Country-ish singer Maren Morris announced her pregnancy last fall. While she and husband Ryan Hurd are excited to meet their baby boy in March, some people are excited for her pregnancy posts to stop.

Instead of calling out one person or replying to a single message, Morris hopped on Twitter to provide a blanket statement addressing the trolls - and we thought her response was both hilarious and classy.

"People will comment on my photos, 'we get it, you're pregnant,'" she began.

"Sorry, bozo, but I'm not currently touring and I don't have any [expletive] hair vitamins or tummy tea to sell you. The only thing currently going on for me is my pregnancy!"


Morris' most recent Instagram update, posted January 26th, cleared up why she wasn't seen at last night's GRAMMY Awards despite being nominated in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category.

"Back at the farm," her caption read, followed by the "#babymoon." The couples' getaway was at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee.

Both Morris and Hurd were among the legion of celebrities who spoke of their sadness regarding the sudden death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant.

"Horrible. I can't imagine what those families are enduring today," Morris' tweet read. Her condolences came in a quoted retweet of her husband's sympathies.

"My brother never traded me his Kobe rookie card," Hurd wrote. "So sad for his daughters and family. Sitting here with my tiny family sending nothing but love to them."

Amidst the almost-arrival of their son, Morris has confirmed that she has been working on new music, and she believes he is already inspiring her.

"This little guy might be a big source of inspiration," she told last November. "I had to write the day that I found out I was pregnant, and I will say, I was writing with the Love Junkies. They were the first people I told after I told Ryan, and they were just so excited. They're all mothers."

The November 2019 interview came after she won the Album of the Year prize at the Country Music Awards. She also credits her unborn son for her dynamite performance at the ceremony.

"Seconds before the curtain lifted and I was going to do my performance tonight, he started kicking," Morris said at the time. It was the first week she started to feel the baby kick. "I got my ultrasound this week and he waved at me, and I felt like he was sort of telling me good luck. And so it worked out. He's my good luck charm."

Morris is slated to perform at the historic Houston Rodeo on Saturday, March 7th.
