It’s easy to forget sometimes that out favorite country music stars are just like us in the most commonplace moments of life. For example, they miss their spouses when they are forced to be apart from them!
This was displayed beautifully during the time Thomas Rhett had to spend a whole month apart from his pregnant wife Lauren Akins. Lauren was in Uganda on a 147 Million Orphans mission trip and Rhett was on his Home Team Tour.
During the couple’s absence from each other they kept the world updated on the fact they missed each other dearly.
When they were finally reunited the photos showed two people that were simply overjoyed to be back in each other’s arms!
Rhett and his wife have been close since they first met in elementary school, they were truly meant to be. The couple are expecting a baby girl AND just welcomed adopted daughter, Willa Gray, home late last week. Originally the pair decided to postpone trying for a biological child, but those plans soon changed in a big way.
While on a trip to Africa in December, Lauren started to feel sick and soon discovered she was pregnant.
“When we began the adoption process, we said, ‘Let’s wait, let’s give this adopted child his or her time with us and then we’ll continue our family,’ ” Lauren explained to PEOPLE earlier this year. “So I was convinced it was food poisoning.”
“I was in complete and utter shock!” Rhett chimed in. “No one is ever prepared for something like that. It is almost like we suddenly had twins.”
The couple feels incredibly blessed.
“I think the way it all worked out, both of us have such a peace about this whole process, that it’s so right,” Lauren added. “We could not be happier. We feel like 2017 is going to be our big year.”
They aren’t kidding, 2017 is HUGE for these two! Share this coupled up cuteness with others following their story.
