Jake Owen Excitedly Counting Down the Days Until Daughter’s Arrival
Jake Owen is counting down the days until he becomes a new father. Owen and his wife, Lacey Buchanan — who married in a seaside wedding in Vero Beach, Fla. in May — are expecting their first baby, a daughter, in November.
“It’s super cool we have our little girl on the way, so I’m really excited,” Owen tells Charlotte radio station 103.7. “Why is it that nine months in any other time of your life seems like it takes a year or longer but nine months when your wife is pregnant seems like it’s gone by in nine days?” He adds, “I’m constantly feeling like there’s something I need to do more, like I need to be more prepared when she comes along.”
The ‘Alone With You’ singer is currently headlining CMT’s annual fall tour, which launched last week with a performance in New York City. Still, Owen says there is no way he would miss the birth of the couple’s first child.
“Oh yeah, I’m gonna be there” he assures. “That’s gonna be something I’ll remember for the rest of my life.”
