“Motor-floatin’,” Morris, 30, captioned the photo onto Twitter, which reveals her holding 3-month-old Hayes Andrew since they rested in a Funboy Golf Cart Pool Float. Making the mother-son moment more adorable, Morris and Hayes wore matching Mott50 swimsuits.
Hurd, 33, quickly arrived to the”My Church” singer’s shield, firing back at critics :”I’d like to mention, my wife usually doesn’t need me to defend her, but she’s a great mother, and my kid wasn’t unsafe on a float in 1 feet of water being held by an adult with 5 people viewing so she could get a photo.”
Hurd continued, saying that Hayes”has 2 coast guard approved life jackets that he wears.”
“Additionally, occasionally mothers have a beverage,” Hurd said of this canned drink in Morris’ hands. “Homegirl made it”
Hurd wasn’t the only one to speak out in support of the country crooner. Several fans defended Morris with one stating ,”Seriously? Leave the woman alone. Let her like a photo and moment with her infant! You can clearly see it is shallow water. Ffs.” Related video: Maren Morris gave birth to her first child“Most moms may look at this photo and know just what’s happening in the photo. Like do you really think that they simply floated around all day like this? Like perhaps it was a minute or 2 window to have a cute theme photo? Ffs. I hate it here,” another user composed on Twitter.
“Honestly, I receive numerous criticisms of my motherhood on anything I post of Hayes, so I may just discontinue posting photos of him. Sucks but it is kind of where I’m at,” Morris tweeted.
Morris has since deleted the photo — and the other photos of Hayes — from her social media accounts.
In May, Hurd opened about welcoming a baby together with Morris amid the pandemic.
“It’s a little harder since we can’t really have anybody over to see our baby, but I feel as if we are very blessed in that we’ve avoided a great deal of hardships that other artists have had to confront, because we have not had to really cancel several displays,” he clarifies. “We’re really lucky to be here learning how to become a family of three and it has been really an wonderful time in our own lives.”
“You imagine what it’s going to be like, and then it ends up occurring — and it feels like you couldn’t imagine ever going back to just being the two of you,” Hurd says. “So we are really fortunate to have him here and have both of these ”
