Rhett shared his own announcement, writing, “Lennon Love Akins was born at 8:30 AM on February 10th! It was such a joy to watch this little angel be brought into the world. My wife is just incredible through the entire birth watching our kids meet Lennon for the first time was probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen in my whole life! Ada James and Willa Gray are going to be the best big sisters on the planet. The Lord is so good and I’m so grateful for my beautiful growing family!! Y’all pray for us as we switch from man on man defense to zone.”

The country singer announced in July that his family would be soon adding another member to it, sharing sweet photos of his daughters embracing their mother’s belly – while also joking about adding another girl to the group.

“Excited to share that I will now be paying for 3 weddings,” Rhett quipped in his caption at the time. “I feel so blessed to say that our third child is on the way and it’s a girl!! I love you so much @laur_akins. WG and AJ, y’all are gonna be the best big sisters! Bring on the crazy.”

The “Life Changes” singer previously revealed he wanted to have a large family, sharing with ABC News Radio in June that even though balancing parenting and work is “stressful,” he’s was ready to have more kids.

“If we stopped having kids now, I know I’d wake up at 45 and go, ‘We should’ve had five more,’ because I really do want to be able to sit at a Thanksgiving or Christmas table with the most gigantic family,” Rhett said at the time. “There is nothing more fun than being around my children, so I can only imagine it gets more fun the more that you have.”
