His other half, Lauren, also shared the good news, writing, "Our little miss Lillie Carolina Akins was born on November 15th and our family couldn't be more over the moon about our littlest joy. 'If He dresses the lilies with beauty and splendor How much more will He clothe you? If He watched over every sparrow How much more does He love you?' Lyrics from 'Jireh' by @elevationworship and @maverickcitymusic inspired by scriptures in Matthew 6 & Luke 12. Just love hearing her name as the sweetest reminder of how much God cares for us."
