Country singer Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren Akins, doubled the size of their family this year with two adorable daughters. It all started when they met Willa Gray, a sweet orphan from Uganda. The couple had been praying for a child and crossing paths with Willa Gray was a miracle.
Thomas Rhett and Lauren celebrated a very exciting milestone recently— Willa Gray’s second birthday! This is the couples first birthday spent with her in the United States and in honor of the special occasion proud mom Lauren took to Instagram to write her little girl an incredibly sweet message.
“My goodness Willa Gray, we have never prayed so hard for anything or anyone. Now half way across the world from where we first met you’re turning 2 and you are better than my best dreams. God not only answered our prayers for over a year when you came home, but He WAY exceeded them by giving us you. I love getting to be your mama & watching you shine. happy birthday to my first baby, I love you to the moon and stars my precious little one,” Lauren shared.
The series of pictures Lauren posted are some pre-adoption pictures and showcase the love this mother-daughter duo has for one another.
Celebrating Willa Gray’s birthday was a true festivity as the Akin’s household and they went all out to make their first of many extra special. The party was complete with unicorn decorations and a very happy two year old!
Willa also recently celebrated her first Halloween and the matching costumes she had with Thomas Rhett and younger sister Ada James were the cutest ever! The trio went as a bee keeper and two little bumble bees— they would for sure take home the prize for ‘most adorable!’
Another Willa moment fans just melted at because she was so cute was her first day of preschool! While it was hard for mom and dad to say goodbye to her on the first day she sat next to Thomas Rhett and cheesed really big for the camera!
Another big moment for the Akins family that tugged on everyone’s heart strings was when Willa met Ada for the first time! While Thomas Rhett and Lauren were going through the adoption process they had discovered they would be blessed with another daughter! The family welcomed Ada into the world in August and since the girls have been the cutest pair of sisters Instagram has seen!
Willa Gray has grown a lot since TR and Lauren officially welcomed her to the United States and fans have been lucky enough to see her adorable milestones as they have happened thanks to the cuteness overload her proud parents showcase via Instagram.
