Taylor Hanson – one-third of the Tulsa-based pop/rock band Hanson – and his wife Natalie have welcomed their fifth child, a daughter with an unusual name.
“Natalie and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our newest family member, Wilhelmina Jane Hanson,” Taylor Hanson told People exclusively. “She arrived on Tuesday, Oct. 2, and was welcomed by more love than could fit in the room.”
Taylor, 29, and Natalie, 28, announced to People in April that they were expecting again and revealed in July that they were having a girl.
Wilhelmina joins siblings Ezra, who turns 10 on Oct. 31; Penelope, 7; River, 6; and Viggo, 3½.
“Thinking back on all the children’s names has helped to give me a fresh perspective in choosing the name for the baby GIRL we are expecting in the fall,” Natalie Hanson wrote on her blog for Nameberry.com over the summer, when she related the reasons for each of her four older children’s names. “It has helped to remind me how the right name seems to come at the right time, and how, no matter how ‘perfect’ the choice, it will only be a part of all this little person will become.”
Family is undoubtedly important to the Hanson clan, since Taylor has been making music with his brothers Isaac and Zac since the early 1990s. Hanson just completed a world tour in support of their last album, “Shout It Out,” with sold-out dates throughout Australia. They are now working on their sixth studio album, set for release next year.
