Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren, welcomed the bundle of joy this week after meeting her more than a year ago on a trip to Uganda. The first photos of Willa with her new family were released on Friday, and Thomas and Lauren have continued the love fest with more videos on Thomas’ Instagram story.
In one video, Willa is dancing as her grandpa, singer-songwriter Rhett Akins, plays guitar for her. She’s so full of joy just like her proud new parents.
Saturday morning, Thomas posted an adorable video of Willa sitting in her high chair eating some scrambled eggs and bananas. She’s just looking around and seems totally happy and chilled out in her new home. The Bruno Mars track playing in the background is a nice touch, too. They’re getting Willa off to a great start in the music department.
Willa’s little sibling will arrive in August, so she’s got the entire summer to enjoy being the only child.
Stay tuned for more adorable baby photos and videos from Thomas and Lauren. It’s only just begun!
