Country music singer Maren Morris skyrocketed to fame in 2016 with her hit “My Church” and her estranged husband, Ryan Hurd, had been right there with her. From the CMA Awards to the Grammys, the duo never missed an opportunity to publicly support one another. Now that the “Craving You” songstress has filed for divorce, fans are wanting to learn more about her partner of nearly a decade.

Who Is Maren Morris’ Estranged Husband Ryan Hurd?

Ryan is from Kalamazoo, Michigan, and is known for songs like “To a T,” “Her Name Was Summer” and “Love in a Bar.” He’s an RCA recording artist and, according to his personal site, “a rough-cut romantic.” His personality, much like his music, is “simultaneously amiable and distant, respectful and edgy, commanding and supportive.” In addition, Ryan’s also written songs for big names in the country music biz like Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan.

Not to mention, he became the inspiration for some of Maren’s most iconic songs, like “I Can’t Love You Anymore,” from her Humble Quest record.

Do Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd Have Kids?

While it’s obvious Maren and Ryan are both super talented musically, they’re also amazing parents. When the duo revealed in an October 2019 Instagram post that “The Middle”” songstress was expecting, Ryan gushed over his partner. “MY BOYS CAN SWIM. BABY BOY HURD 2020! Look at her … cannot believe this life with this girl,” he captioned a photo of the two from what looked to be a maternity shoot, adding, “Also, thank you George Constanza for this caption that I’ve been sitting on my entire life.”

The duo welcomed son Hayes in March 2020. Since then, they’ve shared glimpses of their lives with their only child but are always protective about hiding his face.

How Long Had Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd Been Together?

The former couple first met back in 2013 and took their friendship to the next level in 2015. They got engaged two years later. “We had been friends for only a couple of years, but there was always this writing chemistry in the room, and eventually, the timing of it was undeniable,” Maren told People in January 2017. The duo wed on March 24, 2018.

After they welcomed their son, Ryan became protective of his brood. In July 2020, he defended his wife after she received backlash for drinking an alcoholic beverage alongside their 3-month-old son on a pool floatie.

“I’d just like to say my wife usually doesn’t need me to defend her, but she’s a great mom, and my kid was not unsafe on a float in one foot of water being held by an adult with five people watching so she could get a picture,” he shared via on July 2. “Hayes has two coast guard-approved life jackets that he wears. Also, sometimes moms have a drink, and homegirl earned it,” he continued before adding another tweet, “Later, nerds.”
