Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins plan to wait until their six-year-old daughter is 10 before they tell her about her adoption.
The 32-year-old singer has admitted the baby is “the best in the world” and said how Willa has “strong questions” about leaving Uganda and wanting to see his friends from the country eo.
He said: “I do not know if you have ever heard of this at all, but it is like, ‘Now, what is the age? What is the correct age?’
“Maybe we should wait until he is 10, you know what I mean? But he always has questions.
“She’s talking to Lauren, like, ‘When can we get to see my friends in Uganda?’
“Eaba [her four-year-old sister] Ada James will say, ‘When can I see our friends in Uganda?’
“And Willa Gray will be like, ‘Well, they’re not your friends, they’re my friends.’ “
Thomas – who also has children Ada, four, Lennon, two, and four-month-old Lillie, and Lauren – have agreed that one of her significant other would be happy to raise their children.
Speaking on the “Making Space” podcast, she also says: “It was all Lauren’s dream, she wanted to have five children.
From the day we got married, she was like, ‘I want to have five.’ And sitting there walking around, ‘Well, you know, that would be nice.’ So I said to Lauren, ‘Let’s take five, but let us breathe for four years.’ “
‘Die a Happy Man’ actress confirmed the birth of her daughter and Lauren Lillie last November.
He wrote on Instagram: “Lillie Carolina Akins born November 15th. 7.5 pounds of pure happiness @laur_akins you are my hero. Watching a baby born miraculously. 4 under 6 here we go! (Sic ) “
Lauren admitted that she and Thomas “could not go over a month” about their arrival.
He wrote: “Our Lady Lillie Carolina Akins was born on November 15 and our family was already very happy for a month with our little happiness.
“If He clothed the lily with beauty and splendor
How much will he clothe you?
If He had taken care of every sparrow
How much do you love it? ”
