From the outside looking in, the beautiful love story that is Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins looks like a modern day fairy tale. Even their ordinary day-to-day feels a little special because of the way this country music couple holds each other up. So when Thomas and Lauren go out for a night on the town for any reason, it feels like a celebration.
Fortunately, when the couple headed into Nashville for a night with the symphony, there was a little milestone in their relationship that was toast-worthy.
Wait. The symphony? Yes, but it isn’t what you might think!
Lauren shared a sweet photo of the couple on her Instagram page, and in the caption she writes, “Christmas date night at the Nashville Symphony listening to the orchestra play the live music while watching ‘Home Alone’🎄✨ Sooooo magical 😍”
OK, that sounds super cool. But what is even better, even sweeter, is that Lauren adds, “Side note—we got engaged six years ago tonight 😘😘🎄💚❤️, love you TR #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear”
It’s hard to believe this precious young couple has been “official” for half a dozen years, but they’ve been together for a lot longer — all the way back to their school days. Thomas released a special video that documented the couple’s journey from a time when they were just friends in high school to their wedding day on Oct. 12, 2012. And in reality, Thomas has said in early interviews that he first met Lauren in sixth grade.
And while it took a while, and a nudge from Lauren’s father, for the couple to get on the track they were destined for, once they did there was no looking back.
Even after 11 years, we never see the pair as anything other than madly in love with each other.
Now with two little girls, Willa Gray and Ada James, and two fur babies, Cash and Kona, in their home, along with a truckload of grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins, Thomas Rhett and Lauren have their own “happily ever after,” and we just can’t get enough.
After an insanely busy 2017, that included adding both of their precious daughters to the family and a super successful headlining “Home Team Tour,” Thomas is taking a break to really embrace everything that he and Lauren have worked for.
We sure wish them a Merry Christmas!
