Hanson Reveals the Real Meaning of “MMMBop”
The Hanson family is about to get a little bigger.
Taylor Hanson and his wife Natalie Hanson are expecting their seventh child. The 37-year-old singer announced the news via Instagram on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
“The best kind of unexpected,” the Hanson band member wrote alongside a photo of the happy couple. “Number seven coming this December. #2020.”
No other details, including the sex of the child, were revealed.
The big announcement came less than two years after Taylor and Natalie welcomed their son Claude Indiana Emmanuel into the world. They’re also the proud parents to Jordan Ezra, 17; Penelope Anne, 15; River Samuel, 14; Viggo Moriah, 11 and Wilhelmina “Willa” Jane, 7, whom they raise in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Taylor also comes from a big family, as well. In fact, he is one of seven children. His kids also have a lot of cousins, too. His brother and bandmate Isaac Hanson, for instance, has three children, and their third member and fellow sibling Zac Hanson has four. Their brother, Mac Hanson, is also about to become a father for the first time.
So, what do the kiddos think of the “MMMBop” stars’ rockin’ career?

“They know what we do is different, but it’s not different in the sense that we are ‘kind of a big deal’ different,” Taylor told Today back in 2017. “And we know being in Tulsa, it’s even clearer. It’s not like there are other dads in bands leaving on tour tomorrow. I think they get that, but they also get how that doesn’t come easily and we work hard.”
It looks like the little ones have already inherited their musical talent, too. In fact, Taylor told the news organization at the time that all of his kids are learning to play instruments.
“There is definitely musicality and artistry in the genes,” Zac added. “So, we will see what it becomes.”
Congratulations to the growing family!
