Jewel on the moments with her son that sparkle

Jewel gives a hand to her 18-month-old son Kase.

On top of her professional obligations — she’s a co-host and judge on “Platinum Hit” and the new spokeswoman for Pampers Baby Dry diapers — Jewel is also a mom to her 18-month-old son Kase and a wife to Ty Murray, the professional bull rider. But as you can tell from the following interview, her life is far from a rodeo.

If you could highlight one beautiful moment with your son, what would it be?

The morning is my favorite time with my baby. I thought it was just me and Kase. I just thought, “Wow, Kase is always in a great mood in the morning.” Then I talked to other moms and realized it’s everyone’s favorite time with their baby. It’s something kind of magical — they are just in a good mood and it’s just fun to hang out with them. One of my favorite morning moments is getting to read with him.

Speaking of books, can you tell us a little bit about yours?

I wrote “That’s What I’d Do” for Kase while I was still pregnant. I had written a children’s record for him, too, called “The Merry Goes ‘Round,” full of little things I wanted to teach him. I try to use imaginative metaphors to show him all the ways I love him.

What do you think of the new season of “Dancing with the Stars”?

My husband and I watch it together. I still sometimes look over and think, “There’s my cowboy husband watching a dancing show.” It still shocks me. Being on the show definitely gives you a new appreciation for how hard it is. He still gets fits of anxiety when he sees certain studios that he rehearsed in. He gets flashbacks and needs medication — only joking!
