Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson and Zac Hanson formed their band in 1992, and while they’ve never stopped performing, they’ve all taken on a new role over the years — fatherhood!
The band has 15 children between them — Isaac is a father of three, Taylor is a dad of seven, and Zac is a parent to five — and the majority of their kids go by their middle names, following family tradition. (Isaac’s first name is Clarke, while Taylor’s is Jordan.)
Taylor was the first of his brothers to start a family and welcomed his and wife Natalie Hanson‘s eldest son, Ezra, in 2002. Daughter Penelope arrived three years later, followed by River, Viggo, Wilhelmina and Indy. Their seventh child (and third daughter), Maybellene, was born in 2020.
Taylor gushed to Today’s Parents in November 2017 about the benefits of a “bigger family,” explaining, “Everybody develops this innate ability to figure out how to compromise, work with others and realize that the entire world doesn’t revolve around you. It also encourages you to be an individual because you can clearly see your differences from a brother or sister. I see that with my kids: They’re very different, but I see that they love and respect one another.”
He went on to say that his kids were like “a crew,” as they’ve gone on tour with their dad and uncles since they were little.
In 2017, Natalie explained why the whole family would be embarking on Hanson’s String Theory tour.
“Because of the timing of these shows and everything going on with us, we decided now was a great time to stick together and do this as a family,” Natalie wrote via Instagram at the time. “So, we are back on the road! It’s been awhile since we’ve had the whole crew with us full time and its crazy to think how little they were in years past. Now we have these big kids who are so cool and fun and help out big time. So all you parents of little ones out there, hang in there! It gets awesome!”
As for Isaac and Zac, the brothers have three and five kids, respectively. Isaac shares sons Everett and Monroe and daughter Odette with his wife, Nicole Hanson, while Zac and wife Kathryn Hanson are the parents of sons Shepherd, Abraham and Quincy and daughters Junia and Lucille.
In February 2021, the “Broken Angel” singer exclusively told Us Weekly that they were stopping at confirmed that Baby No. 5. “We feel really fulfilled and complete with five!” Zac shared.
He added:“We always try to make music a really natural part of our kids’ lives and encourage them to enjoy and pursue it without feeling pressure to perform or make a career out of it.”
