In a matter of three months, Thomas Rhett went from having no children to having two girls under the age of two...and he and his wife, Lauren, wouldn't have it any other way.

They opened up to People Magazine about their budding family saying that "we're tired, but we're happy!"

The new parents say that Willa Gray, whom they adopted from Uganda in May, has adjusted extremely well into her new role as big sister, but the hardest part has been sharing mommy time. With Ada James, born on August 12, being not even a month old yet, she is constantly attached to Lauren either sleeping or nursing. 

"Willa Gray is constantly saying, ‘Hold you? Hold you?’ and she wants me to pick her up. That has been the hardest part for her,” Lauren said.

So this is about 17 hrs post delivery & after I'd slept for the first time in about 58 hours so I'm still a bit zonked in the video, but this is when Willa Gray met Ada for the first time 💗💗I know everyone is wondering about WG & AJ and how they're doing together 😘 honestly it's taken WG a little bit of adjusting and she's been staying with family and friends off & on especially when Thomas Rhett leaves because I think it's impossible for me to recover, take care of our 2 pups and a newborn and a 21 month old all at the same time 😂 soooo Willa Gray hasn't been around a ton the last week but don't worry! There will be LOTS of sister time soon. And she LOVES Ada now. We're just working on being "gentle" right now haha She's home today and so is daddy so all is right in our world at least for a little bit :) p.s. The fact that WG was showing AJ her bug bite meant she wanted to be friends with her right off the bat so we knew that was a good sign 😂 (sorry for the novel)

Thomas and Lauren are taking things one step at a time and credit their families to being the best "on the planet" with helping out with their newest additions. 

Thomas Rhett will be performing at Fall Fest on Saturday, October 7 at Jiffy Lube Live.
