Fans of Bravo‘s Platinum Hit may have noticed Jewel’s growing tummy in the past few episodes, and that is because the 36 year old host of the show was indeed expecting a baby! Last night, the star gave birth to a bouncing baby boy! Read on for all the details!
Platinum Hit’s host Jewel and her husband, professional bull rider Ty Murray, welcomed a son, Kase Townes Murray on Monday evening according to People Magazine. Jewel told the magazine: “Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world. We are overcome with happiness – it really is as great as everyone told us it would be – better even!”
Kase, who weighed in at 7 lbs and 6 oz was a great blessing to the star and her husband as they struggled to conceive him. Jewel actually found out that they were expecting a baby on the first day that she started hosting Platinum Hit and she gushed to People: “I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. It was so hard to keep it a secret.”
But trouble conceiving was not the only drama the star faced as she was struck by a firetruck back in March when she was about 5 months pregnant. Once tests revealed that she and her unborn baby boy were fine, she was released from the hospital. It’s been a long journey for Jewel and Ty, but they did get their happy ending – congratulations to Jewel and Ty on the birth of their son!
