Jake Owen’s Daughter Was Almost ‘POO’
Jake Owen is already fiercely protective of his infant daughter, Olive Pearl Owen, and before she was born, he noticed something a little... alarming about her future initials -- something that would prompt teasing from her peers. You see, her initials were going to be 'POO.'
'The One That Got Away' hitmaker explains to People, “My best friend's name was Pearl -- [she] passed away — and we wanted to call [our daughter] Pearl. We were going to name her Pearl Olive Owen,” he says with a laugh. “But then her initials would have been ‘POO’ so we went ahead and switched that around.”
It was good thinking on his part, and Pearl will most likely be very grateful for her dad's foresight once she gets a little older. The 31-year-old country artist is already looking ahead to the future, saying, “I look at my little girl and I wonder what she’s going to be and what she’s going to do... it makes me want to be the best dad I can possibly be.”
With the adoration he's already portrayed for his firstborn -- and his determination to enjoy every single moment with his bundle of joy -- it sounds like he's already being a terrific and loving dad.
