Country star Thomas Rhett's family has gotten bigger with the arrival of their new baby.
The singer-songwriter and his wife Lauren Akins first announced that they were expecting back in February. To add to the surprise, they revealed that they were also in the midst of an adoption process.
We're so happy to announce that we are pregnant & in the process of adopting a child from Africa! Safe to say life is about to get crazy! 😜 pic.twitter.com/Yhi088mPmy— Thomas Rhett (@ThomasRhett) February 15, 2017
“We tried to get pregnant for a little bit before,” Lauren told People. “It was a good chunk of time and our family is extremely fertile, so I was expecting it to happen easily. I was like, ‘Maybe this is the Lord’s way of telling me adoption is what he wants me to do.’ And I was okay with that.”
“It’s funny to me how we tried so hard and then we didn’t try at all and it happened!” she continued. “We feel like it’s all part of the plan.”
Now, Rhett and Atkins are parents to 21-month-old Willa Gray, who they adopted from Uganda in May, and a baby girl who made her debut on August 12 in Nashville, Tennessee.
The happy new parents have already shared photos of their new bundle of joy and she's adorable!
