Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins' oldest daughter, Willa Gray Akins, is a beautiful little girl with a lot of personality! Get to know her here!

Country music star Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren Akins, doubled the size of their family in 2017 by adding two adorable daughters to their household. It all started when Lauren met and fell in love with Willa Gray, a sweet orphan from Uganda, while doing humanitarian work. The couple had been hoping for a child and went through the international adoption process to bring her home to Tennessee.

While working to adopt Willa, the couple found out they were expecting and welcomed Ada James in August 2017. With Willa coming home in May and Ada making her debut a few months later, the couple experienced a lot of change in a very short time!

Believe it or not, Willa Gray Akins turned 5-years-old in November! She also became a big sister again when Lennon Love arrived in 2020!

“WG you continue to amaze me with your heart, your kindness, your selflessness, and your hilariousness. You make me such a better human being, and I’m inspired by you every single day. You may be 5 but you already act like your 15. You are the MOST amazing big sister that AJ and Lennon could ask for. I can’t wait to watch you grow and be there with you every step of the way. To my beautiful baby girl, happy birthday sweet pea!,” Thomas shared via Instagram.
