As the "If I Could Make a Living" artist looks forward to baby No. 6, he is also celebrating the 30th anniversary of his storied career, which includes 11 No. 1 singles, 32 songs on the Billboard charts, four RIAA Platinum albums and two Certified Gold albums.
Walker kicked off his Country Side Tour in February, which runs through May into July.
Before welcoming son Christiaan, the "Need a Bar Sometimes" singer told PEOPLE that Mary-Elizabeth was hoping for a sister but quickly came around to having another brother in the mix.
"The shock of it being another boy, for Mary, it lasted a couple of hours. There were some tears shed, I won't lie," Walker said with a laugh. "It was because of expectation, but that was overcome with the thought that we're not in control of that. We don't decide if it's a boy or girl, and she was able to understand that after a while."Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.
