For any millennial out there who still feels young at heart, Zac Hanson is here to ruin all of that. The 35-year-old, and youngest member of the Hanson family band, has announced that he and his wife, Kate Tucker, are currently expecting their fifth child together.
The couple announced the big news exclusively to People on Friday, telling the outlet via a statement, “We’re so happy and thankful for the things 2020 got right, especially this little guy coming in March! Here’s to fresh starts and new beginnings.” This baby will be their fifth child as they already have 12-year-old John Ira Shepherd, 10-year-old Junia Rosa Ruth, 7-year-old George Abraham Walker, and four-year-old Mary Lucille Diana. Zac and Tucker dated for five years before marrying in June 2006.
This new addition brings the total number of young Hansons up to 15 amongst the three musician brothers. Taylor Hanson, the middle brother, and his wife Natalie recently welcomed their seventh child, daughter Maybellene Alma Joy on December 7. They also share 18-year-old Jordan Ezra, 15-year-old Penelope “Penny” Anne, 14-year-old River Samuel, 12-year-old Viggo Moriah, 8-year-old Wilhelmina “Willa” Jane, and two-year-old Claude Indiana Emmanuel. The eldest Hanson Isaac and his wife Nicole also have three children of their own, Nina Odette, 6, James Monroe, 12, and Clarke Everett, 13.
During an appearance on the Lorraine talk show in February 2019, Zac told the host that being really close with his brothers is “a cool thing” and he loves that they get to raise their children around each other. “We spend a lot of time together touring, in the studio and around each other,” he said, “so our kids know each other really, really well. They’re really, really close.”
