The family's reveal featured a photo of the group in their swimsuits, with Willa Gray and Ada James resting their hands on their mom's stomach, as well as a shot of the group discovering that they'll be welcoming another girl with a cloud of pink dust exploding in the air.

"We decided we didn't have enough princess dresses around the house so we're adding another Akins baby girl to the family early next year," Akins captioned her own post. "Despite Thomas Rhett's initial shock (swipe to see video) we are absolutely over the moon for our baby girl!"


"Our girls cannot wait to meet their little sister. Willa Gray prays for her every night (heart in a puddle every time) [and] she and Ada James love to touch my belly and talk to her-especially bc I've been showing since I was SEVEN weeks," she continued. "So it feels like we have been hiding this secret for an ETERNITY. And I'd like to apologize to everyone I've canceled on, said no to or just been MIA, but for a second there I wasn't sure if I was pregnant or just puked for a living. But she's soooo worth it. We are SO excited! & if you need TR you can find him in the camping section at REI buying dude things.......jk, he's excited too."
