“SURPRISE,” Lauren captioned an Instagram post that featured the happy parents holding her pregnant belly on May 9. “He couldn’t wait any more, so @thomasrhettakins shared our newest little secret in Ft. Worth at @billybobstexas just in time to celebrate Mother’s Day. Akins Family expands in November 2021, with our FOURTH child girl.” 

Thomas also delighted in the announcement, sharing his own sweet shoutout on Instagram that night. He wrote, “Well…we are pregnant again.” He said, “Tonight, as I stood on Fort Worth’s stage to perform ‘to the men that date my daughters’, my wife spoke to me through my (ear monitors). She told me, “You can tell them, if you wish”. It is exciting to have our fourth daughter.
