Thomas recently spoke about his relationship with Lauren, revealing that he knew since he was a child that he wanted to spend his life with her.

“It’s been a long time coming for sure,” Thomas shared with his record label. “I mean, me and Lauren have definitely been to school together since we were in first grade but didn’t really know each other really well until church camp about sixth grade. And I fell in love with her that day. I was like, ‘There is not a prettier human being that exists in this world and I will figure out a way to marry this woman one day.’ We dated for a little bit in high school and then broke up for a very long time and got back together when we were about 21 years old.

“And now we’re about to celebrate eight years of marriage,” he reflected. “It’s been a pretty wild journey with her, but I wouldn’t trade one minute of it, even the hard parts. When you find your soulmate, you just kind of do anything you can to stick to it, and for me to just be the best husband I can be.”
