In a post celebrating the pregnancy of her bassist, Maren Morris took some time to drop some mom-to-be knowledge on artists everywhere. The “GIRL” singer shared a shot of her along with Annie Clements, and put everyone on notice that you don’t have to choose between music and being a mom.
“So unbelievably happy for you,” she writes about Clements. “I love that we’ll get to experience this new-mom-on-the-road life together.”
“I know there are so many women who feel like they have to choose between being a touring musician and starting a family. I never wanted my people to choose. I think it’s a great conversation to have if you’re an artist who employs women. So let’s shred for 90 minutes and then go rock these babes to sleep on the bus with a glass of wine.”
In October, Morris announced that she was pregnant with a boy, a twist after Maren had spent the year strongly supporting women with her album GIRL and her all-female World Tour. "The irony is just too rich that after a year of living in the 'GIRL' headspace, the universe would give us a baby boy to even things out," she wrote as she announced the news. "See you in 2020, little one."
