Midland’s Mark Wystrach’s New Baby Suffers Medical Emergency

The Broken-Heart Emoji Is Every New Parent's Worst Nightmare

UPDATE: Baby Sunny has a clean bill of health, and Wystrach and Haney will be able to bring her home on Saturday (Nov. 30). “Sundance ‘Sunny’ Leon came into this world with a bang! It’s been a wild and unexpected week in the hospital, but we are all doing great and loving being together,” Haney wrote on Instagram. “So grateful for our amazing doctors and nurses who have taken the best care of us and to our friends and family for all the love, prayers and support! The power of love and positivity is real. Lil Baby Sunny girl is strong, beautiful and an absolute joy! We’ve gotten a clean bill of health and we’re going home tomorrow. Yeehaw! The adventure has begun!!!”

Early on Friday morning (Nov. 29), Midland announced good news and bad news on Twitter.

The good is that the country band’s frontman Mark Wystrach and his wife Ty Haney had welcomed their daughter Sundance “Sunny” Leon Haney-Wystrach, but the bad is that the baby girl’s health concerns would force them to cancel their upcoming tour.

“We regretfully must postpone our upcoming tour due to a medical emergency following the birth of Mark and Ty’s baby. His daughter is expected to make a full recovery, but Mark is unable to be away from home until that happens. We are all incredibly saddened to delay the tour and are working hard to reschedule for next year. Mark and Ty will share more info when they feel comfortable. Further information on the rescheduled dates and refund details if unable to attend will be released next week.”

The two-part tweet ended with a broken-heart emoji.

The newlyweds just tied the knot on Oct. 8, and the baby was expected sometime in November. Haney is the founder and CEO of active-wear apparel company Outdoor Voices.
