Thomas Rhett and Wife Reveal Baby’s Gender
PINK OR BLUE?!
Thomas Rhett and his wife of more than four years, Lauren Akins, took to social media to reveal that they are expecting a baby girl. The couple celebrated the news with friends and family on Saturday (Feb. 18) by hosting a gender reveal party.
Before the big soiree, Lauren shared a photo of a pink and blue cake decorated with lyrics from the iconic lullaby “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.” She completed the lyric in her caption writing, “how we wonder what you are.”
“It’s PINK,” Lauren exclaims as Thomas cuts a slice of cake in the adorable clip. The Country star then raises his hand in the air and shouts “We’re having a girl!”
The news of the baby’s gender comes just days after the couple revealed that they are pregnant and adopting a child a child from Africa.
“We are so happy to announce that we are pregnant and we are in the process of adopting a child from Africa! Safe to say life is about to get crazy,” Rhett shared in a post to fans on Wednesday.
In a recent interview with People, Thomas and Lauren shared that they had been trying to conceive for quite some time.
“We tried to get pregnant for a little bit before,” Akins told the publication. “It was a good chunk of time and our family is extremely fertile, so I was expecting it to happen easily. I was like, ‘Maybe this is the Lord’s way of telling me adoption is what he wants me to do.’ And I was okay with that.”
Now, the pair has two children on the way and they couldn’t be more excited.
“I think the way it all worked out, both of us have such a peace about this whole process, that it’s so right. We could not be happier. We feel like 2017 is going to be our big year,” Akins shared.
