After Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins welcomed their fourth daughter last month, the country singer is opening up on how their family is adjusting.

Akins gave birth to baby Lillie Carolina on Nov. 15. At the time, Rhett celebrated their arrival in a social media post, writing, "Watching a child being born is legit a miracle. 4 under 6 here we go!"

Rhett and Akins are already parents to 6-year-old Willa Gray, 4-year-old Ada James and 1-year-old Lennon Love.

And while Rhett knows it’ll be a lot of work, the singer says he and his wife aren’t too fazed.

"I think after having three kids, I don’t feel like me and Lauren could be shocked anymore," Rhett shared in an interview courtesy of his label, Big Machine Label Group.

"I do know that four is a lot, but we’re already kind of in the chaos phase with young kids -- one in kindergarten, one in preschool, one still in diapers and then an infant," he continued. "We’re just gonna have to re-learn how to prioritize our time."

After all, having a crowded family table has always been a dream for Thomas and Lauren.

"I do know that it’s gonna be stressful, but, you know, we always wanted a big family, and we’re just looking forward to it," he added.

The "chaos phase" of four kids kicks off this holiday season: Lauren recently shared a holiday selfie of all six members of the family together in matching Christmas outfits.
