Can we take a moment to bow down to Thomas Rhett? There are so many things to love about this guy, and this is just icing on the cake.
Thomas Rhett and the love of his life, Lauren, are adopting a baby, and ALSO having a baby. They were on an African safari in Tanzania when they found out they were pregnant, but they had already started the process of adoption before they knew.
I’m the first to admit that I started off pretty cool on Thomas Rhett. The first few songs he put out didn’t really do anything for me. In fact, I told Thomas this one time, and he called me a jerk. (It was a good-natured jab.) But when he put out Make Me Wanna, I started to turn around, and I’ve absolutely loved everything he’s put out since then.
But this makes his stock go up even more. I have SUCH respect for people who adopt. It’s a huge thing to invite a child into your life when you don’t even have the biological imperative to care for that kid. It shows the true colors of a person to do that. Plus, frankly, we just have too many people on this Earth, y’all. Adopting not only keeps another human from appearing, but also reduces the surplus by one. I think it’s a huge thing, and I want to make sure that Thomas & Lauren get all the credit in the world for this selfless act.
Interesting Side-note: they were on vacation with Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and his wife, and they both found out that Lauren was pregnant before Thomas did!
