BABY NEWS: Thomas Rhett’s Third Daughter Is on the Way

Look What God Gave Him, Again

Another day, another daughter.

(And another wedding. More on that in a minute.)

At around noon on Tuesday (July 23), Thomas Rhett shared the big little news on Instagram. The picture he posted features his wife Lauren Akins in a bikini with a very slight baby bump, making me estimate that the baby girl’s due date will be right around Christmas.

“Excited to share that I will now be paying for 3 weddings,” he wrote with a crying/laughing emoji. “I feel so blessed to say that our third child is on the way and it’s a girl!! I love you so much @laur_akins. WG and AJ, y’all are gonna be the best big sisters! Bring on the crazy.”

Thomas Rhett and Akins already have two little girls, Willa Gray, 3, and Ada James, who is almost 2 years old.

Akins shared the news on her own Instagram page as well, with a whole gallery of pictures from the family photo shoot. And there is even a video of their girly gender reveal. “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,” she wrote. She even admitted that the morning sickness this time around was kind of extra. “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,” she said. “But she’s soooo worth it.”

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
