Baby No. 7 on the Way for Walker Hayes
It's six kids and counting for Walker Hayes and his wife, Laney! Hayes tells Taste of Country in a pre-CMA Awards interview that the couple is expecting their seventh child in 2018.
"We're so excited that we're pregnant again," the singer raves. "Just living the dream right now, we're on cloud nine, me and my family. We got good news in the house."
Hayes and his wife have three boys and three girls already, and they already have a name previously picked out for the next baby, officially due in May or June. The "You Broke Up With Me" singer admits that he and his wife decided more than a decade ago that there was no reason he couldn't be a musician and have a large family.
"We just love them, they're amazing," he says of his children. "We're doing it and we love it and we love all of them and I can't wait to see what [sex] this one is."
His kids couldn't be more elated with the news, either — Hayes says his 11-year-old daughter Leila cried because she was so happy about having a new brother or sister. "My kids are losing their minds excited, it was fun to watch," he shares. "We're so fortunate."
Hayes' new album, Boom, is set for release on Dec. 8 and features his breakthrough single, which is currently in the Top 20 on both the Billboard Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts. The country star co-wrote all of the album's tracks, with Shane McAnally serving as producer.
