Thomas Rhett Reveals the Moment He & Wife Lauren Akins Sought Marriage Counseling

During his appearance, Thomas talked about his new memoir, Live in Love, and admitted there were “parts where I wish I wasn’t made out to look like such a jerk.”

“There were certain parts in our marriage where I was a bit jerky, especially through the adoption — not that any of this was my fault,” he explained.

He revealed that the couple experienced difficulties during the adoption process for their daughter Willa Gray, 4, while he was touring and she was visiting Uganda, pregnant with their now 3-year-old Ada James.

Lauren called me because it was 9 o’clock in the morning in Uganda and…she hears all of her friends in the background. Meanwhile, Lauren is seven months pregnant and throwing up in a bathroom in Uganda. That was when Lauren was like, ‘We are living two completely separate lives right now.’”

“That was a really humbling experience for me, just knowing what she was dealing with in a sense of aloneness while I’m kind of living life as usual. That part was really hard for us, for sure. Kind of getting over that and going through some therapy, especially over that one night,” he explained.

“Coming on the other side of that, I feel like I learned so much from that experience. It made me know that, in a marriage, you do have to figure stuff out. You have to talk about it. You’ve gotta be real about it. You’ve gotta be honest about it…hopefully, there’s somebody else reading that chapter going, ‘Man, I’ve been in that same position. If they can work it out, we can work it out too.’”

The couple recently emotionally spoke out about their adopted Black daughter amid protests against systemic racism and police brutality…

Thomas Rhett & Lauren Akins Emotionally Speak Out About Their Adopted Black Daughter Amid George Floyd Protests

Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins are opening up and standing in solidarity.

“As the father of a black daughter and also two white daughters- I have struggled with what to say today. We have navigated forms of racism directly and while there is mostly overwhelming support and love for our family, sometimes there is just the opposite. Because of that fear, it can be a lot easier to choose silence, but today I’m choosing to speak,” said Thomas.

“I have been nervous to post anything in the past and even now because of how some people believe that I as a white mother am undeserving or incapable of raising a black daughter. I believe that shaming comes from people who choose to see only my white skin and her brown skin and refuse to see our hearts and love for each other. That shaming has created such anxiety in me that I am afraid to share my heart on social media. But as her mother, I want her to be VERY sure that I am HER mother who stands up not only for her, but for every single person who shares her beautiful brown skin,” Lauren wrote.

Kelly Clarkson Tears Up While Thomas Rhett Tells Her the Story of His Daughter's Adoption

It was an emotional interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show when Kelly had country singer Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins open up about adopting their four-year-old daughter Willa Gray.

Kelly asked why the couple decided to adopt before having a biological child and Lauren mentioned how her mom was adopted.

“I just thought it was really cool,” she said. “We’d talked about it off and on, but it wasn’t something that we had sat down and had, like, a full-on adoption conversation.”

Lauren went to Uganda in 2016 with the organization 147 Million Orphans and she connected with a baby girl while there. She called Thomas up on FaceTime and told him that they had to find a home for the girl.

“I was telling him her story and I was like, ‘Babe, we know so many people who are trying to adopt right now, and this little girl needs a forever home,’” she said. “I was, like, so moved. I mean, the second I touched her, it was, like, electric. I was like, ‘Oh my word. This little girl has just taken my heart.’ I was like, ‘Honey, we’ve gotta find her her forever home. Like, I know that’s why I’m here is to get this girl to her home.’”

This is when Kelly started to tear up. She said, “I did my own makeup and this is not waterproof. It’s so beautiful because I know that feeling. As a mama, you touch them and you hug them. It doesn’t matter if it’s yours or not. We’re a blended family. You’re like, this is my purpose. It’s such a powerful thing.”

Thomas ended up telling his wife to bring him the baby.

“I don’t fully remember even saying it,” he said. “It was, like, such a spiritual thing for me that it came out of my body. Then, literally two weeks after, we were having home assessments and talking to adoption agencies.”

The couple recently welcomed their third daughter into the world!
