Thomas Rhett Reveals Daughter 'Had Never Seen Dogs Before'


Thomas Rhett and family are adjusting to life with a toddler, but their toddler is experiencing a whole other adjustment.

The country star and wife Lauren Akins adopted daughter Willa Gray from an orphanage in Uganda, and after her first few days at her new home in Nashville, Tennessee, the little one is “constantly” seeing “something new,” TR says.

“Willa has never seen dogs before and we have two big ones,” he adds. “They are so sweet, but it’s been hilarious watching her try to pet them.” 


Willa is also getting used to a car set, in which Thomas says the little one had never before sat.

“She’s like, ‘Why are these straps over my shoulders?’” the “Craving You” singer says of Willa’s first time in a car seat. “‘Why am I being locked into this weird contraption?’”
