Thomas Rhett Has Found ‘the Calm in the Crazy’ of Being a Dad to Young Kids
"Even though our lives are insanely chaotic and we keep growing our family, we really do feel right now that we're at a more peaceful place than we've ever been," Rhett explained to The Boot and other outlets during an October press event. "Before I had kids, I never really thought I'd be as at peace with two and one on the way."
That isn't to say there haven't been challenges. "Lauren, for some reason, she's 23 weeks pregnant and still kinda sick," Rhett relates, adding that the family has also undergone a change in living situation to accommodate the new baby: "We're moving, because we've completely outgrown our house.
"Now we have somewhere for everybody to sleep which is nice," he continues. "We're just pumped. And Willa Gray and Ada are always touching [Lauren's] stomach."
The parents-to-be first announced the new addition to their family back in July, along with video footage of their gender reveal and Rhett's shock at realizing he was going to have a third daughter. "Excited to share that I will now be paying for three weddings 😂" Rhett wrote on Instagram at the time.
Before their official reveal, the couple had been convinced that they were going to have a baby boy; however, after learning the news, both were overjoyed by the prospect of welcoming a third daughter. Rhett and his wife still haven't decided on a name for the new baby, although Rhett says they've got some ideas.
"We haven't picked a name yet, but we've got a few floating around," he admits. "We're trying to figure it out."
According to Rhett, Lauren is due on Feb. 3, 2020.
