The singer and her husband Ty Murray, a professional bull rider, welcomed their first child named Kase Townes Murray on Monday, July 11. The baby arrived at 7 p.m. and weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces.

"Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy Kase Townes Murray into the world! We are over come with happiness - it really is as great as everyone told us it would be- better even," Jewel said in a statement on her website.

Jewel first announced her pregnancy in January. The singer's car was hit by a fire truck in March when she was five months pregnant, but she and the baby were not harmed.
