By Movieguide® Staff

Country star Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins welcomed their fourth child, daughter Lillie Carolina, on Nov. 15 in Nashville.

The couple, who shares Willa Gray, 6, Ada James, 4, and Lennon Love, 21 months, announced the news via Instagram.

“Lillie Carolina Akins born Nov. 15. 7.5 pounds of pure joy,” Rhett wrote in a recent Instagram post. “Lauren, you are my hero. Watching a child being born is legit a miracle. 4 under 6 here we go!”

Akins shared the news on her Instagram and quoted lyrics from the Maverick City Music and Elevation Worship song, “Jireh.”

“Our little miss Lillie Carolina Akins was born on Nov. 15 and our family couldn’t be more over the moon about our littlest joy,” she said. “‘If He dresses the lilies with beauty and splendor / How much more will He clothe you? If He watched over every sparrow / How much more does He love you?’ lyrics from ‘Jireh’ by @elevationworship and @maverickcitymusic inspired by scriptures in Matthew 6 & Luke 12. Just love hearing her name as the sweetest reminder of how much God cares for us.”

The couple announced the news of their pregnancy on Mother’s Day.

“We are pumped to be having our 4th girl,” Rhett said at the time.

Rhett and Lauren recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary.

“I knew from this one night that we were gonna get married and grow old together,” Rhett wrote on Instagram. “Here we are 9 years into marriage. I’m thankful to God every day that you said yes to marrying me! What a wild ride of just being us two for 5 years, to now having 3 beautiful baby girls, to almost welcoming our 4th baby! What is life?!?!”
