The country star, who just released his sixth studio album, Greetings From…Jake, at the end of March, announced that he and Erica were expecting during the ABC special I’m Coming Home.
This is actually Jake’s second little girl. The singer and his ex-wife, Lacey, welcomed daughter Olive Pearl in 2012. And Pearl has actually had a busy few months. Her mom remarried last summer. She and husband David welcomed their first daughter together, Elenora, in February, which means Pearl became a big sister twice in three months.
In addition to his new baby girl, and his new album—his first on the Big Loud Records label— the first single from Greetings From…Jake, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” became his most recent No. 1 and the follow-up second single, “Down to the Honkytonk” is already a Top 10 and continues to rise on the country singles chart.
Although Jake does have tour dates on his calendar all summer, it appears that he also has long breaks to spend time at home with his little family.
