Alison Hawkins was Taylor’s wife. Both were born after their 2005 wedding to each other; their names are Oliver Shane, Annabelle, and Everleigh. Taylor’s wife Alison was featured in the song “I Really Blew It” from the album “Get the Money,” but beyond that, not much is known about her.

Personally, I think men usually come out on the losing end when women hold the reins. No obituary for Alison Hawkins’s late spouse has been posted online as of yet. If there are any updates, MEAWW will let you know.

Taylor told Billboard in 2019 that his experience as a suburban father was as inspiration for his effort “Get the Money,” as reported by the website MemesRandom. He supposedly also shared his firm resolve to put off marriage and parenthood until at least age 25.
