“This will throw you guys for a loop,” Jake said. “We haven’t told anyone, but Erica and I will be having a little addition to our Owen family.”

Jake’s parents’ excitement for the impending arrival could not be contained.

“I hope it’s twins,” Jake’s mom said.

“Gotta have a little boy,” added Jake’s dad.

The new baby will join big sister Olive Pearl (6), Jake’s daughter from his previous marriage.
