Thomas Rhett to Lauren on Her Birthday: ‘Being in Your Presence Makes Me Better’

Thomas Rhett‘s birthday message to his wife Lauren Akins is so sweet it may bring tears to your eyes.

Akins turns 28 on Nov. 8, and her husband didn’t forget, writing the most heartfelt note about her and their love in honor of her special day. Posting a cute throwback photo on Instagram of the two on the beach in 2011 at the start of their relationship, Rhett shares a message of love and appreciation for Akins (Thomas Rhett’s real name is Thomas Rhett Akins Jr.).

“I have never met anyone who can light up a room the way you do just by smiling. I have never seen someone make a stranger feel like you have known them for a lifetime the way that you do. I have never laughed or loved harder in my whole life than when I’m with you,” he says, describing his wife with the sweetest words. “I’m so far from perfect but just being in your presence makes me better. You are the most amazing mom. You TRULY are Wonder Woman. I am beyond thankful that God put you on this earth 28 years ago and that he allowed me to know you and marry you. I love you so freaking much.”

Rhett and Akins have become one of country music’s most beloved couples over the past few years, making fans smile whether stunning on the red carpet or watching Akins cheer on her husband at awards shows. The couple expanded their family in 2017 with the adoption of precious Willa Gray in May of 2017, soon followed by the birth of baby Ada James on Aug. 12. The two have also been doing incredible work with 147 Million Orphans, which Akins serves on the board of, an organization that offers critical aid to orphans living in poverty around the world.
