Thomas Rhett Akins, Jr., met his wife Lauren Gregory in the first grade. They even attended church camp together when they were 13 years old. The couple dated shortly when they were both 15 years old. Even though the relationship did not work out at that time, the pair vowed to remain "best friends."

As we were saying, if it were not for Lauren's dad, the two could have easily been married to other people. He called up Rhett and said, "If you don't come over here tonight and tell Lauren how you feel about her, then I'm going to tell her how you feel about her," according to Rhett. It was after Lauren ended her relationship at the time that Rhett asked her out, they dated for about six months and got engaged. The pair married in 2012 at the age of 22.

After the couple wed in October 2012, they honeymooned in Oahu, Hawaii. In February 2017, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together, and were planning to adopt from Uganda. Three months later, they brought their first child home from Uganda, naming her Willa Gray Akins. On Rhett's Instagram, he said, "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!"

On August 12, 2017, the couple welcomed their first biological daughter, Ada James Akins. On his Instagram, he joked around, using the hashtag #Outnumbered, probably referring to the fact that there were more females than males in his home now. He captioned his post, saying, "I can't believe that we have two daughters!" Thomas captioned an Instagram post he shared the next day. "My wife @laur_akins labored almost 36 hours. She is by far the strongest human being I have ever met and I have a new found respect for moms around the world."

The couple announced in July 2019 on their Instagram, saying, "We decided we didn’t have enough princess dresses around the house so we’re adding another Akins baby girl to the family early next year," Lauren revealed on Instagram in July 2019. "Despite Thomas Rhett’s initial shock (swipe to see video 😂) we are absolutely over the moon for our baby girl!" Lennon Love was born on February 10 at 8:30AM.
