Jewel stopped by the "Today Show" Wednesday to talk marriage, parenting and her new rural life.

The singer told co-hosts Kathy Lee and Hoda that she and her rodeo cowboy husband, Ty Murray, knew each other for ten years before they got engaged. Of their long courtship, she joked: "I pretended it was fine, I pretended it was cool. But it wasn't!"

Jewel and Murray married in a secret ceremony in the Bahamas in 2008. The couple welcomed a baby boy, Kase Townes Murray, in July.

Jewel's latest album of children's songs, "The Merry Goes 'Round," is available now.
