Temperatures in Nashville are hanging out in the upper 90s as Thomas Rhett’s wife, Lauren, is in the final stretch of her pregnancy. Their daughter is due August 8, and Lauren is doing her best to beat the heat.
As the dad, Thomas can only do so much to help his wife out.
He says, “I just feel bad for her. Like, I know how uncomfortable she is and how ready she is to just have the baby. So there’s nothing much I can do about that except be a support system.”
A big part of Thomas’ support strategy involves keeping Lauren stocked up on her favorite sweet treats.
“Ice cream is her normal life craving, and it’s intensified when she’s pregnant,” Thomas says. “So, we always keep our freezer pretty stocked full of different flavors of ice cream.”
As you can see from these photos, Thomas hasn’t been falling down on the job in the ice cream department.
Of course, Thomas is also helping keep their adopted daughter, Willa, occupied when Lauren needs some rest. That’s made for some absolutely adorable Instagram moments between father and daughter.
On the music front, Thomas releases his brand-new single, “Unforgettable,” this Friday. The song tells the story of a couple’s first date when he knew instantly she was the one he’d marry.
Thomas tells Rare Country, “That song was basically written … basically a guy was just telling this girl, ‘Do you remember? It was in October. You were wearing these shoes. You were wearing these jeans. You were drinking a mango-rita, we were listening to a Coldplay song, and I bet you didn’t know it then, but I knew it that night.'”
That isn’t exactly Thomas and Lauren’s story since they’ve known each other since they were just kids. However, we can tell you Lauren has given “Unforgettable” a big thumbs up.
