Thomas Rhett and His Girls Enjoy First Fourth of July as ‘New All-American Family’
Thomas Rhett had a festive Fourth of July surrounded by family. The "Craving You" singer shared an adorable photo of himself seated beside his wife, Lauren, with their daughter, Willa Gray, in his lap.
Appropriately in red, white and blue, the family is all smiles as they pose for a photo while holding sparklers. "The best," Rhett says, summing up the image. Lauren shared the same one, writing: "Georgia boy, Tennessee girl, Uganda cutie pie = our new all-American family. Thankful for the men & women of our country who give us this freedom and make our sweet family possible."

The brought Willa home to the Unites States from Uganda in May, after nearly a year in the adoption process. She won't be the only child for long, as Lauren is pregnant, expecting the couple’s second daughter in August. It's something Rhett says he isn’t quite prepared for — Willa has spoiled them on the parenting front.
“We don’t have any idea what we’re doing at all,” Rhett admits in an interview with his label. “Willa’s been home for almost a month and I feel like we kind of got spoiled on the front end because Willa sleeps like 12 hours a night, so that’s not gonna happen when the newborn comes.”
Nevertheless, Rhett believes Willa will take on the role of big sister well, even though she’s not aware exactly what that means just yet.
“I don’t think she fully knows what it means that Lauren’s pregnant, or that she’s gonna have a sister,” the singer told Taste of Country at Country Jam 2017, “but I think once our new child is born, I think Willa is gonna really be her rock and her big sister.”
