You probably knew that the adorable Hanson boys were all grown up. They’re still out there, touring and covering Taylor Swift songs, after all. But were you aware precisely how grown-up the three Hanson brothers are? Well, allow us to potentially blow your mind a bit: Today middle brother Taylor Hanson welcomed his fifth child, a baby girl by the name of Wilhemina Jane Hanson.

Taylor’s not the only prolific breeder in the band. Older bro Isaac and baby-of-the-band Zach also have two moppets each. If you’re counting along, that brings us to a grand total of nine Hanson Juniors—enough to fill out an entire baseball starting lineup. Here’s your guide to the MMMTots (yes we did!) of Team Hanson.
