Jake Owen, Lacey


Country crooner Jake Owen and his wife Lacey Buchannan are gearing up for parenthood!

The couple, who announced that they were expecting a baby girl in July, told E! News during the Country Music Awards' red carpet today that they're expecting the little princess's arrival in about three weeks, and even spilled on the name they chose for her!

It's pretty precious.

Owens and his lady have decided to name their first child Pearl.

No, this isn't some trend that seems to be happening. The singer shared that Pearl was the name of his best friend who passed away, and that's why they chose it. 

Owen and Buchannan married in May with a beachside ceremony. "A best friend for life. I now have a wifey :)" he tweeted. "My face hurts from smiling," Owen added. "What a wonderful way to start the rest of my life."
