It’s hard enough for young children to explain to their friends what their parents do when they have every day jobs, accountants and lawyers and all that. But try explaining to a 5 year old what a celebrity is… then listen to them explain it to their friends. Hilarious! That’s kind of what Jake Owen is having to deal with right now…
“I don’t ever want my daughter’s existence to be based on who her father is,” Owen said. But to an extent, even though Pearl is young, she still has a very good idea of what her dad does on a daily basis! “I asked her once, ‘Do your friends know what your dad does?’ And she said, ‘Yes.’ So I said, ‘Well, what do you tell them?’ She just said, ‘I tell them you sing for the people.’”
And with all that Jake has going on, it’s awesome to see that he is still trying so hard to be such a good father to Pearl while still trying to “sing for the people” hahaha… “Hopefully, the same values, morals and beliefs I learned are the ones I can instill in Pearl as much as I can. The love and life lessons she gets from me, I got those from my father, and I hope that’s what she’ll get from me,” he said.
“My hope is that she will do everything she wants to do, she’ll enjoy life, and she’ll live it with the best of intentions. And no regrets.”
