Do three nephews and a niece give Zac baby fever? “I have the cold, not the full fever yet!” he jokes. Says Kate: “We’ll wait a while.”

Zac Hanson knows what you’re thinking. “It’s a crazy thing to think that I am 21,” says the youngest member of Hanson, the band of three fresh-faced brothers that shot to fame in 1997 with the impossibly infectious hit “MMMBop.” Crazier still: All three are married, and Isaac, 26, and Taylor, 24, have kids of their own. Through puberty, weddings and diaper changes, the trio continued making music, and on July 24, they’ll release their eighth album, The Walk, partly recorded in Africa. (The single “Great Divide,” features children from Mozambique and South Africa; all Hanson’s proceeds from its iTunes sales go to HIVSA, an AIDS research center in Africa.) And the entire clan—all 10 of them—will squeeze into a single tour bus this summer. How, exactly? “We want to know too,” jokes Isaac. Taylor imagines the scene this way: “Somebody’s up front doing e-mails, somebody’s in the back trying to wrangle a 4-year-old who’s throwing Legos.” Zac chimes in: “And Cheetos.” Before the madness begins, the Hansons gathered in their hometown of Tulsa and caught up with PEOPLE.
