Hanson and his wife Natalie first met in 2000, and were married two years later.
That same year, the new couple welcomed their first child, a son named Jordan, who was born on Halloween.
Not long afterwards, the pair added three more sons and two more daughters to their family. Maybellene is the newest member of the brood.
In a recent interview with People, Natalie explained her name-selecting process and how she preferred to use ones that were nontraditional or had not been used in years.

‘I like to find gems that are still undiscovered enough to make people squirm just a little when they first hear it, but in time sound completely obvious.’
She also opined that the couple took their time before deciding on Maybellene, adding that they intentionally did not rush the process.
‘Sometimes the perfect name is a longtime love just waiting for the chance to be brought to life, other times you need to explore and patiently search out the name that is waiting for you to discover.’
