Clay Walker is officially a father of seven. 

The country hitmaker, 51, and his wife, Jessica, welcomed their fifth child together (his seventh child overall) on Tuesday (Jan. 5) in Houston, Texas. People reports that their son, Christiaan Michael Walker, weighed in at 7 lbs., 4 oz. and measured 20.5 inches long.

“Baby Christiaan (Germanic spelling) Michael Walker and Mama are doing great! Our whole family has been anxiously awaiting his arrival! He’s perfect in every way,” the “Need a Bar Sometimes” singer told the publication.

“He is surrounded by siblings who are constantly doting on him. I could not be more proud of Jessica and her devotion to motherhood and me. All of our children are blessed to call her mother. He will grow up a tough little cowboy Texan.”

Christiaan Michael joins siblings Ezra Stephen, 3, Elijah Craig, 7, Mary-Elizabeth, 11, and William Clayton, 12, as well as his daughters from a previous marriage: Skylor, 21, and MaClay, 25. 

Baby Christiaan’s name is a nod to Walker’s great-great-grandfather, who immigrated to the United States in 1808 and found a home in Texas. 

“Everyone called him ‘The Dane,’ and Jess and I are really excited to be able to name [our son] after that man,” he told People in August of 2020. “I always heard the stories about what a great cow man he was, and so as I was growing up, my dad was a cow man and passed that down to me and here I am passing it down to my three sons — soon to be four sons, named after the guy that started it all. So it’s a pretty nice circle of life.”

Clay Walker recently signed with Toby Keith’s record label, Show Dog Nashville. He is currently working on his first studio project for the label.

His latest single, “Need a Bar Sometimes,” is at country radio now. Co-written by Walker with Jaron Boyer, Josh Mirenda and George Birge, “Need a Bar Sometimes” blends Walker’s traditional country roots with somewhat modern production, creating a fresh new sound that fits well within his wheelhouse.
