It’s lucky number seven for Taylor Hanson—seven kids!
The Hanson brother has officially welcomed his seventh child with wife Natalie Hanson, a baby girl named Maybellene. The newborn arrived on Dec. 7, but the proud dad waited until Dec. 17 to announce the family’s sweet news with fans.
“Meet our baby girl Maybellene Alma Joy, born Dec 7th 2020,” he confirmed on Instagram. “7 is a beautiful number.”
It was just in September that the performer revealed the big news that his family was expanding once again. “The best kind of unexpected,” Taylor wrote on Instagram at the time. “Number seven coming this December. #2020.”
This time two years ago, the pair was awaiting the arrival of their son Claude, who was officially born on Dec. 26, 2018.
The busy couple are also parents to Jordan, 18, Penelope, 15, River, 14, Viggo, 12, and Wilhelmina, 8. Having tied the knot in 2002, Taylor and Natalie are now approaching nearly 20 years of marriage.
As the “MMMBop” singer wrote in honor of their anniversary in 2018, “I am The Luckiest man alive.”
Back in October, Natalie reflected on the surprise pregnancy in a piece published on her website. There, she also contemplated a recurring question about whether her pregnancies have been similar.
“I have some similar physical symptoms that have been around each time, and for the most part all of my pregnancies have been healthy and uneventful. But at the same time, each one has been completely different, and those differences have much more to do with external factors than with the baby itself,” she told readers. “I’ve rejoiced over planned babies that seemed to fill a spot just waiting for them. I’ve had pregnancies where I didn’t know until the last minute if Taylor would be home for the birth. I’ve had larger spaces where I was a little out of practice, but able to nap. I’ve had babies back to back with all the cuteness and fatigue that comes from double stroller life.”
She concluded with an uplifting summary. “Each pregnancy has been different, each birth has been a little different, and each one has gifted me with hard learned lessons on life and love,” Natalie wrote. “It’s too soon to tell all that I will learn this time around, but I can already see glimpses of insight I have yet to experience until now, so thank you little number seven. We’re waiting for you.”
