It doesn’t seem like all that long ago that “MMMBop” dominated the airwaves (ok, ok it was 17 years ago), but when you look at the Hanson brothers then and now, it’s obvious a lot has changed. For instance, Zac, Taylor, and Isaac have a grand total of 11 children between them. Seriously. And their haircuts are questionably better.
Anyway, the newest Hanson baby belongs to oldest brother Isaac, 33. He just announced this weekend that his third child, Nina Odette, was born March 11. He and wife Nikki are also parents to Clark Everett (2007) and James Monroe (2008).
“After more than five years of not having a baby in the house, having our first little girl is going to be fun,” he told People. “I know that Everett and Monroe are excited about being big brothers.”
But at least Isaac can get some babysitting help from his younger brother Taylor, 31, who has an impressive five children. His oldest is going to be 12 this year! He and wife Natalie Bryant met after a Hanson concert in 2000 and didn’t waste any time starting their big family. Here’s their roster of kiddos: Jordan Ezra “Ezra” Hanson (2002), Penelope “Penny” Anne Hanson (2005), River Samuel Hanson (2006), Viggo Moriah Hanson (2008), and Wilhelmina “Willa” Jane Hanson (2012).
Now for the youngest Hanson brother, Zac. He’s 28 and married to a woman named Kate Tucker. They met at the same event where Taylor met Natalie. Crazy, right? They have three kids: Ira Shepherd “Shepherd” Hanson (2008), Junia Rosa Ruth Hanson (2010) and George Abraham Walker “Abraham” Hanson (2013).
So, now now that the Hanson brothers are a little busy with family life, maybe in a couple years the Hanson cousins will start something up. There’s got to be some musical talent between the 11 of them…
There is an error in this article; Zac’s eldest son’s name is John Ira Shepherd Hanson.
