Walker Hayes is a man of many talents and one of those is being a doting dad to six kids, with a seventh on the way. Walker and wife Laney are making it all work these days, but that doesn’t mean the kids are as enthused about things as dear ol’ dad.

Recently, Walker received the very good news that his music video for “You Broke Up With Me” is nominated for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards. (The awards also happen to be the same week that baby seven is due, but that’s not the point right now.) After Walker heard the good news he wanted to share the good times with his kids– the kids were less than overjoyed.

First, Walker spoke to daughter Lela and she played along, “that is amazing, so cool.” When Walker said, “you don’t sound excited,” she said, “do you want to talk to Chapel?” Chapel was a bit more excited, but not really. Eventually, Walker just asked to talk to his wife, but she was asleep.
