Why Fans Are Losing It Over Maren Morris' Steamy Performance With Ryan Hurd

There's no doubt that Maren Morris and her husband, Ryan Hurd, are relationship goals. The pair met in 2013 — fittingly during a songwriting session (is there anything that the couple cannot do?) — and in 2018, they tied the knot in Nashville.

Morris and Hurd expanded their family pretty quickly, and they welcomed their first son, Hayes, in March 2020. Morris had an intense labor and delivery experience, which she detailed on her Instagram page. She wrote (via Good Morning America), "30 hours of labor ended with an emergency c-section... not what we planned but I learned pretty quickly that night that having a plan for bringing a human into the world is a fool's errand." She continued, "Holding him and healing my body in a maternity ward that's eerily quiet from us not being allowed visitors or family at this time, but strangely serene."

So how is the couple doing today? Keep scrolling to find out why their scintillating performance at the ACM Awards on April 18 caused a stir.
