When Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren Akins head to the movies, there’s a specific treat Lauren must have. 

Over the weekend, the country couple headed to the movies to see the new Top Gun, but not before stopping to pick up Lauren’s favorite snack: Milk Duds. The country superstar shared a photo of his wife sitting in their Jeep in the Walgreens parking lot, excitedly holding up a case of Milk Duds and a bottle of Dr. Pepper. While a case may seem excessive, it was the result of a potential disappointment that turned into good fortune thanks to a kind employee at the store.

“The guy at Walgreens said there is a shortage of milk duds.. he then brought a case outta the back. @laur_akins gotta have her milk duds to see [Top Gun],” Thomas explains in the caption alongside a photo of his happy wife. “Thanks to the man at Walgreens.. you are a hero.” 

Thomas and Lauren share four children, daughters Willa, Ada, Lennon and Lillie.
