Thomas Rhett & Wife Lauren Akins Adopt Daughter Willa Gray: See The Cute Pic

Just in time for Mother's Day, country singer Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins posted pictures of their adopted daughter Willa Gray Akins on social media on Friday.

The couple, whose last name is Akins, announced earlier this year they were adopting a child from Africa and that Lauren was also pregnant. Lauren Akins posted on Instagram that they met her in Uganda over a year ago and she arrived home on Thursday. This is the first child for the couple, who have volunteered on mission trips with the nonprofit 147 Million Orphans.

Married in 2012, the couple appears in the music video for his No. 1 country hit, "Die A Happy Man," which earned him a Grammy nomination this year.

Everyone meet Willa Gray Akins! I can't believe our daughter is finally home???????? We have been in this adoption process for what seems like forever and are just so filled with joy that we are all finally home together! Thank you to everyone who prayed every single day for this sweet girl. The Lord blessed us with the most amazing little girl we could have ever dreamed of and we can't wait to watch her grow up! #daddyforreal @laur_akins
