Congratulations are in order for Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins, who welcomed their daughter Ada James Akins on Saturday night. "Yes, I'm bouncing on a birth ball trying to coax my baby out", she said on her Instagram story. Thank y'all for your prayers-she is a miracle and God is so good.
The "Crash and Burn" singer added that he has a "newfound respect for moms" following his wife's long labor of 36 hours. "Thomas Rhett and I are so I love with her".
Thomas Rhett's caption read, "We're so happy to announce that we are pregnant & in the process of adopting a child from Africa!" "Sweet Ada James Akins came into the world at 10:28 last night after nearly 36 hours of labor (only Jesus got me through that-& she is sooo worth it)".
Akins shared the same photo on Instagram, writing: "Our baby girl is here sweet Ada James Akins came into the world at 10:28 last night after nearly 36 hours of labor (only Jesus got me through that-& she is sooo worth it). We are so excited that Willa Gray has a baby sister!" We are all doing well now, just resting.
Lauren's caption read: "OH BABY! actually... There's a sweet baby in my belly, too", Atkins said in an Instagram post at the time. "I can't believe our daughter is finally home", he captioned the photo, "Thank you to everyone who prayed every single day for this sweet girl".
"Our hearts are exploding with happiness for y'all to meet our new baby who we are bringing home from Africa soon who is also going to have a little brother or sister because, SURPRISE!"
Thomas Rhett and Lauren have known each other since the first grade and were married on October 12, 2012.
"Rhett added the "#outnumbered" hashtag, referencing the couple's recently adopted daughter, 1-year-old Willa Gray. The duo would later rekindle a relationship as adults in 2011.
"I wish I got a break, but I doubt it's gonna happen", he told Schillaci. We kissed, and that was it.
