Country star, Thomas Rhett, and his wife, Lauren Akins, met when they were in kindergarten. Their romance has been sweet, including the celebration of their 4th wedding anniversary in Africa on a Safari. Magical, indeed.
But what made it more magical was when Thomas suggested to Lauren she should take a pregnancy test. Thinking it was futile—after years of infertility—she did so anyway. And sure enough, the test was positive! Exciting news. Especially as they are also in the process of adopting their first child. Hoping the adoption is finalized long before the August birth, they will raise their children as almost-twins.
Rhett and Akins have been long-time supporters of 147 Million Orphans, the organization for which Rhett raised more than $250,000 dollars last year. Regarding the adoption, as well as the surprise pregnancy, Lauren said, “we feel like it’s all part of the plan.”
