Congratulations to the happy couple and growing family! We’re hoping for a safe and pleasant pregnancy and birth for Hoyt.

In February, Hoot shared his latest single, a romantic ode to his wife in Endless. “Between getting married, having a new baby, and watching my seven-year-old grow, I’ve been writing a lot of love songs lately,” Hoot explained in a statement to Everything Nash.

Endless is one of my favourite love songs I’ve written alongside Kylie Sackley and Kyle Schlienger. After we finished the song, I immediately knew I wanted to release it. My hope is that everyone who listens to this song can connect with it in some way.”

Hoot and Hoyt married on 7 March 2021; in September 2023, Hoyt celebrated her birthday.
