Becoming a first-time parent of one child is already hard work, but Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins have two babies coming in hot to prepare for as they make this next transition in their lives. That's not all - the couple also is in the process of adopting a child from Africa. The two then chose to stop trying to conceive on their own for the foreseeable future. When she began feeling ill during a visit to Tanzania in December, she was sure she wasn't pregnant.

"I nearly married someone else, and she did too", Rhett told CBS This Morning past year. Thomas encouraged her to take a pregnancy test, but then he went to the gym to work out.

"I was in complete and utter shock!"

"I'm jumping up and down, Tyler's giving me a bear hug and Hayley's running out of the room and I'm like 'Thomas Rhett is not even here, '" Lauren said. "It is nearly like we suddenly had twins".

The couple met while they were in kindergarten. "It was a good chunk of time and our family is extremely fertile, so I was expecting it to happen easily". The couple shared the double baby surprise with a picture of them holding four balloons that were made up of the letters B-A-B-Y.

"It's amusing to me how we tried so hard and then we didn't try at all and it happened!" "I took a whole row of bunks out of my bus and got a baby crib put in there". Lauren says. "We feel like it's all part of the plan". "We dated for probably six months, and we got engaged".

The 26-year-old singer wrote, "We're so happy to announce that we are pregnant & in the process of adopting a child from Africa!"
