The Akins household just grew by one! Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren visited Uganda in 2016 and fell in love with a child they met at an orphanage there. Thomas said of his wife “Lauren had this amazing glow about her and it just felt like she was already our daughter in a weird way,” he added “‘I just blurted out, ‘We should bring her home.’ ”
And after lots of paperwork and legal proceedings they finally have little Willa Gray home. But this great family story does not end there: The Akins household will soon be expending again as Lauren is also expecting a baby girl and is due in August!
In fact, due to her pregnancy Lauren couldn’t make it to Uganda to bring Willa home and so her parents stepped in and brought the little one home to Nashville.
Proud daddy posted the picture above with a sweet note to his wife on mothers day.
This amazing family is growing fast… expect more great family stories from Thomas Rhett and Lauren soon!
