Congratulations to Jake Owen and his wife, Lacey, who are expecting their first child — a girl! reports Jake, 30, and Lacey, 22, will welcome her in November.

The happy couple said “I Do” May 7 in a sunrise beach ceremony in Jake’s hometown of Vero Beach, Florida. Yesterday on Jake’s Twitter page, he tweeted, “Greatest day of my life. Point blank. Best ever. Wow.”

“We actually found out Lacey was pregnant after I had asked her dad for his permission,” Jake tells People. “From the day I met her, there was no doubt in my mind I wanted to marry her, and we always knew we wanted a family. The way we saw it, the baby news was a bonus on top of the engagement, but we didn’t want anyone to think we were getting married because Lacey was pregnant, and we wanted to celebrate our wedding first.”

“We didn’t want to go public with it until we found out if it was a boy or a girl,” adds Lacey. “The pregnancy was just something we wanted to keep for ourselves for a little while.”

Jake, who’s currently out on the road on Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw‘s Brothers of the Sun Tour, made it home in time for the first ultrasound appointment on Monday.

“Not only do I have a beautiful wife I get to spend my life with, I’m getting a baby too!” Jake tells People. “You know with other people’s babies, they’ll say, ‘Do you want to hold the baby?’ And I always am excited to do that, but then you have to give the baby back. Now we get to keep the baby!”
