Thomas Rhett tells People magazine that it was challenging keeping his wife’s pregnancy a secret. “It’s always really hard to keep secrets like that. Naturally, you are excited and want to tell everyone, and Lauren and I have always been pretty open with our fans, so it’s nice for the news to finally be out there. And yes, work-wise it can be challenging. It was definitely a little tougher leaving for the stadium every night knowing I was not only leaving Lauren to fly solo with two kids, but also that she was pregnant and dealing with that, but she’s incredible.”

Unfortunately, in the times that we live in right now, teachers have to be included in that, and so, we wanted to honor those men and women. I drop my kids off when I’m home at school every day, and I’m very appreciative of those men and women for looking out for my kiddos.”
