Papas just don’t come much prouder than Jake Owen, who’ll be enjoying his first Father’s Day since his wife Lacey gave birth to their daughter, Pearl, last Thanksgiving.

It wasn’t so long ago that Jake might not have believed that his life would be where it is today, but with a smartphone full of photos of his little girl, Jake is ready for a very happy Father’s Day. “I didn’t think that, a couple years ago, that if someone would have said, ‘Hey, man, in two years, you’re gonna be a dad, and you’re gonna have your first Father’s Day with your little girl who’s laughing and smiling every morning when she wakes up lookin’ at you,’ I don’t know if I would’ve believed them, but you know, you never know.

Things happen quickly in life, and here we are, two years later, and my wife and I have a little girl, and it’s pretty awesome. There’s nothing more fulfilling than bein’ a dad. That’s for sure.”
