We're over the moon for Maren Morris!
The country music crooner is all set to be in The Middle of a few years of diapers, toys, toddlers, and sleepless nights, all for the best reason imaginable… she just gave birth to a baby boy! This is the first child for the 29-year-old singer and her hubby, Ryan Hurd, and we couldn't be happier for the down-home pair as they take on parenthood with this precious little one!

Morris announced the birth of Hayes Andrew Hurd on Monday to her Instagram followers, giving them the first look at the tiny bundle of joy who was born today! Swipe through (below):
He's so precious!!!
We've been tracking the singer's pregnancy since way back in October when she first announced that she was expecting a boy. She was shocked by it at the time, and figured she'd be having a girl… but pregnancy had other plans, and here we are now!
Maren's Rise To The Top!
It's been one heck of a ride into the spotlight for the bubbly young country singer over the last few years. She's singlehandedly taken down the genre's seemingly un-ending patriarchy, while also firing off crossover singles like The Middle and good ol' down-home gems like My Church. She's comfortable turning heads at award shows alongside boy band superstars, but just as at-home every time she brings it back to her country roots, even in tough times.
In other words, she's the crossover star we so desperately want — and need — to bring country music into the modern age! BTW, not to toot our own horn or anything, but we were pretty much on-point three years ago when we said she was going to be the genre's next up-and-coming superstar… because, well, just look at her now!

Even with all the success in the music biz, though, it's obvious that her new role as mom to this beautiful baby boy is most important, and we couldn't be happier for the superstar as she transitions into motherhood. She clearly has an amazing thing going with her super-supportive husband, too, so something tells us this happy family is going to keep rolling along even as they get busier — and sleepier — with an infant now in their lives!
Congrats, Maren and Ryan!!!
Well, there you have it, Perezcious readers! Sooo happy for the lovely, proud new momma and her growing family!
