Ty Murray and Jewel’s Son Wants to Be ‘All Cowboy’d Up’

10/24/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Ever since he became a father, Ty Murray has been telling PEOPLE that he doesn’t want son Kase Townes to one day follow in his dangerous footsteps as a professional bull rider.

Now 3 years old, Kase appears to have his own opinion on the matter — at least when it comes to the attire involved.

“This morning, Kase’s mom put a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt on him and he said to me, ‘Daddy, let’s get all cowboy’d up,’ ” Murray tells PEOPLE with a laugh.

“I don’t know where he comes up with this stuff! I’ve never pushed being a cowboy at all. I don’t even know where he came up with that word.”

“I [come from] a huge family with lots of kids, many younger than him, and he’s known as the cousin that takes care of the little ones. He’s almost maternal when it comes to toddlers. He’s been asking for a really long time for a baby brother or baby sister and is thrilled it’s finally happening.”

While Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly couldn’t be happier with the success of her TV show, the mom of three admits she could use a little bit more sleep.

“I have a setup that allows me to be a stay-at-home mom in the day and full-time employee in the night,” she tells PEOPLE. “It works out well for my home and work life, but it doesn’t leave a lot of time for rest.”

But Kelly, 43, isn’t complaining. After celebrating the one-year anniversary of her show on Oct. 7, she is thrilled by the 2.5 million viewers that tune in to watch her every night — even if her kids aren’t included in that number.

“I don’t think they know I’m actually on TV for a living,” she says of her daughter Yardley Evans, 3½, and two sonsEdward Yates, 5, and Thatcher Bray, 15 months.
