Just providing an enthusiastic audience with a stellar show might be enough responsibility for any country music superstar, but the ante was raised for Thomas Rhett during a show in Winnipeg, Canada.
The singer, who puts on one high energy show, had strolled down the runway to get closer to the fans when one couple handed him an envelope. In video on his Instagram page, we learn that the contents of the envelope will reveal the gender of the couple’s unborn child.
Thomas chides the couple explaining that most people hit exploding golf balls or baseballs that explode in a pink or blue puff of smoke. He also admitted that it was a lot of pressure for him. He then opened the envelope, broke into a huge smile and sweetly announced, “it’s a girl.”

Thomas Rhett’s tour continues in Canada through May 15 before he makes his way back down into the state for shows in Washington. He then takes his Very Hot Summer Tour to The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama on May 25, where he and Russell Dickerson, Dustin Lynch, and his dad Rhett Akins will play back to-back shows at the gulf front venue.
