Before Jewel and her rodeo champion husband Ty Murray eloped in August to the Bahamas, they’d said they wouldn’t tie the knot unless they were planning on having children. But now friends of the singer/bestselling poet tell OK! that she’s quickly changed her mind.

"Jewel and Ty are desperately trying to have a baby right now," the source says. "She told her team to clear her schedule for 2009 because they are planning for a baby. She wants to also release a lullaby record next year because she has such baby fever."

This is a change in tune for Jewel, who previously shrugged off the idea of starting a family anytime soon.

"We don’t know if there’s a point – we’ve lapped our friends who’ve gotten married and divorced," Jewel said in the past. "We probably would if we had kids – we’re just not sure we want them yet. But we’ve had something really special already."
