Jewel and Ty Murray: We're Having a Boy!

"We would have been happy either way, of course, but we are so excited to be having a little boy," the singer, 36, tells PEOPLE.

Jewel and Ty Murray can finally start painting their nursery.

“We would have been happy either way, of course, but we are so excited to be having a little boy,” the singer, 36, tells PEOPLE.

The couple, who are expecting their first child this summer, had been waiting to find out the sex of their baby before finalizing a remodel of their guest room at their 2,200-acre ranch in Texas.

“I have to admit, I was doing a little dance on our way out of the doctor’s office when we found out!” says Murray, a nine-time World Champion rodeo cowboy.

Jewel, who earlier this month announced her pregnancy to PEOPLE, had been trying for two years to have a baby with Murray.

The singer received the happy news on her first day as a host of Bravo’s upcoming songwriting competition Platinum Hit, which costars former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi. Jewel is also working on a children’s album.
