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!
“My sweet, smart, soooo goofy beautiful baby girl who made me a mama💕💕 Happy 3rd birthday cutie pie!!!!! Life is so fun with you and you are the BEST big sister to Ada James😩😘 Your sweet little spirit makes the world around you a better place💗 I am so proud of who you are Willa Gray girl😘🎉🎂🎈💜🦄🌈 Love you to the moon and back always 🌙✨,” Lauren shared in celebration of Willa Gray’s birthday last fall.
