Lillie Carolina into the world on Monday, November 15. Thomas and Lauren introduced her to the world via Instagram two days later with a snapshot from the hospital and revealed that she made her debut weighing in at 7 lbs., 5 oz.
“Lillie Carolina Akins born November 15th. 7.5 pounds of pure joy @laur_akins you are my hero,” the “Slow Down Summer” singer wrote. “Watching a child being born is legit a miracle. 4 under 6 here we go!”
Later, the “Slow Down Summer” singer took to Instagram to share a hilarious photo of their 1-year-old daughter, Lennon, holding little Lillie.
“Lennon is taking this really well ,” the four-time GRAMMY captioned the photo.

After wrapping his Center Point Road Tour last month, the country superstar will be able to enjoy some much-needed family time over the holidays.
Come next year, however, things will certainly pick up speed as Rhett previously teased a 2022 tour that will be “litttt.” He also shared plans to release a new album titled Where We Started and Country Again: Side B later in 2022.
