Luke Bryan’s Mom Called Him About Being ‘the Father’ of Maren Morris’ Baby: ‘We Can Call Maury’

Luke Bryan appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday, May 4th where she asked him about being misidentified as the father of Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd’s baby.

He told Ellen, “So, I’m having coffee, and my mother calls me and she goes, ‘I’m sitting here reading some gossip thing … It says you fathered Maren Morris’ child.’ I go, ‘Oh my gosh. I do not need this today,’”

Ryan co-wrote Luke’s latest single “Waves” and Luke said he reached out to him right away. “I shared [the article] from my mother straight to Ryan, and I said, ‘Buddy, I think we need to talk,'” Bryan joked. “I am not the father. We can call Maury Povich in or however y’all want to go about it.”


Luke, who loves a good prank, also got pranked by Ellen.
