Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren have three daughters under the age of five at home and while one would assume their life is pure chaos, Rhett says it’s really not what you’d expect.

When Lennon Love joined their family earlier this year, the superstar was prepared for things to be quite a bit more difficult, but it turns out, he and Lauren were well prepared for their newest addition.

“I thought that adding three to the mix would be a lot harder but it really just tacks on a little bit to the chaos,” the “Be a Light” singer shares. “I think when you have more than two kids, you could have five, six, seven. I mean, it does get harder but I think that as they kind of become into that one and a half year old to two-year range it starts to get little bit easier. I would say the infant stage is definitely the hardest.  But I think once Lennon starts to get six months to a year, I think it’s gonna be just fine.”

Thomas and Lauren have recently been enjoying some kid-free time at the beach in Florida but it seems as if they can’t keep their adorable kiddos off their minds.

“As a parent you talk about alone time a bunch. Then you get it. 12 minutes in you say, “wow I miss my kids,’” Rhett wrote in a recent Instagram post.

The couple has never been shy about their desire to have a large family. Just last summer, he shared that he hopes to have a ‘gigantic’ family one day.

“If we stopped having kids now, I know I’d wake up at 45 and go, ‘We should have had five more,’” he explained. “Because I really do want to be able to sit at a Thanksgiving or Christmas table with the most gigantic family on the planet.”

Thomas and Lauren are already parents to Willa Gray, 4, and Ada James, 2, and Lennon Love, 5 months.
