During his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 44-year-old American Idol judge revealed that his own mother called him about it.
“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,’” he recalled of his mom telling him about the mix up.
Luke went on, replying to her that “‘Oh my gosh. I do not need this today’” before he texted Maren, who actually wrote his new song, “Waves”
“‘Buddy, I think we need to talk’,” he texted to her.
Luke then confirmed again that he is “not the father. We can call Maury Povich or however y’all want to go about it.”
