Jewel and Ty Murray Spend Fourth of July Together Following Divorce Announcement
Just two days after announcing the news of their separation on her personal website, Jewel took to her Instagram account to show that they'll still be a family even though she and Murray have split. The three spent their holiday weekend together in Colorado -- and they all looked pretty happy!
"Happy fourth everyone! @typbr Kase & I enjoyed the parade here in CO. Send pics of your weekend!" she captioned the family photo.
Jewel was all smiles, with her long blonde hair down as she took in the festivities, casual and festive while holding her son. She wore a tied up button down shirt and shorts, while Kase, who may be a little camera shy, sported blue pants and a red, white and blue button down on America's birthday. Murray opted to wear blue, but doesn't appear to be wearing his wedding band in the photo.
In announcing her divorce, Jewel explains that since her life is so public, she wanted to be the first to share the news, instead of the tabloids. She and Murray have been together for 16 years and have been married for almost six.
The photo proves that although the news is fresh, they still plan on remaining a family and raising their son together. “Our dedication to our son is unwavering and we are both committed to being the best partners in raising our son,” she expresses in the website post.
Adds the singer, "Due to the spirit in which we have gone about this separation, we trust we can remain dear friends who hold each other in high esteem, which is so important to us as parents- as we wish only what is best for our son."
