“Lacey and I are so excited to start our own family,” Jake said after Olive Pearl’s arrival. “We are looking forward to teaching Pearl everything we learned from our parents and also learning from her.”

Wynonna Judd [5] and Cactus Moser tied the knot in a small ceremony on Wynonna’s farm in Tennessee on June 10. Two months later, Cactus was involved in a motorcycle accident [6] that resulted in his leg being amputated. Wynonna canceled tour dates to remain by his side.

“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” she said in the days after the accident. “Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.” The pair have since resumed touring.
