Clay Walker, Wife Jessica Expecting Fourth Child
Clay Walker and his wife, Jessica, are expecting their fourth child.
The couple walked the red carpet on Sunday night (April 2) at the 2017 ACM Awards, where Walker posed several times with his hand on his wife’s stomach and even kneeling down to kiss her belly. They teased the news via social media, posting a picture to Instagram that shows Walker with his arm around his wife and his other hand on her abdomen, with the couple smiling into the camera.
“Guess what:)…really…guess what..you’re the first to know:)!” Walker writes to accompany the picture.
They confirmed the news on Monday morning (April 3) in a press release, adding that the baby is due in the fall.
“Jessica and I are beyond excited to be expecting a new addition to our loving family,” Walker says. “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!”
The scene is a familiar one for the Walkers. In 2013, the couple revealed they were expecting their third child by walking the ACMs red carpet, with Jessica very visibly pregnant. They welcomed their third child, son Elijah Craig Walker, in June of 2013.

In 2008 the couple also revealed they were expecting by showing up at a red carpet event with Jessica visibly pregnant, then confirmed the news via Walker’s fan club newsletter.
The couple have two other children together; son William, who is 8, and 7-year-old daughter Mary.
Walker also has two teenage daughters from his previous marriage. During an interview with Taste of Country prior to the show Walker also admitted he’ll have new music coming in 2017. His album is ready and he’s excited to release a new single in the coming weeks.
