Thomas Rhett Will Welcome Two Kids This Year
Thomas Rhett has a couple of new projects coming — neither of them musical. The singer and his wife, Lauren Akins, will be welcoming not one but two children this year. The couple announced that Akins is pregnant in an Instagram post on Wednesday, holding gold mylar balloons that spell out B-A-B-Y and writing, “We are so happy to announce that we are pregnant and we are in the process of adopting a child from Africa! Safe to say life is about to get crazy.”
The couple did not reveal Akins due date or the arrival date for the adopted child, so more deets will likely follow. Rhett, meanwhile, returns to the road February 23 in Saginaw, Mich., and has North American shows booked through the summer, with U.K. dates in November.
