Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren, recently adopted Willa Gray from Uganda and the little beauty is already impressing crowds.
Willa Gray isn’t even two years old and she’s already tasting fame. On Saturday night, Rhett brought the tiny tot onstage and introduced her to the Home Team Tour in Mississippi. Rhett was beaming from ear to ear as he carried her onstage in her noise canceling headphones (a gift from Russell Dickerson’s wife, Kailey). He shared a photo of the moment on Instagram calling it, “the coolest thing ever.”
Willa was a little shy in front of the large audience at C Spire Live. She was taking it all in while in her daddy’s arms but she wanted nothing to do with the microphone. Rhett admitted that his daughter is shy but she’s not shy when she’s in Lauren’s arms. She was evening dancing to “Star of the Show” backstage.
Willa Gray may still be getting used to having a famous daddy but she’ll have plenty of time to get used to the limelight. After all, she’s only been home with her parents for a few weeks. Willa also has a little time to get used to the idea of being a big sis. Lauren’s due with another baby girl this August.
