Taylor Hanson Receives Backlash After Announcing Wife Is Pregnant With Their 7th Child

Taylor Sakellis 18 Sep 2020

If 2020 makes me want to say anything it's Mmmbop, ba duba dop Ba du bop, ba duba dop, Ba du bop, ba duba dop, Ba du, yeah-e-yeah!

Of course, those are the lyrics to the iconic '90s boy band Hanson's song "Mmmbop" which is arguably one of the best brother boy band songs of all TIME.

I'm looking at you, Jonas Brothers!

For those of you who are still keeping up with the Hanson brothers, you'd know that brother Taylor has been happily married to Natalie Anne Bryan since 2002.

Back in 2017, Taylor opened up to Today’s Parent about the "innate ability [for] compromise" that comes with having a big family.

"[You] work with others and realize that the entire world doesn’t revolve around you," he explained.

"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 continued: "You’re already included in a group. I see that with my 5-year-old, who is the fifth child. You can see it in her sense of confidence: She is so comfortable being in situations because she sees a lot of love and feels safe. She kind of looks around at the world and feels optimistic. In so many situations, she has somebody beside her that she trusts."

"It gives you the sense that you have an identity that’s connected to something bigger."

"Oh god, another one?! Jesus Christ [that's] excessive lol," commented user @nikkibalzzz.

"Yikes... the world is literally on fire but keep having kids... it’s a good idea..." agreed @jennnnnnnUnw.

"Just what the overpopulated world needs, more kids. Well good thing is at least they can hopefully afford it and aren't just doing it to be relevant," wrote @lovetosmile1970.

"7!!! Wow you guys don't have tv or anything??" joked @ i_am_fiorela182.

To say the comments were filled with LOTS of unsolicited advice would be an understatement.

Some fans were commenting that it wasn't "healthy" for Natalie to be pregnant so many times, while other asked why the couple hadn't considered adoption.

Thankfully, not all the comments were negative.

User @brooklynrose84 lightened the mood by commenting: "If Taylor Hanson was my husband I would have 7 kids too."

CAN I GET AN AMEN?!
