County music star Thomas Rhett and his wife welcomed a baby girl this week in their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee.

“Our early Valentine baby was born yesterday, February 10th and her sisters couldn’t be happier to finally get to kiss her little face,” his wife and high-school sweetheart Lauren Akins posted on social media Tuesday night. “Lennon Love Akins 9lbs 2oz of lovveeee with lots of dark hair and blue eyes…we could not be more in love.”

She is the couple’s third child.

“It was such a joy to watch this little angel be brought into the world. My wife is just incredible through the entire birth,” Rhett posted on Instagram. “Watching our kids meet Lennon for the first time was probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life! Ada James and Willa Gray are going to be the best big sisters on the planet. The Lord is so good and I’m so grateful for my beautiful growing family!! Y’all pray for us as we switch from man on man defense to zone.”

In July the couple revealed they were expecting their third daughter. 

After struggling to get pregnant, the couple adopted their oldest daughter Willa Gray from Uganda in 2017. His wife gave birth to daughter Ada James a few months later.
