In addition to his parents, Callahan is also survived by big brothers Beckham, 10, and Chamberlain, 7. Laura and David have not shared further details regarding their youngest son's passing. The Frisco Texas Fire Department previously confirmed to E! News it responded to a drowning call involving the Walker family, but declined to provide further information.


"We are completely broken-hearted to share that we lost our precious Callahan in a tragic accident last week," Lauren and David wrote in a joint Instagram post shared Feb. 12. "He was such a blessing and brought so much joy to our whole family."

The couple continued, "Cal-Bear was absolutely adored by his big brothers and loved them beyond measure. As parents we are completely shattered at the loss of our baby boy. We take comfort knowing he is being held in the arms of Jesus. We would be honored to have your prayers for peace and strength over our family during this impossible time."
