Thomas Rhett has shared what it was like to learn he was going to be a dad twice over.
In February he and wife Lauren revealed on Instagram that she was expecting, which was a bit unexpected as they were literally in the middle of adopting a child from Africa.
We are so happy to announce that we are pregnant and we are in the process of adopting a child from Africa! Safe to say life is about to get crazy! ?

The plan had been to adopt first, and focus on expanding the family later. "When we began the adoption process, we said, 'Let's wait, let's give this adopted child his or her time with us and then we'll continue our family,'" Lauren told People at the time. So a bout of morning sickness while on vacation in Africa didn't raise any flags. "I was convinced was food poisoning," she quipped.
As for Thomas, "We were on a safari with Tyler (Hubbard) and his wife and in the middle of literally nowhere. So the fact that we even found a pregnancy test to begin with was a miracle." Hear more of his thoughts on the experience courtesy of his record label below.
