They say that country artists always know the best way to put thoughts into words, but so does a mother. Put Thomas Rhett together with his wife, Lauren, on the day of their oldest child's birthday and you got WATER WORKS. Willa Gray was adopted over a year ago from Uganda and has been the light of their world ever since... but there was definitely a kink thrown in the plan of adopting when Lauren found out (on one of the trip to Uganda to see Willa Gray) that she was pregnant with their first biological child. A few months after bringing Willa Gray home, they had their youngest daughter, Ada James.

Thursday, November 1st, Willa Gray turned 3 and you can just tell by the social media posts from their parents AND extended family, that she is just the most loved little girl. Thomas Rhett posted “Happy birthday sweet baby girl! How in the world are you 3 already?!?! I need to pause life cause it’s just moving too fast. I love you more than anything in the world🙌🏼,” while Lauren posted “My sweet, smart, soooo goofy beautiful baby girl who made me a mama💕💕 Happy 3rd birthday cutie pie!!!!! Life is so fun with you and you are the BEST big sister to Ada James😩😘 Your sweet little spirit makes the world around you a better place💗 I am so proud of who you are Willa Gray girl😘🎉🎂🎈💜🦄🌈 Love you to the moon and back always 🌙✨.” Then Willa Gray’s aunt Macy, who is also the families nanny, posted “This sweet, spunky, full of life, cutie girl turned 3 today🎂 she teaches me something new everyday, and I cannot imagine this life without her in it! I love you more than you know💗.” See all the posts below.
