Country music star Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren have just welcomed home their first baby, Willa Gray Akins, just in time for Mother’s Day! The couple spent many long months attempting to adopt Willa from Uganda and were finally successful on may 12th when she finally got to come home. The couple is soon awaiting the arrival of baby number two.

Rhett posted an adorable, heart melting photo of the mother/daughter duo today in honor of their first Mother’s Day. Rhett gushed about what an incredible mother she already is and how she naturally fell into the roll.

Rhett wrote, “Babe.. not only are you the hottest mom you are the sweetest, funniest most kind hearted human being that I know. I know you didn’t plan on marrying a singer when you were sitting in your 3rd grade class room but I’m so glad you did. I couldn’t imagine my life without you. Seriously you know how lost I get when you are gone for 2 weeks.”
