"Thomas Rhett and I are so [in] love with her".

Country singer Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren Atkins, welcomed their second daughter Saturday, People reported. She made her world debut weighing seven pounds and three ounces. We are so excited that Willa Gray has a baby sister!' the man wrote on social media.

"My wife @laur_akins labored for nearly 36 hours", he continued. "[Lauren] is by far the strongest human being I have ever met, and I have a new-found respect for moms around the world".

The family's latest bundle of joy comes several months after the couple adopted 21-month-old Willa Gray from Uganda in May after meeting the tot through the organization 147 Million Orphans. "We're just gonna try to integrate them into our lives as much as possible and try to just create as much of a normal lifestyle as possible". Thank y'all for your prayers-she is a miracle and God is so good.

She came from behind and cruised to the finish line in the last 200m of the race. "I pushed it 100 percent and I'm super-happy".

Rhett has a few days at home with his family before he resumes touring on Thursday (Aug. 17) with a performance at the Willamette Country Music Festival in Brownsville, Oregon.

The proud mom added that the new family of four are "doing well now, just resting".

Rhett and Lauren revealed both their pregnancy and their decision to adopt in the same February announcement, as they'd found out Lauren was expecting just after they'd begun filling out adoption paperwork. "Safe to say life is about to get insane!" "Yes, I'm bouncing on a birth ball trying to coax my baby out", she said on her Instagram story. Rhett captioned the adorable snap of the parents-to-be proudly holding up festive balloons that spelled out the word "baby". "BABIES! Our hearts are exploding with happiness for y'all to meet our new baby who we are bringing home from Africa soon who is also going to have a little brother or sister because, SURPRISE! there's a sweet baby in my belly too".

Thomas Rhett and Lauren have known each other since the first grade and were married on October 12, 2012.
