Paging Dr. Owen! Jake Owen told CMT that he delivered his baby Thanksgiving day...with some help from the actual doctors :)
"I delivered her. I was right there, and I caught her when she came out," Jake said. "I've done a lot of cool things in my life. But that, by far, was the coolest thing ever. There's nothing that will ever top that. I don't understand what could be better than that."
"The night before Thanksgiving, we thought, 'Maybe we'll have the baby tomorrow. Then in the morning, Lacey started having contractions. We timed them, and they were like 12 minutes apart. Then 11. Then eight. Then four. So we went to the hospital around 3:30, Lacey pushed a few times and Pearl was born at 5:15."
Jake had a few days home with Olive and wife Lacey before having to go back out on tour... "Leaving her ... to come here was hard," he admits. "Because I kissed her on her little forehead and said, 'I'll be back,' and I realized I'm gonna be saying that a lot to her. That's going to be so hard."
