It seems as if another little princess will soon have Jake Owen wrapped around her little finger. The singer is about to be the dad of another daughter after revealing the gender of the baby he’s expecting with his girlfriend, Erica Hartlein.
“We found out it’s a girl,” he told Amy Brown of The Bobby Bones Show during a Q&A session at his iHeartCountry LIVE with Jake Owen Presented by Marathon show in New York City (quotes via PEOPLE). “I just kinda threw that out there — people have been wondering. We found out it’s a girl.”
“I’m good at making girls,” he added, referencing his six-year-old daughter Pearl.

Being on the road is an amazing job and has so many special moments. BUT, being away from my little girl when she learned to ride her bike with no training wheels today is tough! I am so excited for her and a proud Dad. Her excitement in her “Hey Daddy” made my whole week. Ha. It’s the little moments in life. The FIRST times. Cherish them.
While Owen has been nothing but supportive of Hartlein as they go through this pregnancy together, he admits to not sticking to his ‘no alcohol rule’ at a wedding the previous weekend.
“I drank for the both of us,” he shared. “[Not drinking] sounded like a good idea [before]. I was like, ‘This is gonna be great, both of us will just go without drinking for nine months and I’ll be completely clear-minded for when this baby gets here.’”
The Florida native announced the impending arrival of his new little bundle of joy during an airing of ABC’s I’m Coming Home.
“This’ll throw you guys for a loop,” he told his family as they sat out by the pool. “[We] haven’t told anyone, but Erica and I will be having a little addition to our Owen family.”
The newest member of Owen’s family will arrive in late spring/early summer 2019.
