says she’s trying to ‘live in the moment’ and enjoy her pregnancy, but she is working on her second children’s album.
She and her husband Ty Murray married in 2008 and say they’ve been trying for her to get pregnant every since. The couple live in Texas on a 2,200 acre ranch and are preparing a nursery for their little one.
Congratulations to Jewel and Ty Murray!
