Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and his wife, Hayley Hubbard, were among those to congratulate the couple in the comments.

"So happy for y'all," Hubbard wrote.

"So so happy," Hayley Hubbard added.

Rhett and Akins married in October 2012 and have three other daughters, Willa Gray, 6, Ada James, 4, and Lennon Love, 21 months.

In an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May, Rhett called his daughters "the light of my world." He also said his kids have started to show an interest in music.

"Anytime I'm down in the studio, one of them is banging on the piano. One of them is hitting the drums. And one of them is singing on the microphone. So it's been really cool to just impart the little bit of knowledge I have of what I love about music to them," he said.

Rhett released his fifth studio album, Country Again: Side A, in April and is expected to release Side B in 2022.
