Kase Townes Murray was born at 7 p.m. CST and weighed 7 lbs, 6 oz.

"Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world," Jewel tells People magazine. "We are overcome with happiness – it really is as great as everyone told us it would be – better even!"

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.
