Jewel and her husband Ty Murray announced to People magazine that they are expecting their first child. Jewel said, "I took a pregnancy test and it was positive! It was so hard to keep it a secret. I was worried I'd start throwing up on set and everyone would be like, 'Oh, she's pregnant.'" Jewel found out she was pregnant on her very first day as host of the new reality TV series, Going Platinum.
Ty tells People, "We always knew we wanted to have a child, and this time in our lives feels right." Jewel and Ty live on a 2,200-acre ranch in Texas and are now converting the guest bedroom into a nursery. Jewel says, "I'm trying to be in the moment and really enjoy my pregnancy. I feel really lucky."
