Zac Hanson is one proud papa!

The drummer welcomed his third child on Thursday, his rep confirmed to E! News.

This marks the third child for Hanson and his wife Kate, who already have a son John Ira Shepherd, 5, and daughter Junia Rosa Ruth, 2.

The 28-year-old released the following statement to the People, which first had the story:

"We are very excited to share the addition of George Abraham Walker Hanson to our growing family. Abraham is healthy and we are happily sharing a little down time together as a family."

Looks like Prince George has some competition with this lengthy moniker!

But jokes aside, the boy bander's little one arrived at 8 lbs. 7 oz.—which was coincidentally the same birth weight as his older sister!

Baby George is about to join a large family filled with plenty of cousins to play with!

Zac's brother Isaac has two children, Everette and Monroe, while Taylor has five wee ones: Ezra, Penelope, RiverViggo and Wilhelmina.


The boys have been on the road to promote their latest album, Anthem, but are slowing things down to focus on family.

Congrats to the new family of five!
