“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” she said in the days after the accident. “Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.” The pair have since resumed touring. Continue Reading

Congratulations to Jake Owen and his wife, Lacey, who are expecting their first child — a girl! People.com 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!”

Jake Owen’s fiancé Lacey Buchanan now has a ring to go with her proposal, reports People.com.  Jake worked with Lizzy Raye Jewelers in Atlanta to design the unique engagement ring. He presented Lacey with a 2.5-carat oval-cut diamond set in platinum with a ‘little bitty halo around it’ and small diamonds on the band.

“I told her, ‘The sparkle is never going to go away in that ring, and I don’t want our sparkle to ever go away either,’” Jake said. “‘On your darkest days, I want you to look at it and see that there’s a glimmer of light in it. I want it to always remind you of the possibilities of our relationship.’”

Jake’s mother also approved of the ring her son picked out. “I want that ring to be timeless,” he said to People. “When my mom saw it, she said, ‘That looks like something Princess Diana would wear.’ I was so excited to give it to her.”

Here’s the ring! Click on the photo for the full size version:

Jake’s proposal during a show in his hometown of Vero Beach, Florida on April 7 was spontaneous, but not completely unplanned. Jake and Lacey had talked about getting married and he had even asked her father for permission. When the opportunity presented itself, Jake seized it.

“I only had one song left to play and it was ‘Don’t Think I Can’t Love You,’” he said. “I wrote it a long time ago about my family and my dad and mom had been married for 30 years. I just saw [Lacey] out there, my family, and I was like, forget the ring, screw it, this is like the perfect place to do it.” Continue Reading
