Thomas Rhett and Akins adopted their eldest daughter Willa Gray from Uganda in 2017, and the “Be a Light” singer says he and Akins have been striving to teach her to embrace herself for who she is.
“[It’s] something that we talk about really openly,” Thomas Rhett told Entertainment Tonight about the conversations they have been sharing with Willa Gray who has noticed that her family “looks a lot different.”
“I think me and Lauren’s main thing we want to get across is how proud we are and that we want her to grow up proud of herself and of her family,” he said. “[We tell Willa] to embrace who you are and to embrace your uniqueness and embrace your culture as well.”
“That’s something we want to educate her on as long as she’s still in our household and even beyond that,” he added.
Thomas Rhett and Akins are parents to daughters Willa Gray, 4½, Ada James, 3, and Lennon Love, 7 months.
