If you’ve ever baked a batch of yummy, delicious cookies, you know the impatience you feel as you wait for the edges to turn golden, the chocolate chips to melt and the perfect combination of crispy and chewy to occur. Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins aren’t baking cookies, but they might be more impatient while waiting for baby number three.

Thomas shared a video on his socials giving fans a visual update of Lauren’s progress, but he also asks for them to take their best guess on when their third daughter will actually make her debut. “For the sake of @laur_akins sanity, we are hoping little baby girl gets here this week,” he writes.
Lauren, who appears to be at a doctor’s appointment in the video, looks incredible and jokes, “I hope to God it’s something sooner than February third.”
Poor Lauren! The soon-to-be mother of three has struggled with morning sickness for the duration of this pregnancy and has remained under the radar and off of social media more than she did when expecting second daughter Ada James.
Back in August, Lauren posted a picture of Willa and Ada on her Instagram page and they both look perfectly happy and well taken care of, but Lauren admitted at the time that her morning sickness, or all day sickness, was getting the best of her.
“My little sunshines on our ‘adventure walk’ around the neighborhood (a game I made up on the fly because we desperately needed to get out of the house before we all lost it even though it was almost a million degrees yesterday),” she wrote. “SO READY to be fun mommy again when all this more-like-all-day-not-just-morning-sickness goes away.”
It bears mentioning that in March, Thomas Rhett’s father, ’90s country singer and hit songwriter Rhett Akins and his wife, Sonya, will welcome their first child together. That means that their little boy will be younger than his nieces.
Congratulations again to all of the Akins’!
