NEW YORK (Reuters) - Singer Jewel has given birth to a baby boy, People magazine reported on Tuesday.

The Grammy-nominated singer, 37, and her professional bull riding husband, Ty Murray, welcomed their son named Kase Townes Murray on Monday in Texas, according to People.

"Ty and I are so pleased to welcome our new baby boy into the world," Jewel told the magazine. "We are overcome with happiness."
