The beloved couple welcomed Lillie Carolina Akins on Monday, November 15. She made her debut weighing in at 7 lbs., 5 oz.
Late Wednesday evening (Nov. 17), Rhett took to Instagram to introduce their newest bundle of joy.
“Lillie Carolina Akins 😍 born November 15th. 7.5 pounds of pure joy🙌 @laur_akins you are my hero,” he wrote. “Watching a child being born is legit a miracle. 4 under 6 here we go!”
Lauren also shared the exciting news, alongside a sweet snapshot of herself kissing the newborn baby.
“Our little miss Lillie Carolina Akins 💕 was born on November 15th and our family couldn’t be more over the moon about our littlest joy 🤍,” Lauren shared.
Rhett’s wife went on to detail how their newborn’s name was inspired by song lyrics and passages from the Bible.
“‘If He dresses the lilies with beauty and splendor / How much more will He clothe you? / If He watched over every sparrow / How much more does He love you?’ lyrics from “Jireh” by @elevationworship and @maverickcitymusic inspired by scriptures in Matthew 6 & Luke 12. Just love hearing her name as the sweetest reminder of how much God cares for us 🤍”
The couple first announced their pregnancy on May 9 during Rhett’s Billy Bob’s concert in Texas.
“Well… we are pregnant again! Tonight when I was on stage in Fort Worth about to play “to the guys that date my girls” my wife talked to me in my (ear monitors) and said “you can tell them if you want” so anyways, now you know,” Rhett said at the time. “We are pumped to be having our 4th girl feel free to buy all the merch you want, knowing that all the proceeds are going straight to all these weddings I’ll be paying for one day! Love you so much @laur_akins we always wanted a big thanksgiving table”

Rhett previously opened up the task of naming their fourth baby and admitted it’s gotten more difficult each time.
“This has been hard, just because you put so much thought in the first one, and second one and the third, and you’re like, ‘Well we have to spend a lot of time on this one as well.’ And so we’ve gone back and forth and thinking about state names, thinking about flower names, thinking about places that we love, could that resonate into a name? So we’ve landed on a couple,” he shared.
