Thomas Rhett and his wife recently announced that they will be rapidly expanding their family….soon. Not only is Lauren is expecting the couple’s first child in August, but they are also in the process of adopting a child from Africa!
“The process of adopting someone from a different country is really, really strenuous,” Thomas reveals in a statement from his label. “You find out a lot about yourself, you know, when you’re over there, and you and your wife are staying in a hotel room for a month and a half, and you wake up and you think you’re going to get some news, and you don’t get it, or you don’t think you’re going to get some news, and you do get it, and really, the best way I can describe the adoption process is an emotional roller coaster.

“But in the end, all of it is for a good thing, and you just have to realize that you’re adopting a human being, and you know that all those people that are going to let her into your care, they want to know that you really are a standup person, and that you can support this child.
“And so, I understand how tough they make it for you, to see how bad you really want it, but it is very hard. But we’re finally over that hump and cannot wait to get our child home.”
