They had us Mmm-bopping all the way to our pre-teen dances but Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson are now grown up with wives and a tribe of children of their own. And when we say tribe, we actually mean football team ’cause there are A LOT of them.
14 mini Hansons to be exact. Hanson 2.0 perhaps?
Check out these recent pics to see the grown-up Hanson brothers and their adorable children living the extended family dream.
Hanson brothers then and now
If you are unsure who these three brothers are, allow me to bring you up to speed. Back in the 90s, Hanson was pop royalty. The three brothers had long hair, wore plaid shirts, and sang their little teenage angst hearts out.
Incredibly enough, they weren’t even teens when they founded the band. Isaac was 11, Taylor, nine, and Zac was only six years old.
That was back in 1992 and the boys are still making music together, nearly 30 years later. They recently put out a Christmas album and went on tour in 2019.
Beer = Music = Awesome
Another fun fact about the Hanson brothers. They LOVE beer. So much so they founded The Hanson Brothers Beer Co. based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They donate a portion of their sales to charity, give away a free song with every bottle of beer, and go by the formula, “Beer + Music = Awesome.”
But what about their personal lives? Here’s what we discovered after a bit of Insta-stalking:
Isaac is the eldest Hanson brother and the guitarist. He is actually the oldest of seven kids but only three of them were part of the Hanson band.
Now Isaac is a dashing 39-year-old daddy, married to Nicole Dufrense, with three little Hansons running around.

- James Monroe, 12
- Nina Odette, 6
Taylor was the middle Hanson brother and rocked the long stringy locks as a boy. He was a total teenage heartthrob and it’s so crazy to see him all grown up. Now Taylor sprouts some impressive facial hair in place of his long locks and tots around a tribe of kids. Seven of them, in fact. Well, almost seven – his wife is expecting Baby #7 any day now.
Taylor is married to Natalie Bryant and they got married in Georgia in 2002. They then didn’t waste any time procreating a little band of their own.

- Wilhelmina “Willa” Jane, seven
- Claude Indiana Emmanuel, 21 months
- Baby #7, due December 2020
Zac is the youngest of the Hanson clan at 34. He was the drummer and rocked the surfer look. Now he rocks dark hair and a man bun. By the looks of his Insta page, he’s really into travel and video games.
Zac’s also dad to four Hansonettes with his wife, Kate Tucker.

Bros before anything else
The boys admit they still spend A LOT of time together and that their kids are all really close.
It’s a cool thing,” Zac said in an interview last year. “We spend a lot of time together touring, in the studio and around each other, so our kids know each other really, really well.”
Well, you know what they say, a family that plays together, stays together.
