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.
