One of our favourite couples in Country Music are adding to their family with not one baby…but 2!!
When they were on a safari together in December, Thomas’s wife Lauren started feeling sick. “I was 100 percent sure I was not pregnant,” she tells PEOPLE. They had actually started their adoption process a few months earlier and decided ‘Let’s wait, let’s give this adopted child his or her time with us and then we’ll continue our family. So I was convinced it was food poisoning.” says Lauren.
They were actually traveling with Tyler Hubbard (from Florida Georgia Line) and his wife Hayley at the time. Thomas was doing a workout when the three of them burst into the gym with the good news! “I was in complete and utter shock! No one is ever prepared for something like that. It is almost like we suddenly had twins.”
Lauren says they’d been trying for a while to get pregnant, with no luck. “We tried to get pregnant for a little bit before. It was a good chunk of time and our family is extremely fertile, so I was expecting it to happen easily. I was like, ‘Maybe this is the Lord’s way of telling me adoption is what he wants me to do.’ And I was okay with that. It’s funny to me how we tried so hard and then we didn’t try at all and it happened! We feel like it’s all part of the plan.”
Since they got the news, Thomas has reached out to his Country Music family for tips on being a Dad. He recently went for dinner with Dierks Bentley.
Here’s what Dierks had to say…”Well, you’re not going to get any sleep and Red Bull is going to be your best friend!’”
