Maren Morris has a child with singer Ryan Hurd

Morris married fellow country singer/songwriter Ryan Hurd in 2018. The pair first met while writing a song for Tim McGraw. They would visit bars together after writing sessions, and their love blossomed from there.

In March 2020, Morris and Hurd became parents for the first time. They welcomed a baby boy named Hayes. Morris has opened up with fans about going through postpartum depression, but she also talks positively about parenthood.

According to, she shared about her son, “He’s just perfect, he’s so smiley. It’s a really fun age with him right now because he’s laughing at everything… he loves music. He’s just the sweetest baby and I just get excited everyday that I get to wake up and hang out with him.”

As reported by Us Weekly, The Sun wrote an article about Morris speaking out on postpartum body expectations. However, the outlet misidentified Morris’ husband.

“Earlier this month the hot mama, who gave birth to her first child with husband Luke Bryan in March 2020, shared a thoughtful post about her post-baby body,” The Sun wrote.

In response to the mistake, Morris posted a screenshot of the article on her Instagram Story. She made fun of the situation by writing, “I guess the cat’s outta the bag @lukebryan.” Morris also included a laughing emoji and a GIF of a woman laughing.

Hurd also joined in on the fun. He wrote on his own page, “Damn you @LukeBryan I demand a paternity test.”

This is not the first time Bryan got mistaken for a fellow country singer. Last year, while he was performing for ACM Presents: Our Country, a TV station displayed Blake Shelton’s name on the screen instead of Bryan’s.

According to Pop Culture, Bryan posted a picture of this mishap on his Instagram page, writing, “I gotta work harder.”

Shelton also commented on the picture with a caption saying, “Wow look at my spray tan everyone!!!”

Other country stars chimed in as well. Dylan Scott joked, “Love watching you on The Voice!” Meanwhile, Jason Aldean seemed to think the situation was hilarious as he commented with three laughing emojis.
