While Jewel‘s chances at Dancing with the Stars may have been dashed by an injury, she may soon face another challenge–motherhood. The singer’s husband, Ty Murray, said the couple is looking forward to starting a family–sooner, rather than later. When asked about his wife making a comeback on the show, Murray told E! “we’ll see what the future holds, but it’ll be hard to do it if her belly is out to here!” The couple hope for two children–ideally, one boy and one girl.
