Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren took to Instagram today to announce that they were going to have a baby.
Not only is Lauren pregnant but couple also announced that they are also in the process of adopting a child from Africa.
In the photo caption on Instagram Lauren wrote, “Our hearts are exploding with happiness for y’all to meet our new baby who we are bringing home from Africa soon, who is also going to have a little brother or sister because, SURPRISE! There’s a sweet baby in my belly too.”
The couple began the adoption process in 2016 and then stopped trying to get pregnant.
“When we began the adoption process, we said, ‘Let’s wait, let’s give this adopted child his or her time with us, and then we’ll continue our family.” Lauren said. While the couple was in Tanzania in December Lauren started feeling sick and thought it was food poisoning. But just in case, she took a pregnancy test which was positive.
“I was in complete and utter shock!” Thomas Rhett said. “No one is ever prepared for something like that. It is almost like we suddenly had twins.”
