Thomas Rhett’s middle daughter, Ada James, and Jason Aldean’s only son, Memphis, are the latest children to take part in the viral “Toddler Challenge.”

The new viral trend has taken social media by storm and tests the will power of tiny humans by tempting them with delicious treats. The challenge finds parents offering their toddlers a sweet snack, then leaving the room and telling them that they aren’t allowed to eat any until they return.

Several celebrities have taken part in the challenge, including Kylie Jenner, Gabrielle Union and most recently, Hayley Hubbard, wife of Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard.

Thomas Rhett’s wife, Lauren Akins, put their 2-year-old to the test, tempting her with a bowl of colorful jelly beans. As Ada James sits down at a table with the jelly beans right in front of her, Lauren asks her to please not touch any until she returns from the restroom.

“Okay, so very patient,” Ada James says adorably.

When her mom walks away Ada James shows off her excitement over the jelly beans as she patiently awaits her return. Click below to watch the cute clip.

Brittany Aldean also put Memphis to the test, enticing him with a delicious looking chocolate donut. “Oh my,” he says as she places the donut in front of him. As Brittany walks away, Memphis states down the donut, but somehow, resists the temptation.

Watch the charming clip of Memphis below.
