Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins announced the other week (July 23) that their family is expanding once again. The couple revealed they will be having another baby girl who will join their other two daughters, Willa Gray and Ada James.
Rhett took to Instagram to announce the news himself by sharing a photo of the whole family with his daughters touching their mom's growing belly. "Excited to share that I will now be paying for 3 weddings," he captioned the photo. "I feel so blessed to say that our third child i son the way and it's a girl!!"
Lauren also shared the same photo writing, "We decided we didn't have enough princess dresses around the house so we're adding another Akins baby girl to the family early next year."
More recently, today (August 3) Lauren shared an adorable photo to Instagram of her two girls, Willa and Ada. Based on the post and the caption it sounds like the family, especially Lauren, needed to get out of the house for a bit to refresh. "My little sunshines on our 'adventure walk' around the neighborhood (a game I made up on the fly because we desperately needed to get out of the house before we all lost it even though it was almost a million degrees yesterday)," she wrote.
It also sounds like the mama has been dealing with an extreme case of morning sickness. "SO READY to be fun mommy again when all this more-like-all-day-not-just-morning-sickness goes away," she adds. Lauren also includes a few hilarious hashtags that sum up pregnant mom life with toddlers. She mentioned that her kids, dogs, and especially her husband deserve gold medals for living with her during this time. The hashtags include, "#pregnantlivingwithtoddlerslife #mykidsdeserveamedalforlivingwithme #andmaybemydogs #DEFINITELYmyhusband."
Hang in there Lauren. You're a champ!

We decided we didn’t have enough princess dresses around the house so we’re adding another Akins baby girl to the family early next year 💕🎀😭💗💗💗 despite Thomas Rhett’s initial shock (swipe to see video 😂) we are absolutely over the moon for our baby girl! Our girls cannot wait to meet their little sister 💕💕 Willa Gray prays for her every night (heart in a puddle every time😭😭) & she and Ada James love to touch my belly and talk to her😭😭💗💗💗-especially bc I’ve been showing since I was SEVEN weeks (🤪). So it feels like we have been hiding this secret for an ETERNITY. And I’d like to apologize to everyone I’ve canceled on, said no to or just been MIA, but for a second there I wasn’t sure if I was pregnant or just puked for a living🤢. But she’s soooo worth it💕💗💕💗💕 We are SO excited! & if you need TR you can find him in the camping section at REI buying dude things.......jk, he’s excited too 🥰
