Former teenage heart-throb Taylor Hanson has been keeping busy.

The MMMBop musician this week announced that he and his wife Natalie are expecting their seventh child together.

Hanson, 37, shared the news with a photo of himself and Natalie, 36, grinning and holding hands while standing in a field.

“The best kind of unexpected,” he said in the caption. “Number seven coming this December.”

The couple married in 2002 and have since had six children: Jordan, 17, Penelope, 15, River, 14, Viggo, 11, Wilhelmina, 7, and Claude, 1.

Natalie shared a similar photo on her own Instagram account shortly after.

“Biggest little surprise in a long time,” read her caption. “Baby number seven coming this December.”

“Our family is thrilled to be welcoming a new member later this year. More than ever, we are especially grateful for this fresh wave of joy,” Hanson said in a statement to People magazine.

Hanson is one of seven children himself and is known best as a member of the band Hanson alongside his brothers Zac and Isaac.

The iconic long-haired pop group rose to fame in the ’90s after bursting onto the scene with MMMBop in 1997.

Eldest brother Isaac, now 39, has three kids – Clarke Everett, 13, James Monroe, 12, and Nina Odette, 6. And Zac, 34, has four children – John Ira Shepherd, 12, Junia Rose Ruth, 9, George Abraham Walker, 6, and Mary Lucille Diana, 4.

While Hanson hasn’t quite had the commercial success of MMMBop in recent years, they have been making music through their own independent record label, 3CG Records.

Given their controversial comments on chart-topper Justin Bieber in 2017, it seems they’re quite happy with their indie status.

During an interview on Hit107 FM in Adelaide three years ago, they called Bieber’s music “chlamydia of the ear”.

Last year, Zac made headlines after he was involved in a horror motorcycle crash that left him with a broken collarbone, three broken ribs and a cracked scapula.
