Getting used to a brand new country, home, and family is a lot to take in all at once, but Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins’ daughter Willa Gray is adjusting like a champion! The 18-month-old from Uganda made her big debut in the United States on Thursday, May 11th and has been stealing hearts ever since.
Proud parents Thomas and Lauren love sharing their sweet daughter’s antics and cute snapshots via their social media feeds— and we can’t get enough!
Over the weekend, the toddler got to enjoy some mother-daughter pampering with a special trip to The Dry House salon, which is co-owned by Dierks Bentley’s wife, Cassidy Black. We think Willa approves of her pigtails paired with mom’s sunglasses. Check out her super cute response to Lauren’s reaction below!
Aw. The family is enjoying every second spent together and Rhett does his best to include his two ladies on his tour. The country music star recently opened up to The Advocate newspaper about how he feels stepping away from home while on the road, “I’ve texted a bunch of my artist buddies about that. I texted Jason Aldean the other day and said, ‘How do you ever leave the house and not feel guilty? ‘He said that feeling never really goes away, but that when you leave the house now, you get on the bus for a different purpose. Before you had kids, it was all about going out there and trying to win at awards shows and sell as many tickets as possible and trying to have multi-week No. 1 (singles).”
“After you have kids, you still want those things,” continues Rhett. “But at the forefront of your brain is, ‘How can I give my child the best life humanly possible?’ (Aldean) said that’s what helps him get on the bus on the weekends. That’s the best piece of advice I’ve gotten so far.”
Finding the ideal work-life balance is always a challenge, but we have no doubt that Thomas and Lauren will perfect their parenting stride. Soon the family of three will become four, Lauren is due with a second baby girl in August.
