Thomas RhettSometimes, the words aren’t right.

This episode airs on April 4. Hoda Kotb‘s podcast, Hoda Kotb: Making Space, the country star admitted he has been fielding some “really intense questions” lately from his 6-year-old-daughter Willa Gray—who he and his wife Lauren Akins adopted from Uganda in 2017.

“She asks questions all the time,” Thomas, 32, told the Today co-anchor. Lauren says that she talks to Lauren and asks her when they can go visit my Ugandan friends.

While Willa Gray’s curiosity may be growing, Thomas admitted he’s not ready to have a deep conservation with her about adoption just yet.

“Well, which age is right?” you ask. He said, “The world moves so quickly that it’s almost impossible to have a conversation like this with a 6 year-old.” Maybe I am old-school like that, but I think we should wait till she is 10.

The “Unforgettable” singer admitted that he and his wife—who are also parents to biological daughters Ada James, 4, Lennon Love, 2 and 4-month-old Lillie Carolina—often struggle to find a balance between telling the truth and preserving their children’s innocence.
