Tyler Hubbard Knew Thomas Rhett Was Going to Be a Dad Before Thomas Rhett Knew
Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins really shared the exciting news that they're joining in on the celebrity twin announcements-- kind of.
TR and Lauren are in the process of adopting a baby from Africa and just found out they're expecting a little one on their own, too.
While on a safari in Africa with Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley, Lauren took a pregnancy test.
She revealed the full, exciting story to People Magazine:
"When we began the adoption process, we said, 'Let's wait, let's give this adopted child his or her time with us and then we'll continue our family,' " Lauren explains. "So I was convinced it was food poisoning."
But just in case, she decided to check. Certain the result would be negative, Thomas Rhett left his wife with their friends, Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and wife Hayley, who were on safari with them, for a treadmill workout when Lauren took the test.
Sure enough, it was positive. "I'm jumping up and down, Tyler's giving me a bear hug and Hayley's running out of their room and I'm like, 'Thomas Rhett is not even here!' "
The trio ran to the gym and blurted out the news.
"I was in complete and utter shock!" says Thomas Rhett, 26. "No one is ever prepared for something like that. It is almost like we suddenly had twins."
Thomas Rhett is about to embark on his first ever headlining tour with a little help from Kelsea Ballerini.
Garth Brooks might be the most generous superstar on the planet. He also loves being a dad as much as loves being the highest-selling individual musical artist of all-time. And if you ever doubted that fact, just check out what he did during a recent show.
Brooks helped a happy couple with their gender reveal on stage, but before doing so he offered up a lot of sweet advice, "The only thing better than one is 50 — as many as you can afford. It's awesome. You'll see. Once they give you that baby, you'll go 'I'll take 100 more of these, man.'"
I love the South-- its lakes, its river, its natural beauty, and even its abandoned buildings, churches, and forgotten plantations. There's something fascinating about seeing these man-made places that nature has reclaimed. The glory days of these places are long since gone, leaving only overgrown ruins, but it's that hint of glory that only adds to the mystery and makes you want to see these places for yourself.

I've never understood children's toys that simulate the banality of adult life. I've seen toy vacuums, toy lawn mowers, and little kitchenettes. Why are we so interested in pretend chores as kids?
Mattel has taken things a step further with their newest Barbie playset. This Barbie comes with a cute little dog that winds up and walks on release. And better yet, every few steps it's drops out little brown tic tac shaped turds. How fun! They've really distilled the most joyous moments of dog-ownership, haven't they? The dog doesn't bark, or wag its little tail, or I don't know, lick Barbie's face when she gets home. It poops. Then Barbie uses her pooper-scooper to clean it up.
