Thomas Rhett Reveals The Origin Of His Daughters’ Names

posted by Kristen Gates - 

Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren welcomed their second daughter Ada James earlier this month, and it turns out her name, as well as the name of her sister Willa Gray, have a special meaning to the couple. 

The couple chose family names for both of their daughters, with Willa named after Thomas’ maternal grandfather Willard, which he says means “innately brave,” while Gray is after Lauren’s brother Grayson, noting, "we really love Grayson’s personality and we love him so much."

As for Ada James, James comes from Thomas’ uncle, while Ada is the only name that isn’t from the family. Thomas explains, “Lauren said that she had a dream and she kept hearing the name Ada in the dream. And that is why we went with Ada. Pretty random but really cool.”

So this is about 17 hrs post delivery & after I'd slept for the first time in about 58 hours so I'm still a bit zonked in the video, but this is when Willa Gray met Ada for the first time 💗💗I know everyone is wondering about WG & AJ and how they're doing together 😘 honestly it's taken WG a little bit of adjusting and she's been staying with family and friends off & on especially when Thomas Rhett leaves because I think it's impossible for me to recover, take care of our 2 pups and a newborn and a 21 month old all at the same time 😂 soooo Willa Gray hasn't been around a ton the last week but don't worry! There will be LOTS of sister time soon. And she LOVES Ada now. We're just working on being "gentle" right now haha She's home today and so is daddy so all is right in our world at least for a little bit :) p.s. The fact that WG was showing AJ her bug bite meant she wanted to be friends with her right off the bat so we knew that was a good sign 😂 (sorry for the novel)
