90’s country music icon Clay Walker and his wife Jessica Craig are now mourning a pregnancy loss.

It had only been a couple of weeks since they announced they were expecting their sixth child together, but they now make the tragic announcement that they lost their baby at 20 weeks pregnant.

The couple already share four sons (Christian, Ezra, Elijah, and William) and one daughter (Mary-Elizabeth). Walker has two older daughters (MaClay, Skylor) from a marriage he was previously in.

Walker sat down with People to discuss the heartbreaking news, telling them:

“The whole family had been waiting for the baby and it was really, just a huge blow.

We had her room ready, her clothes bought – everything, and her name, Eleanora Lindsey.

So, it was a nightmare and still is for my wife.”

Walker goes on to describe the shock that the couple felt after getting the terrible news at such and advanced date in the pregnancy:

“We were at 20 weeks, and we’d already made it through the toughest part. We’ve had five successful full-term pregnancies and five beautiful children.

It’s tough.”

Walker is most prominently known for his work in the 1990’s, releasing hit country songs like “Dreaming With My Eyes Open,” “Then What,” and “What’s It To You.”

Walker and Craig have been married for 16 years, tying the knot in 2007. They have lived a lot of life together in their years of being married, and they are leaning on their friends, family, and faith in this difficult time.

The country music artist goes on to try and describe the pain that himself, his wife, and his family are feeling.

He adds:

“I just don’t know how moms make it through the rest of their lives with that kind of pain. It’s just so, so deep.

And you know, as a husband and a father, not being able to do anything about it, not being able to protect my wife’s feelings or the baby, sucks.

There’s no understanding this for me, and especially for a mom that’s the greatest mom. She just tries to be the best mom and wife that she can be. It’s unfair.”
