Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their second daughter, who is due within the next week or so, but he remains incredibly proud of the little girl who made him a father earlier this year: Willa Grace.
Willa’s adoption from Uganda was finalized just a few months ago, and Willa is now 20 months old. “We couldn’t have asked for a more amazing child,” Thomas gushes in a statement from his label. “I mean, when we met Willa, she was six months old.
“Even though we weren’t there the whole time because we had to come back and forth from Uganda to America, but just watching her kinda grow up and being kinda like this shy kid and now like never has met a stranger and will literally jump into your arms if you ask her to. Her personality is just explosive.”
Thomas also remains incredible grateful for how his fans have welcomed Willa into his life. “It’s just amazing how supportive people have been,” he continues. “Just on the topic of adoption, I kind of feel like it’s sort of controversial in a strange way, but my fans have been the most loving people ever towards Willa and towards Lauren and towards our family.”
