When Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren adopted Willa Gray from Africa earlier this year, the couple thought it would take a while for her to adjust to her new life. That wasn’t the case at all, however.
Willa Gray hasn’t missed a beat. She’s far surpassed her adoptive parents’ expectations, in fact. “Willa has just adapted way better than we ever thought she would,” Thomas admits in an interview released by his record label. “Going from where she came from to being here, I thought that she would be overwhelmed and kind of really shy, but she’s never met a stranger. You can bring her into a huge crowded room and she’s like the life of the party, Or, she can chill and just watch Moana for the 58th time this week.”
Always a welcome sight, Willa, Lauren and baby Ada James flew to the West Coast recently to surprise Thomas as he made the rounds in support of his new album Life Changes. His Home Team Tour continues through at least mid’ November. Check out his upcoming stops here.
