Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren will celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary on October 12th.

Thomas says, “It’s been a long time comin’ for sure. I mean, me and Lauren have definitely been to school together since we were in first grade but didn’t really know each other really well ‘til church camp about sixth grade.”

Rhett says that even in even in sixth grade, he knew Lauren was “the one.” When he met her at church camp, he says, “I fell in love with her that day. I was like, there is not a prettier human being that exists in this world and I was like, ‘I will figure out a way to marry this woman one day.’”

He added, “We dated for a little bit in high school and then broke up for a very long time and got back together when we were about 21 years old. And now we’re about to celebrate eight years of marriage, so it’s been a pretty wild journey with her.”

Thomas posted to Instagram over the weekend with pictures of his daughters, saying, “I have officially become the dad that brings his giant camera everywhere.”
