Jake Owen shares how challenging it is to be a single dad Twitter/@jakeowen

Jake Owen may be 36 years old, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be a kid at heart – especially when it comes to spending time with his 4-year-old daughter, Pearl.

The doting daddy and his little princess, whom he shares with ex-wife Lacey Buchanan, celebrated his Aug. 28 birthday at Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

The “Good Company” singer shared a photo on Twitter on Aug. 29 of the adorable father/daughter trip.

“I’ve had some great birthdays, but yesterday was one of the best ever,” he tweeted, alongside the shot of Pearl sitting on his shoulders in front of Cinderella’s castle.

Jake also took to Instagram, with a picture and perhaps the sweetest tribute to his precious tyke.

“I sometimes think, ‘Damn. I’m getting older.’ Just when that thought crosses my mind, I realize how my life is only getting better day by day,” he captioned a photo of himself and Pearl happily running around the theme park hand-in-hand. “This little girl Pearl is the reason I wake up every day and TRY to be the best man I can be. Every day it’s a challenge to be the best dad I can be to her and make sure she knows that there isn’t a song, a show, or anything that comes before her. Single dad life isn’t what I’d planned on, but I’m so lucky that I have this little girl to constantly remind me of my purpose on this earth.”

Jake then went on to thank his loyal fans for their birthday wishes before concluding his message with, “Life is great at 36.”

Happy birthday Jake!
