Maren Morris Says She 'Lucked Out' With 'Laid Back' Baby Hayes

Maren Morris and her husband, Ryan Hurd, hit the new parent jackpot with their first child, son Hayes Andrew.

"Ryan and I are both pretty laid back. We kind of lucked out having a very chill baby," the singer told People. "We’re pretty chill people, so maybe that’s reflected in our kid. We’re learning every day."

Of course, there are still some habits that the first-time mom and dad are trying to break. Morris goes on to explain that they have to watch the way they speak to Hayes and the way they speak to their two dogs, June and Pancake.

"There are habits we're trying to break. Like, not talking to him in a high-pitched baby voice is so hard, but I don't want to talk to him like I do my dogs," she said. "I was reading a French parenting book [that said] your kid isn't the boss, you are. That's been a thing we're trying to stick by."

At 6-months-old, Hayes is starting to expand his diet a bit, which Morris says hasn't been much of an issue.

"We have started him on some baby food," she said. "He's been pretty good with everything we've given him, so hopefully we don't have a picky eater."

The "Girl" also singer explained that Hayes is getting close to reaching yet another significant milestone. "I feel like he's just about to start to crawl," she added. "He's getting his butt in the air — I feel like he's about to launch forward!"

Morris and Hurd wed in 2018, five years after meeting while co-writing a song for Tim McGraw. They welcomed their first child in March of 2020
