REVIEW: Platinum Hit
Jewel discovered she was expecting on her first day of co-hosting Platinum Hit.
"I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!" she said then. "It was so hard to keep it a secret."
A fire truck hit a car in which she was a passenger in March, when she was five months pregnant, but she was not seriously injured.
