“The irony is just too rich that after a year of living in the ‘GIRL’ headspace, the universe would give us a baby boy to even things out,” she captioned a photo of herself and Hurd cradling her baby bump.
At nine months pregnant, Morris performed at the Rodeo Houston on March 10 in a nude bedazzled jumpsuit.
“He’s kicking, but I think we’re gonna be okay for today,” she told “CBS This Morning.” “Like, the charm of pregnancy has now worn off. My husband and I both just want to meet our kid. But I can’t wait to look back at all this footage from tonight years to come and like, show him, my son, ‘This is what I did, like the week before you were here.'”
Morris and Hurd began dating in 2015 and married in Nashville in March 2018.
Maren Morris is officially a mom! The country singer welcomed her first child with Ryan Hurd on Monday (March 23).
Morris introduced the world to her son, Hayes Andrew Hurd, on social media on Monday afternoon with four photos and the caption, “Love of our lives.”
In the four pictures, Morris is shown in her hospital room shortly after giving birth with her newborn asleep on her chest. In another shot, husband Hurd is seen all smiles while looking down at his new son in his arms fittingly while wearing a Highwomen T-shirt.
Hurd, meanwhile, shared the good news Monday afternoon on his Instagram page with the caption, “Hayes Hurd 3•23•20.” The two photos show his son in his arms and another asleep in the hospital.
Morris gave birth just over two weeks after performing at the Houston Rodeo. “If I go into labor during this show, it’s all good because it just means that my kid really wanted to be born in Texas,” the Texas native told the crowd, according to the Houston Chronicle.
“30 hours of labor ended with an emergency c-section … not what we planned but I learned pretty quickly that night that having a plan for bringing a human into the world is a fool’s errand. All that mattered was that he got here safely,” Morris wrote in a lengthy Instagram caption alongside a sweet photo of her newborn baby boy. “Having him in the middle of a global health crisis was also not in the baby prep books, but here we are.”
The “Girl” songstress continued, setting the scene in her hospital suite as she recovered from the tiring delivery. “Holding him and healing my body in a maternity ward that’s eerily quiet from us not being allowed visitors or family at this time, but strangely serene,” Morris added. “All we hear are monitors beeping and the coos of our infant son. Maybe the sound of the 100th episode of The Office @ryanhurd and I have binged while in here.”
