I have a custom walker menu.( See the code below)

I would like to have my nav menu like this

----------------------------------
Home | link1 | link2 | link3 (5)
----------------------------------

Where 5 is the children count of link3.

Can someone help me to implement this?

Here is my current custom nav walker code.

<?php
/**
 * Cleaner walker for wp_nav_menu()
 *
 * Walker_Nav_Menu (WordPress default) example output:
 *   <li id="menu-item-8" class="menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item-object-page menu-item-8"><a href="/">Home</a></li>
 *   <li id="menu-item-9" class="menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item-object-page menu-item-9"><a href="/sample-page/">Sample Page</a></l
 *
 * Roots_Nav_Walker example output:
 *   <li class="menu-home"><a href="/">Home</a></li>
 *   <li class="menu-sample-page"><a href="/sample-page/">Sample Page</a></li>
 */
class Roots_Nav_Walker extends Walker_Nav_Menu {
  function check_current($classes) {
    return preg_match('/(current[-_])|active|dropdown/', $classes);
  }

  function start_lvl(&$output, $depth = 0, $args = array()) {
    $output .= "\n<ul class=\"dropdown-menu\">\n";
  }

  function start_el(&$output, $item, $depth = 0, $args = array(), $id = 0) {
    $item_html = '';
    parent::start_el($item_html, $item, $depth, $args);

    if ($item->is_dropdown && ($depth === 0)) {
      $item_html = str_replace('<a', '<a class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" data-target="#"', $item_html);
      $item_html = str_replace('</a>', ' <b class="caret"></b></a>', $item_html);

  $classes[] = 'menu-' . $slug;

  $classes = array_unique($classes);

  return array_filter($classes, 'is_element_empty');
}
add_filter('nav_menu_css_class', 'roots_nav_menu_css_class', 10, 2);
add_filter('nav_menu_item_id', '__return_null');
