Oh yeah, we admit it. We’ve been mildly obsessed with Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins. From their courtship, to their marriage, to news of adoption while simultaneously announcing their pregnancy, we’ve relished it all. They’ve remained generous about sharing images of their baby girls on social media, but they’ve also kept it real.

And it is REALLY real for them.

With two babies under two—Willa Gray is almost two and Ada James is not quite two months—plus daddy maintaining a hectic tour schedule and Lauren still active with the charity 147 Million Orphans, we wonder when this super couple sleeps.


Turns out, they sleep when they go to mamaw and papaw’s house.

Lauren shared a photo on her Instagram page, and in it, Thomas Rhett has nodded off on the couch, but so has she, laying across his lap. Her hilarious caption reads: “Off day plans: Go to Mamaw and Papaw’s. Hand kids off to Mamaw and Papaw. THIS. 🙌🏼 #parenting

No glitz, no glam, no hair and makeup. Just honest and authentic, and all the reasons we love them.

But really, how much trouble could these two precious little angels be? Dang, youthful good looks must run in T-Rhett’s family. That’s his mom, not his sister!

About 2 years ago I was teaching Kindergarten full time, I had a busy 10 year old and I was having trouble having the energy to go workout after work. Working out has always been a part of my life and was just too tired to do it. I was taking a drink that had caffeine in it to get me through the workout, then laying awake at night. Thats when a good friend of mine told me I should try Plexus . I started on the Triplex. I started sleeping better within 3 weeks, then I started having more energy during the day, after 6 weeks on Plexus my anxiety started going away and my joints stopped hurting. I even saw a difference in my skin! I also noticed I didn't crave sugar! After about 3 months on the products I started talking about how good I felt and other people started trying it with me. I never planned on selling Plexus, but it was so easy I decided why not. I have been able to go part time with my teaching job because of Plexus. I love teaching, but my family has grown and I am in a different phase of life. Now I have 2 grandchildren and I want the flexibility to be very involved with them. Plexus has allowed me to replace my teaching salary plus more! The opportunity with this business is truly amazing! I have grown personally and will continue to do so! These products sell themselves because they address what is wrong in your gut and make it healthy. A healthy gut is a beautiful thing!! I share Plexus because I truly care about people and I want everyone to feel as good as I do. I also sell Plexus because I wanted the freedom to spend time with my family and be involved with these munchkins! #blessed

Thomas Rhett has dates on his “Home Team Tour” schedule through Nov. 15. Then we suspect that, much like the story “A Visit From Saint Nick,” he’ll settle in for a long winter’s nap.
