Thomas Rhett Heads Home, Awaits Arrival of His New Baby Girl
Thomas Rhett is about to be a dad (again!), and he has cleared his schedule and headed home to make sure he doesn't miss one second.
The country singer posted to Instagram on Sunday night (July 31) after his show, sharing a picture looking both surprised and somewhat comically frazzled.
"Last show tonight in Nevada then back home to welcome our new daughter into the world, then put out a record," he writes to accompany the pic. "This is the face I will be making for the next 2 months can't wait to see you @laur_akins."
Rhett and his wife Lauren are becoming parents for the second time in just a few months. They welcomed their adopted daughter, Willa Gray, in May after a year-long intense adoption process, and they are expecting a biological daughter on Aug. 8. Rhett has also just announced a new album, Life Changes, that is slated to drop on Sept. 8, and he just released the second single from the project, "Unforgettable." The first single from Life Changes, a duet with Maren Morris titled "Craving You," has already reached No. 1.
Rhett turned to Instagram Stories when he got home to share a picture of Lauren in their kitchen looking extremely happy and content, saying, "This beautiful woman right here with these beautiful pigtails is 39 weeks pregnant. It's gonna happen real soon — maybe even today, who knows."
He also shared a sweet video of himself spending time outside with Willa. Rhett admits that although he's always wanted to be a father, he's still concerned with how he's going to manage his rapidly expanding family and his explosive career.
"One thing I’m terrified about is, I’m already so busy … how in the world am I gonna balance the career and kids?" he told Taste of Country right before the 2017 ACM Awards. "And I think the answer is, it’s impossible. So, lots of Red Bull. Dierks [Bentley] said lots of Red Bull.”
