Maren Morris mom-shaming

Singer Ryan Hurd is defending his country star wife Maren Morris against mom-shaming critics online.

The first-time mother received backlash after sharing a now-deleted image of herself on June 30, floating in a lake on a giant inflatable as she sipped what appeared to be an alcoholic drink, while her and Ryan's three-month-old son Hayes laid on her chest.

Many claimed Maren was putting her baby at risk of drowning by failing to fit him with a life jacket, while trolls also targeted her for seemingly enjoying a boozy beverage on the open water.

Ryan decided to address the negativity and take aim at the haters, insisting Maren is entitled to have a drink with their son if she wants to.

"I'd just like to say, my wife usually doesn't need me to defend her, but she's a great mom," he wrote on Twitter on Thursday. "My kid was not unsafe on a float in 1 feet of water being held by an adult with 5 people watching so she could get a picture."

Ryan also emphasised the couple puts safety first for its son any time he is on the water: "Hayes has 2 coast guard approved life jackets that he wears," he continued. "Also, sometimes moms have a drink, and homegirl earned it. Later, nerds."

Ryan's remarks came a day after Maren dismissed the criticism, but admitted it was making her reconsider sharing images of her boy online.

"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."

"I mean, we talked about curbing posting photos anyway now that he's a little bit older, but the added c**p from (mostly other moms) folks definitely forced our hand," she added.

The Bones hitmaker Maren married songwriter Ryan in 2018 after three years of dating.
