“Love of our lives,” the Grammy winner captioned their infant’s Instagram debut.
Later that same month, the “My Church” singer went into detail on her emergency C-section after 30 hours of labor. “I learned pretty quickly that night that having a plan for bringing a human into the world is a fool’s errand,” the Texas native wrote via Instagram. “All that mattered was that he got here safely.”
The new mom went on to write, “Having him in the middle of [the coronavirus pandemic] was also not in the baby prep books, but here we are. 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 deleted a few photos of her newborn in July after she was slammed by mom-shamers for posting a picture of herself and her son sitting on a float in the lake. The little one wasn’t wearing a life jacket.
“Honestly, I get so many criticisms of my motherhood on anything I post of Hayes, so I may just discontinue posting photos of him,” the American Music Award nominee wrote via Twitter at the time, “Sucks but it’s kind of where I’m at. … We talked about curbing posting photos anyway now that he’s a little bit older, but the added crap from (mostly other moms) folks definitely forced our hand.”
As for Hurd, the “To a T” singer called his wife “a great mom.” He tweeted, “My kid was not unsafe on a float in 1 feet of water being held by an adult with 5 people watching so she could get a picture. Hayes has 2 coast guard approved life jackets that he wears. Also, sometimes moms have a drink, and homegirl earned it. Later, nerds.”
