Thomas Rhett announced that him and his wife, Lauren Akins, are having a baby. The 26-year-old country singer shared the exciting news today (Feb.15) on Instagram.

“We are so happy to announce that we are pregnant…” Rhett captioned the photo, which shows the couple holding gold balloons, spelling out the word “baby.”

But that's not the only big thing happening in the Akins family: In addition to the baby they're expecting, Rhett and Lauren will also be adopting a baby from Africa. As Rhett put it, "Safe to say life is about to get crazy!"
