Country singer Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins adopted their daughter Willa Gray from Uganda in 2017.
Earlier this month, Thomas took to Instagram to share a cute photo of himself and Willa at bedtime wearing matching pink bonnets.
“Just a little night cap,” he captioned the photo.
To be honest, we’re a little surprised the Rhetts seem to have taken some time to read-up on Black hair care.
One Instagram user wrote that seeing his post made her happy because not all “families with adopted kids” take “the time to incorporate the child’s culture or cultural practices into their lives.”
“I’m glad that you guys have taken the time to incorporate black hair care into her life! I also hope you guys raise her with knowledge of her Ugandan heritage because our culture is beautiful,”
Thomas responded with the praise-hands emoji.
Reflecting on her own personal experiences, another IG user wrote, “I remember how embarrassed I used to be at sleepovers when I had to wear my bonnet around friends that didn’t understand. Thank you for supporting the differences of your daughter.”
“I hope God has given me all the right tools to raise Willa Gray to know that no matter where she comes from, she is our child, and that we want her to express her diversity,” Thomas Rhett told PEOPLE earlier this year. “She’s from Tennessee and she’s from Uganda and I want her to be proud of that.”
We’re not mad at that!
