Jake Owen and Daughter Pearl Welcome New Family Addition
Jake Owen and his daughter, Pearl, have welcomed an adorable new addition to their family.
The "American Country Love Song" singer and his too-cute-for-words daughter, who is now 4 (where did the time go?), have added an equally adorable German Shepherd to their family unit, and Owen shared a picture of the happy trio together to Instagram on Saturday (Feb. 18), asking fans for some help coming up with a name.
"Pearl and I picked up our new addition to the family today," Owen writes. "A beautiful 3mos old German Shepherd. Still working on a good name... any suggestions?"

Owen and his now-ex-wife welcomed Olive Pearl on Thanksgiving Day in 2012. The couple announced their divorce in 2015. Owen says that although his time with his daughter is limited, he tries to make it as special as he possibly can.
“Now especially that she lives in Florida with her mom … I have to be a dad that is everything to her,” he tells Taste of Country in our July 2016 cover story. “I have to be the dad that can teach her stuff and be strict, but I also don’t want to be the dad that every time she gets to see Dad, I’m just the guy that’s telling her what to do. I need to be her buddy, I need to be there for her.”
He's doing just that, too. Owen frequently shares pictures of his fun times with Pearl to social media, including that time he bought her an adorable mini-sized VW Bus that almost matches the one on the cover of his latest album, American Love.
