Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren Akins, recently revealed they are adopting a child and are pregnant with another! Now, they’re coming clean about the red carpet struggles they faced at the GRAMMYs this year.
According to Taste of Country, the couple struggled to keep the pregnancy secret while walking on the red carpet. They even selected a dress that would hide the baby bump Akins was sporting at the time of the event.
However, pregnancy sickness made it especially hard to get through the ceremony. Lauren explained:
“On our way to the GRAMMYs, Thomas Rhett was like, ‘Honey, you look beautiful,’ and I had this look on my face and he was like, ‘Do you feel sick?’ I was like, ‘Yeah — and I’m just praying I’m not about to throw up again before we go on the red carpet!’”
She also kept a secret pack of saltines hidden in her purse all night to help easy the nausea.
Luckily, the cat’s out of the bag now and we wish them both the best with the adoption and the pregnancy!
