Ty Murray’s Dancing Strategy: Get Wife Jewel Pregnant

She may have tendonitis in her knee, but Jewel is on the mend.

"I went to the physical therapist yesterday and I can say that I am feeling better!” the Dancing with the Stars contestant wrote Thursday on her blog. "He said if I take time now to heal I will be good to go by next week."

That's good news for the singer -- "I hate missing these days, but it's all for the best in the long run," she continued, "because I'm in it for the long haul and I wanna win it" -- but not so great for her rodeo star husband Ty Murray, who will compete against her in the ballroom.

But Murray has a plan.

"Ty said he thinks his best chance of beating me is if I get pregnant during the show so I would be too tired to dance," Jewel writes. "Talk about a strategy! Of course, that would be fine with me if it did happen, so either way would be a win!" -- Liz BermanPeter Kramer/AP
