His wife also shared a picture of their baby boy on Instagram. The photo showed the infant sleeping, and it revealed his full name: Claude Indiana Emmanuel Hanson.
Their rep confirmed to PEOPLE that they welcomed the little boy on December 26. He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“Our new little man, Indy, is the best gift our family could imagine. His arrival brings with it a new sense of adventure and excitement for the future,” the couple told PEOPLE.
This is the sixth child for the couple. They have to girls, Wilhelmina “Willa” Jane, 6, and Penelope “Penny” Anne, 13, and three more boys, Viggo Moriah, 10, River Samuel, 12, and Jordan Ezra, 16.
The couple announced that they were expecting their sixth child in August. The news came shortly after they celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary in June.
35-year-old Hanson announced the news via Instagram with a photo of their entire family. Their five children are daughters Wilhelmina “Willa” Jane, 5½, and Penelope “Penny” Anne, 13, plus sons Viggo Moriah, 9½, River Samuel, 12 next month, and 15-year-old Jordan Ezra.
“What’s better than being a dad of five? Perhaps being a dad of six,” read the caption. “Baby Hanson coming in December and we are over the moon.”
Natalie posted another photo of their family.
She captioned it, “Taylor and I are so thrilled to share the news that baby number six is coming this December! Ezra, Penny, River, Viggo and especially Wilhelmina can’t wait to be big brothers and sisters again!”
In a post on her blog, Natalie shared more photos from the shoot, and she revealed that she shares Taylor's feelings about expanding their family.
“Taylor and I and all the children are so excited about the new family member coming this December! More than ever I realize how time flies and every moment with these people counts.”
Congratulations to the couple on their new addition!
