Clay Walker, Wife Jessica Expecting Fourth Child
Baby No. 4 is on the way for Clay Walker and his wife Jessica! The couple officially announced the news via a press release on Monday morning (April 3), but the news was pretty much out after they walked the red carpet at the 2017 ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 2).
Walker and his wife teased their big news on social media on Sunday: They shared on Instagram a photo of Walker with an arm around Jessica and a hand on her belly, and captioned it, "Guess what :) … really … guess what ... you’re the first to know :)!” On the 2017 ACM Awards red carpet, photographers caught Walker kissing his wife's stomach; readers can see those photos in the gallery above.
According to the press release, Walker's fourth child is due in the fall.
“Jessica and I are beyond excited to be expecting a new addition to our loving family,” the singer says in the release. "There is no greater challenge nor achievement than being a father, and I am beyond blessed and humbled to be one six times over. 2017 is certainly going to be a great year filled with our family growing and new music, and I am ecstatic about both!"
Country Music's Cutest Baby Bumps
In 2013, the Walkers revealed that they were expecting their third child, Elijah Craig, while walking the ACM Awards red carpet; Elijah was born that June, so that year, Jessica was very visibly pregnant. In 2008, they also shared pregnancy news by appearing at a red carpet event, then confirming the news through Walker’s fan club newsletter.
In addition to Elijah, the couple has two other children together: a son, William, who is 8, and a 7-year-old daughter, Mary. From a previous marriage, Walker has two teenage daughters, MaClay DaLayne and Skylor ClayAnne, as well.
On the 2017 ACM Awards red carpet, Walker told Taste of Country that he's got new music coming this year. The album is ready to go, and a new single will be out in the coming weeks.
