Kelly Clarkson hears all about the emotional Thomas Rhett adoption story when the country star and his wife, Lauren Akins, appear on her talk show. And the incredible journey brings Kelly to tears!
Thomas Rhett is one of the biggest names in country music. With hit songs like ‘Die A Happy Man' and ‘Life Changes,' Thomas has solidified his place in the country music world.
But it's his love story that is getting all the attention these days. And now, Thomas Rhett and his wife are sharing their adoption story, too.
Divine Prompting Gives Girl A New Home
Thomas and Lauren wed back in 2012.
For years, they dreamed of starting a family, but they never imagined where the Lord would lead them. Lauren was on a trip to Uganda when she met a little baby that stole her heart.
After calling her husband, she recounted the conversation to Kelly Clarkson. "Honey, we've got to find her her forever home, I know that's why I'm here-to get this girl to her home."
But it was Thomas Rhett's response in this adoption story that truly blew the host away. "It was after a concert and I was going to bed, I was like, ‘Well, we’ll bring her home.'"
That's when Kelly started to wipe away the tears as the she exclaimed that she had done her own makeup and it wasn't waterproof. Thomas and Lauren went on to adopt Willa Gray. And, since that time, they've added two additional girls to the family with Ada James and Lennon Love.
There's no doubt that God had a hand in this moment!
