Country Singer Thomas Rhett: ‘I Love Being A Dad So Much’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Country singer Thomas Rhett loves being a dad “so much.”

“Came home to this!!” he captioned a recent photo of himself and his daughters celebrating Father’s Day. “I love being a dad so much. Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads getting it done out there.”

Rhett and his wife Lauren share four daughters — Willa Gray, 8, Ada James, 6, Lennon Love, 4, and Lillie Carolina, 2.

While appearing on THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW, the singer called his girls “the light of my world,” adding, “I’m taking a camera everywhere I go — a big camera — trying to just capture all these moments and really just embracing the dad life.”

“I just love getting to spend one-on-one time with each of them, which is something that I didn’t think was really important before,” Rhett told People. “But I think the longer I’ve gone as a dad, it’s like each child really does need that one-on-one time — in the same way that Lauren and I just need time with each other.”

He shared that one of the ways he spends time with his daughters is making music together. 

“They all love music, and they all love to go there separately, and I’ll just get a guitar and they’ll bang on the piano, or I’ll pull up my Pro Tools rig and put some drumbeats on there. And they’ll just sit up here and play,” Rhett said. 

Movieguide® previously reported on the Rhetts’ decision to adopt eldest daughter Willa:

While on Kevin Bacon’s podcast, country singer Thomas Rhett told the story of how he came to adopt his eldest daughter Willa Gray.

“I’ve always thought my wife is the most beautiful person I’ve ever seen in my life, but there was something about this picture that she was like, glowing, man,” Rhett told Bacon, describing a picture his wife sent him from an orphanage in Uganda, holding a baby.


“And so was this baby, who I’d never met before, and I remember FaceTiming [my wife] that night and saying, ‘Who was that baby that you were holding?’ And she said well, ‘This is Blessing, and there are no living parents or living residents, so she has no family,’” Rhett continued.

“She’s been at this children’s home now and she, her name is Willa Gray, but her name was Blessing at the orphanage. And she had been there for like a week. She was 6 weeks old,” he added.

Rhett’s heart was so filled with love for the baby that before he even knew what he was saying, he suggested to his wife that they take her home.

“My wife was just talking to me, like ‘We have to find a home for this child.’ And I’ll never forget it dude. It was 2 o’clock in the morning where I was half asleep, and it just kind of blurted out of my mouth ‘We’re going to bring her home,’” he recalled.
