Jake Owen Strives To Be a Role Model For Olive Pearl
Jake Owen and his wife Lacey celebrated the birth of their baby girl, Olive Pearl, on Thanksgiving Day. The singer, who currently has the No.1 song at Country radio with “The One That Got Away,” says one of his main goals as a father is to become a role model for his daughter.
“I told Lacey the other day, I said, ‘You know what? If our girl will look at me the way that you look at your dad, and if our girl will talk about me to her friends and her boyfriend or her husband one day the way that you talk to me about your dad, then my job in life will be complete,’ Jake says. “Because a dad to a girl is a role model, and it’s someone that she can count on and stand behind, and it’s my dying goal to make sure that my daughter knows that, that I’m here for her and for no matter what.”
Although Jake’s schedule is pretty packed in the coming weeks, the singer will be able to spend time with Pearl in between dates. The four-time American Country Awards nominee is set to play two back-to-back nights in Chicago tonight and tomorrow. He’ll then head to West Des Moines, IA for a show on December 1.
