Maren Morris has been shamed online, she recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Hayes Andrew, back in March. Like so many moms out there, she loves to share photos of her child online. But one of Maren’s photos got so much flack, her husband, Ryan Hurd, had to defend her.
The image in question was posted on July 1st which had Maren with Hayes lying on her lap and a drink in her hand while lounging on a fancy floating car raft and captioned the picture “Motor-floatin”
Maren took a lot of heat for the photo, with many demanding answers as to why Hayes didn’t have a life vest on and why Maren was drinking while holding a young infant. The backlash caused Ryan to post a lengthy message on Twitter. He wrote, “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 1 foot of water being held by an adult with 5 people watching so she could get a picture.”
Later, he added, “Hayes has 2 coast guard approved life jackets that he wears. Also, sometimes moms have a drink, and homegirl earned it.” Finally, Ryan finished it with a simple, QUOTE; “later, nerds”
Maren added her own thoughts on Twitter, saying, QUOTE; “Honestly, I get so many criticisms of my motherhood on anything I post of Hayes, so I may just discontinue posting photos of him. Sucks but it’s kind of where I’m at.” Then, she added, “We talked about curbing posting photos anyway now that he’s a little bit older, but the added crap from (mostly other moms) folks definitely forced our hand.”
