The Hanson Brothers Laugh About Having 13 Kids Among Them: ‘They’re Really, Really Close’

Issac Hanson, Taylor Hanson and Zac Hanson have a strong bond, having spent over 25 years together playing in their band Hanson and even longer as brothers.

So it should come as no surprise to hear that the 13 kids the threesome have among them are also tight.

“It’s a cool thing,” Zac, 33, revealed on Monday’s episode of the U.K. daytime chat program Lorraine, ahead of their show later that night in Birmingham, England.

“We spend a lot of time together touring, in the studio and around each other, so our kids know each other really, really well,” he explained to host Lorraine Kelly. “They’re really, really close.”

Though he’s the middle child of the brothers (who are the oldest of seven children), Taylor, 35, was the first band member to say, “I do,” marrying wife Natalie Bryant in an intimate ceremony at a small chapel in Georgia in 2002.

They’ve since stayed busy with six kids, including sons Claude Indiana Emmanuel, 6 weeks, Viggo Moriah, 10, River Samuel, 12, and Jordan Ezra, 16, plus daughters Wilhelmina “Willa” Jane, 6, and Penelope “Penny” Anne, 13.

The youngest Hanson member, Zac, married his longtime love Kate Tucker in June 2006 after five years of dating. Together, they have four children: Mary Lucille Diana, 2½, George Abraham Walker, 5, Junia Rosa Ruth, 8, and John Ira Shepherd, 10.

Oldest brother Isaac, 38, was the last of the musical trio to wed. He married Nicole Dufresne in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in October 2006. They have three kids: daughter Nina Odette, 4½, plus sons James Monroe, 10, and Clarke Everett, 11.
