Country singer Clay Walker revealed Tuesday (April 25, 2023) that his wife, Jessica, has suffered a miscarriage at 20 weeks.

The heartbreaking news comes just two weeks after the couple announced that they were expecting their sixth child, a daughter. In an interview from his Texas home, Walker told PEOPLE that the loss of the baby was “a huge blow.”

“We had her room ready, her clothes bought — everything, and her name, Eleanora Lindsey,” the 53-year-old said. “So, it was a nightmare and still is for my wife. 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.”

The singer told the publication that there had been so signs that the baby wasn’t doing well. During a 13-week ultrasound the baby seemed healthy and was “doing acrobats.”

“We were laughing so hard because she was so active. And just everything was so perfect,” said Walker.

The “Hypnotize the Moon” singer expressed how difficult the loss has been on his wife.

“I just don’t know how moms make it through the rest of their lives with that kind of pain,” he says. “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.”

“It felt like we got run over by a train and just watching my wife suffer through that,” Walker added. “I feel for all the women out there who have been through a miscarriage, just because you’re losing a child.”

Clay Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1996 and told PEOPLE that he never questioned God about his diagnosis. But, he claimed that his first question to God “if I make it to heaven” is going to be about the miscarriage.

“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.”

Clay and Jessica have been married for 15 years and share four sons (Christaan (2), Ezra (5), Elijah (10), William (14),  and one daughter, Mary-Elizabeth (13). Walker also has two grown daughters, Skylor and MaClay, from a previous relationship.
