"We are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world," Jewel and Murray, a professional bull rider, told People. "We are overcome with happiness – it really is as great as everyone told us it would be – better even!"

Jewel found out she was pregnant on the first day of her job co-hosting Bravo's Platinum Hit: "I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!"

"It was so hard to keep it a secret."

The Grammy-nominated singer, 36, had struggled to conceive, then was hit by a fire truck in March at five months pregnant. She was released from the hospital after tests concluded she and her unborn child were unharmed.

Jewel and Ty Murray – co-founder of the Professional Bull Riders, nine-time world champion and a color commentator for Built Ford Tough Series broadcasts – got hitched in a beach ceremony in the Bahamas in 2008.

Congratulations to the couple family!

Jewel and Ty Murray are expecting!

Now in her second trimester, Jewel and her husband, rodeo star Ty Murray, are finally ready to share their happy news - and fans are happy to hear it.

The couple, who wed in the Bahamas in 2008, and who both competed on Dancing With the Stars, had been trying to have a baby for two years.

"I've always been a workaholic, so I had to learn how to slow down, to take care of myself in a different way," Jewel says of her struggle to conceive.

"I'm trying to be in the moment and really enjoy my pregnancy," says the singer, who we wish only the very best, along with her husband!
