Thomas Rhett’s youngest daughter, Lillie Carolina, is officially one. The country star, his wife Lauren Akins and their three daughters, Willa Gray, Ada James, and Lennon Love, all celebrated Lillie’s birthday together.
Rhett took to social media to share a heartfelt message to his little girl on her special day.
“Lillie bug.. how are you one already? It seems like yesterday. For real. I love you so much. Every time i look at you you are smiling! Don’t ever lose that! Happy birthday to you little baby🙌” he wrote.
Lauren also posted a photo of the dad surrounded by all his daughters in their hot tub. Rhett was holding up Lillie while Lennon hung onto his back. Willa smiled from ear to ear as she stood tightly next to her dad and Ada posed with two peace signs.
Her caption read, “family hot tub party for Lillie’s birthday 🎈🥰💕.”
The couple welcomed their fourth daughter into the world on Monday, November 15. She made her debut weighing in at 7 lbs., 5 oz.
On 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.
She went on to explain 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”
When the dad of four isn’t home celebrating milestones with his family, he’s on the road or in the studio working on his successful music career. Rhett recently wrapped up his Bring The Bar To You Tour, after visiting dozens of cities throughout the summer with Parker McCollum and rising artist Conner Smith.
Thomas Rhett is currently enjoying some downtime for the holidays, but he’ll pick things back up again in the new year for the Canadian leg of his Bring The Bar To You Tour. He’ll be joined on the road in February with Jordan Davis and Kameron Marlowe.
The “Look What God Gave Her” singer also recently announced his next headlining Home Team Tour 23. He will be making stops in 40 cities and 27 states next summer with special guests Cole Swindell and Nate Smith.
The Home Team Tour will kick off May 4 in Des Moines, IA at Wells Fargo Arena with special guests Swindell and Smith, and end at Thomas Rhett’s home team’s Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
