Exclusive: Walker Hayes and Wife Expecting Seventh Child

posted by Dustin Stout - 

Walker Hayes could start a basketball team with just his children.

The rising country star told CMT’s Cody Alan exclusively backstage at the CMA Awards that he and wife Laney are expecting their seventh little one.

“Dude, we’ve got one on the way by the way. We just found out No. 7 is coming around the corner. Big news on the home front,” the “You Broke Up With Me” singer told Cody.

Walker adds he knew adding to his family was the right decision when his debut single started to take off on country radio.

“I just love [kids] so much. We just hadn’t had that formal conversation, like ‘Are we done or are we not?’ I guess we’re not,” he says. “Just being honest, I thought maybe I would wait until I knew [‘You Broke Up with Me’] was going to be that breakthrough. I think it’s going to be. I think we’ll be OK, and I think I’ll be able to do this for a living.”

Laney added in red carpet conversation with Cody that “one more’s not going to create too much more chaos. We’re already pretty chaotic.”

No official word when the next Baby Hayes will make its debut.
