Thomas Rhett Welcomes Second Child

Thomas Rhett and Wife Lauren Welcome Their Second Child

Country singer Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren Akins, announced the birth of their second daughter, Ada James Akins, with a sweet photo on Instagram on Sunday. In a heartfelt caption, the "Craving You" crooner revealed that baby Ada was born on Saturday night after 36 hours of labor, writing: "I can't believe that we have two daughters!! My wife @laur_akins labored almost 36 hours 😳 She is by far the strongest human being I have ever met and I have a new found respect for moms around the world." He added, "We are so excited that Willa Gray has a baby sister! Thank you Lord and everyone for the prayers."

Ada's birth comes just three months after the couple adopted 1-year-old daughter Willa Gray — whom they met while volunteering with 147 Million Orphans in 2016 — from Uganda in May. The couple had been unsuccessful in their attempts to conceive a child and started to consider adoption. During the adoption process, Lauren found out she was pregnant. Talk about a double blessing! Congrats to Thomas and Lauren on their growing family.
