Jake Owen and his wife, Lacey, already received a Thanksgiving gift: their daughter, Olive Pearl, born this past Thanksgiving Day. Now, they're excited to mark their first Christmas with the new addition to the family.

"We can't wait to celebrate Christmas," Jake tells Country Weekly. "It's our first Christmas together and we're making a trip to see our families in Florida." Jake, who hails from Vero Beach, is doing what countless other dads are for the holidays: packing up the family car and heading south. "We'll have to stop a few times, of course, with our daughter not even a month old, but it'll be great," Jake says. "It'll be me and my wife and our little girl and our dog."

Jake notes that he's learning every day in his new role as a father. "It's definitely a transition for my wife and me," he says. "It's a great responsibility and we're figuring things out as we go. But we love it! Our daughter is doing great and we couldn't be happier. In the next few years, when she starts to catch on to what Christmas is all about, it will really a fun time."
