Why Thomas Rhett and His Wife are the Real-Life 'This Is Us'

Thomas Rhett is basically the dad in This Is Us.

The NBC juggernaut follows the emotional ups and downs of parents Jack and Rebecca Pearson and how the lives of their children Kate, Kevin and Randall, the latter of which happens to have been adopted, intertwine.


“I feel like This Is Us, I cry every episode,” Thomas tells reporters at a recent No. 1 party in Nashville.

Of course, Thomas and wife Lauren Akins are currently in the midst of adopting a baby themselves, while Lauren is concurrently pregnant with the couple’s first biological child.

While TR can’t update fans on the status of the couple’s adoption in Africa (It’s an “emotional roller coaster,” he says.), he can reveal Lauren is 18 weeks pregnant, and doctors expect her to give birth sometime in August.

The “Star of the Show” singer continues his Home Team Tour through November with Kelsea Ballerini, Ryan Hurd and Russell Dickerson.
