Thomas Rhett Reveals Wife Lauren Akins Wants Five Kids: ‘We’re Having a Blast Being Parents’

Thomas Rhett can describe parenthood in just one word: chaotic. Yet, the country star couldn’t help but gush over his two daughters, Willa Gray and Ada James, with wife Lauren Akins, to Us Weekly on the Grammy red carpet on Sunday, January 28. Watch the video above!

The 27-year-old Grammy nominee and Akins adopted Willa Gray from Uganda in May 2017, then welcomed Ava just three months later. But it appears, for Rhett, time is flying by.

“They grow so fast. I know that is so cliché to hear, but my littlest is 6 months now, and our other one is 2 years,” Rhett told Us at the Grammy Awards, which were held at Madison Square Garden in New York City. “So, it’s fun to watch them grow and form into their personalities.”

While Ava has “just started rolling over,” it appears that Willa Gray is beginning to teach her country singer dad a thing or two.

“She blows my mind every day, she’s literally the smartest,” Rhett revealed to Us. “I don’t know many 2 year olds, but I feel like she’s extremely smart and she just continues to blow my mind every day. So, we’re having a blast being parents.”

In January, Akins, 28, told Us Weekly that while it may be “hard” having two little ones so close in age, she definitely wants more kids. In fact, she wants a “full house,” and it appears she may get her wish.

“In a perfect world, she would want five [kids],” the singer explained to Us at the Grammys. “I would be good with three, so we’ll probably have five.”
