Thomas Rhett and Wife Welcome Adopted Daughter, Willa Gray
She’s here! Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins adopted daughter is home! The couple shared the exciting news with a photo and caption on Instagram.
“Everyone meet Willa Gray Akins! I can’t believe our daughter is finally home We have been in this adoption process for what seems like forever and are just so filled with joy that we are all finally home together! Thank you to everyone who prayed every single day for this sweet girl,” wrote Thomas. “The Lord blessed us with the most amazing little girl we could have ever dreamed of and we can’t wait to watch her grow up!”
Lauren also shared her excitement with several photos, adding that it was due to her mom and dad that the little girl was able to fly from Uganda back to Nashville, since Lauren is now too pregnant to fly.
