Zac Hanson, the youngest brother of the band, Hanson, and his wife Kate welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday May 27, 2008. John Ira Shepherd Hanson — who will go by Shepherd, weighed in at 8 lbs 4oz.
“Shepherd is the most wonderful gift we could ever receive. We’re already enjoying every second of this great adventure.”
Zac and Kate are very excited about their new endeavor as parents and know that their new son won’t be without playmates, ever! Shepherd joins cousins Ezra, 5, Penelope, 3 and River 20months, (Taylor and Natalie’s children), the middle Hanson brother — and Everett, 1, (Isaac and Nikki’s son), the oldest Hanson.
Isaac and Nikki will be welcoming their second child into the family next month! It will be really fun to see [the] little ones grow up together,” Zac told PEOPLE in November “I know watching them is going to inspire a lot of music.”
