Thomas Rhett isn’t just a hit-making country star. He’s also a proud dad. He and his wife Lauren Akins already have three girls- Willa Gray, 6, Ada James, 4, and Lennon Love, who is just 20 months. On Mother’s Day this year, Rhett announced that they were expecting their fourth daughter. He has to be one of the busiest guys in the business. Having four little ones running around the house must keep him and Lauren on their toes.
This fact left some fans wondering if Thomas Rhett and Lauren were planning to continue expanding their family after daughter number four arrives later this month. According to People, Rhett got the question while hosting a Q&A session on his Instagram stories. When asked if the couple planned on having any more kids, the “Country Again” singer simply replied, “Probably! Haha.”
It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Thomas Rhett and his wife are keeping their options open. After all, they always look blissfully happy in photos together. Additionally, Rhett’s social media posts make it obvious that he loves being a father. So, why not add even more joy to their family?
Thomas Rhett Reveals Daughter Number 4 Was an Unplanned Blessing
The fact that Lauren Akin was pregnant with their fourth child took the couple by surprise. Thomas Rhett recently spoke to People about the day they learned that they would be blessed with another bundle of joy.
Thomas Rhett, Lauren, and a few of their friends were on a ski trip in Telluride, Colorado. He explained that they were on a ski lift when Lauren started complaining about nausea. He threw out several reasons why she might be feeling a little under the weather. For one, Lauren apparently had a pretty serious sunburn on her face. So, Rhett said Lauren might have sun poisoning.
However, Lauren knew better. She said it felt “different,” yet all-too-familiar. At that point, Thomas Rhett joked that Lauren might be pregnant again. She told him there was “no way,” that was the case. With a laugh, Rhett recalled telling her, “Well, there’s definitely a way.” With that, they went and got a pregnancy test.
Thomas Rhett said that it didn’t take long to get their answer. “We went and got a pregnancy test and literally within 15 seconds, there were two pink lines on the pregnancy test…It’s just wild.” However, Thomas and Lauren weren’t upset about the unexpected news. He told People, “We always wanted five kids, so we’re just working our way there.”
They’ll have their fourth this month. The real question here is if they’ll stop at five or keep going for more. Only time will tell for the happy couple and their still-growing family.
