On March 20, country music superstar Maren Morris issued an eviction notice to her unborn son. However, it wasn’t until March 23, that her baby boy finally got the hint and made his way into the world.
Now that her son is little over a week old, Morris opened up about her labor and delivery experience in a lengthy Instagram post. Following the birth of their baby boy, Morris and her husband, Ryan Hurd, announced that they had named their little bundle of joy, Hayes Andrew Hurd. Morris also called their first child together, the “love of our lives.”
She then took to Instagram again where she opened up about what went down before meeting Hayes for the first time. “Thirty hours of labor ended with an emergency c-section,” Morris began. “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,” the glowing mom continued. “Having him in the middle of a global health crisis 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. All we hear are monitors beeping and the coos of our infant son. Maybe the sound of the 100th episode of ‘The Office’ Ryan and I have binged while in here.”
Morris went on to write about the “admiration” they have for the doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals “that took care of Hayes and me.” However, as Morris admitted just how much admiration they have for those who have cared for them “cannot be measured in this post.”
“They risked their health every day to make sure ours was okay. I can’t think of anything more selfless than that. Ultimately, I can’t thank every single mother enough for going through what you’ve gone through because I had NO idea how hard it could be, and I’m a measly 4 days in. The world is changing before our eyes and so am I. That’s been a peaceful thing to cling to during these uncertain times. Thinking of you all.”
Shortly after sharing her birth story, Morris shared a close-up photo of her handsome baby boy in celebration of his due date on March 31. “Happy due date, little guy,” Morris wrote. “We loved getting you an extra week.”
