Country star Clay Walker and his wife Jessica Craig are expecting a baby!
The couple made the announcement via statement to E! News. “Jessica and I are beyond excited to be growing our loving family,” Walker says. “There is no greater joy than being a father and I am overwhelmed and humbled to be one six times over!”
The “She Won’t Be Lonely Long” singer teased the exciting news just moments before hitting the red carpet in Las Vegas at the 2017 ACM Awards. “Guess what:)…really…guess what..you’re the first to know :)!” Walker writes on Instagram alongside a photo of he and his wife looking red carpet ready with his hand over her belly.

The couple already share three children together, 9-year-old William Clayton, daughter Mary Elizabeth who’s 8 and 4-year-old son Elijah Craig. Walker also has two additional daughters from a previous marriage, 21-year-old MaClay DaLayne and 18-year-old Skylor ClayAnne.
Walker is gearing up to host his 8th annual Chords of Hope benefit concert in June at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley. It is being presented in partnership with Walker’s own charity, Band Against MS. The country singer has been living with multiple sclerosis since 1996.
Donations will go to the MS Center at Vanderbilt in Nashville, in addition to Walker’s organization, with the event raising more than $200,000 for the Vanderbilt center to date. “The amount of money that continues to get raised to help support research and education through BAMS and the MS Center at Vanderbilt is incredible,” Walker says in a press release. “This night is truly a special one for me and for Music City!”
