Country singer Jake Owen is the proud daddy of a little baby girl, having welcomed his first child with wife Lacey Buchanan on Thanksgiving Day.

"Today is the greatest day of my life," he said on Twitter, sharing a picture of himself with his daughter. "Welcome Olive Pearl Owen. 6lbs 3 oz Turkey Baby!!! Happy Thanksgiving."

In sharing his and his wife's excitement with People, he said through a rep, "We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her."

She's going by Pearl in honor of Owen's late godmother, he told the mag.

Owen and Buchanan, a model, were married May 7 in Florida after a month-long engagement. They met, according to the Boot, when she appeared in his music video for the song "8 Second Ride" and started dating after he made her the star of another of his videos, "Barefoot Blue Jean Night."
