NEW YORK (AP) — Jewel is expecting a precious gift -- a baby.
The pop-country singer is pregnant. Her publicist, Nicole Perez-Krueger, says it will be the first child for Jewel and her husband, rodeo champion Ty Murray.
The 36-year-old singer and Murray were married in 2008.
Jewel's hits include "You Were Meant for Me."
The pregnancy was first reported Tuesday on People magazine's website.
