What Terrifies Thomas Rhett the Most

Fast Forwarding to His Baby Girl’s Teen Years

It sounds like Thomas Rhett is totally OK with having a baby girl. But 13 years from now? That’s what scares him the most.

“(I’m) terrified about having a girl,” he told People about the daughter he and his wife Lauren are expecting.

“When she turns 13, 14, 15 and starts dating, that terrifies me pretty hard, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. Three days ago was the first kick. It was pretty surreal to me. That made it all real,” he said.

And he’s excited to see what his daughter is interested in, he said, whether it’s gymnastics or music or anything else.

One thing he is absolutely confident about is that he is going to raise cheerful givers.

“I’m looking forward to at a very young age introducing my kids to our (charitable) lifestyle. When they’re old enough to realize what’s happening, to bring them over to Africa or to be able to bring them to Haiti or Mexico to the City of Children and get to see how the rest of the world lives.

“We are very fortunate, but there are a lot of people that aren’t,” he said.
