Being a big sister is a tough job and Thomas Rhett‘s 1-year-old daughter, Lennon Love, is certainly feeling the pressure after welcoming sister Lillie Carolina home last week.
Rhett took to social media on Tuesday to share an adorable snapshot of Lennon and Lillie and by the look on Lennon’s face, she isn’t quite sure what to think of baby Lillie.
“Lennon is taking this really well 😂,” Rhett captioned the photo.

Thomas and his wife, Lauren Akins, welcomed Lillie Carolina into the world on Monday, November 15. The beloved country couple 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!”
Lillie is the couple’s fourth daughter and “littlest joy,” according to Lauren.
After previously naming three daughters, the couple had to dig deep when deciding on a name and ended up drawing inspiration from song lyrics and Bible passages.
“‘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”
Lillie Carolina joins sisters Willa Gray, 6, Ada James, 3, and Lennon Love, 1.
