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!

Willa Gray has grown so much since Thomas and Lauren officially welcomed her into their family! Fans have been lucky to see her adorable milestones as they happen thanks to the cuteness overload her proud parents showcase via Instagram.
“My goodness gracious Willa Gray, I’m so thankful you made me a mommy. Getting to be your mommy is truly the best gift. Your bright, sweet, kind, brilliant, goofy and loving spirit make me want to be a better mama and person every single day. The way you love your little sister is one of the most beautiful things I will ever get to witness this side of heaven, I know it! 💕 I love you to the moon and back Willa Gray girl,” Lauren shared in honor of Willa’s 4th birthday last November.
