When you’ve been yearning for a family and had difficulty conceiving, the moment your life changes when YOUR baby finally arrives is a powerful one. Thomas Rhett adopted his daughter Willa Gray from Africa this month just in time for Mothers day! While his wife Lauren is currently pregnant with their second child, it’s not stopping her from joining her hubby on tour.
Willa Gray had the shocking experience of learning what her father does for a living over the weekend. While she may not fully realize that her father is country superstar, all the excitement is definitely giving her a taste of the life she should expect!
Rhett was beaming with joy when he brought his daughter out onstage to say hello to the crowd! He later shared a video compilation of footage from a concert in Mississippi. In the clip, Willa Gray is seen backstage with her mother, and in her father’s arms onstage, waving hello to a massive audience.
She was rocking a pair of noise-canceling headphones that were, according to Rhett’s Instagram account, a gift from Kailey Dickerson, the wife of country up-and-comer Russell Dickerson, who is touring with Rhett and is a long time family friend.
He later shared another photo of himself holding Willa Gray onstage where he’s clearly enjoying life as a father! Rhett’s wife Lauren also shared a picture of herself and Willa backstage, noting that “despite her confused look, I think she really loved her first weekend on the road.”
Look At That Smile!
Congratulations on your growing family, Thomas & Lauren!
