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.
Babe.. not only are you the hottest mom you are the sweetest, funniest most kind hearted human being that I know. I know you didn't plan on marrying a singer when you were sitting in your 3rd grade class room but I'm so glad you did. I couldn't imagine my life without you. Seriously you know how lost I get when you are gone for 2 weeks😂 I love you so much and happy 1st Mother's Day. You already are a rock star at being a mom. You + me+ Willa
