Jake Owen’s daughter spent her birthday in the hospital.

On Thursday (April 29), Owen updated fans on his Instagram account. He shared an image of his 2-year-old daughter Paris in a hospital bed. She was admitted to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.

She was smiling and surrounded by toddler Legos and goldfish. The country crooner did not reveal why his daughter was hospitalized. However, the image does show what appears to be red marks on her face.

“Our little sweet Paris is TWO years old today,” Jake Owen began. “Never imagined spending her bday in the hospital. Thanks to everyone at @vumcchildren for being so helpful and caring for her.”

Owen said that she seems to be doing a lot better. He and his fiancée Erica Hartlein thanked everyone for the overwhelming support.

“Hoping to go home soon and blow some candles out! Love y’all,” he concluded.

Jake Owen and His Family

Paris Hartley is Jake Owen‘s youngest daughter with fiancée Erica Hartlein. The couple welcomed Paris in 2019. Meanwhile, Owen’s eldest daughter, Olive Pearl, is 8 years old. Owen’s ex-wife Lacey Buchanan gave birth to her in 2012.

“Pearl is an amazing big sister,” Owen told People last year. “Paris is just in awe of everything Pearl does. It’s so fun to see her be so excited and react to her.”

Jake Owen premiered his music video for “Made For You” this past July. The video features his bride-to-be and his daughters.

“This is a song about love. Love for people and moments in our lives. You all shared examples of those moments in your life and some of them are in this video,” he shared at the time.

In December 2020, he popped the question to Hartlein. He proposed almost five years ago to the date at a Christmas tree farm.

“This year, I asked her if she’d like to get Christmas Trees every year for the rest of our lives,” Owen wrote. “Our little Paris was there to witness the complete surprise. So much of a surprise, Erica didn’t have her nails done… (yes, I now know that’s big deal I guess).”
