Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

With the hit song “Die A Happy Man,” Thomas Rhett got us all emotional and dreamy about the love he has for his lady. If you’re like me, you swooned so hard you went looking for WHO this lady is that Thomas Rhett wrote this song about and were just as eager to get a deeper look into his love life. The lady in question is named Lauren, Thomas’ wife since 2012, and she is just downright adorable and equally as endearing as Thomas is. This love story is one that is played out on Instagram and it’s gaining momentum for being a refreshing glass of southern sweet tea in a world of vodka martinis. Looking through their Instagrams may be more adorable than simultaneously scrolling puppy pictures and baby videos. Here’s a look at their love story as told through social media.

 9. They Met in the First Grade

Thomas told Taste of Country in an interview that he and Lauren met in the first grade and was quoted as saying, “We dated once when we were 15, and it didn’t work out. We dated for like six months. We remained best friends even after we broke up. We both dated other people for like five years. When I heard that she had ended her other relationship… I moved in for the kill.” Thank goodness he did cause cuteness ensues!

So many stars go for the perfect shot, the perfect look, the completely unattainable for the everyday person. Not Thomas and Lauren! These cuties are absolute perfection, in their bed head, undone, morning way.
