JAKE OWEN Looking Forward to Paris

Jake Owen‘s second daughter — his first with girlfriend Erica Hartlein — is due in May, and the couple has chosen the name ‘Paris.’

The singer also has a 6-year-old daughter named Pearl from his previous marriage to Lacey Buchanan, and his experience in raising her has helped him be “more calm this time,” he tells People, but “just as exciting.”

Owen is thrilled to be a father to another little girl.

“To be blessed with another beautiful little girl is a big deal because I do think that it takes special men to be a great dad to a little girl,” he says, “And I feel like, thanks to Pearl, she’s shown me how to be a good father to little girls, and I’ll be a great father to Paris because of that.”
