A picture may be worth a thousand words, but the newest photos that Lauren Akins posted on her Instagram page can pretty much be summed up with just a couple: perfect love.
The expectant mom shared a pair of formal portraits — one of herself in a sweet embrace with husband Thomas Rhett, and the other of the obviously insanely happy couple with their giggly girl Willa Gray. On the first photo, Lauren’s caption reads more like a precious love letter to her groom. She writes, “This pic makes me so happy because we haven’t done personal photos since our wedding almost 5 years ago and I just realllyyyy do like him a lot & we’re not … dressed up on a red carpet with a bunch of fancy clothes and make up — just me and him on the farm in our happy place.”

Best baby daddy a girl could ever dream of 😍 • • • 📸: @juliepaisleyphotography
Lauren does point out that her hair, a beautiful blonde braided halo, was done by her pals at Nashville’s The Dry House (the salon co-owned by Dierks Bentley’s wife, Cassidy). She also requests that the next photo session take place when she isn’t 36 weeks preggers. But she does close her note with the romantic, “I love you honey! Best baby daddy a girl could ever dream of.”
The second photo of the sweet little family shows Thomas and Lauren gazing into each other’s eyes with giant smiles. Between them, holding Mommy and Daddy’s hands, is Willa Gray, smiling just as big as her parents.
“I think I’m a little obsessed with our growing family,” Lauren writes, before crediting photographer Julie Paisley for her incredible eye.
Lauren isn’t the only person obsessed with her little family. We just can’t get enough of the Akins and their inspiring and growing love.
