Tim McGraw and Faith Hill first met in 1994 during a Country Radio Seminar showcase for new artists. At that time, Tim had a girlfriend but he had always said that it was love at first sight for him. And with a bit of a plot twist decision on Faith’s end, the two ended up tying the knot in 1996.
After a year, the newlyweds welcomed their first child, Gracie Katherine McGraw. Gracie is now 23, followed by her sisters Maggie Elizabeth, 22, and Audrey Caroline, 19. With a house full of daughters, Tim McGraw spent his whole fatherhood as the only man in the house, and he was definitely okay with that. According to him, it has been an amazing experience to live with women.
In an interview, he said that there was nothing like having three daughters and a wife who are headstrong, smart, and love him unconditionally. He also added that nothing beats being surrounded by the women in his life who taught him how to be a man.
Tim had grown up with his sisters and his mom, and he didn’t have a dad. And when he did have one around, these men weren’t really the best role models. And so, he had always been the guy’s guy and he always did things he liked to do. Up to a point that he was so confident that he was so much more macho than he was in real life. And his wife and his daughters definitely made him see things in a different perspective and taught him about life. They made a better man out of him.
He confessed that as an outnumbered male in a house full of estrogen, he became the kind of guy who cried at Hallmark commercials. But he wouldn’t change anything of how his life had been for the world. For him, it was a blessing that made his choices and his craft more defined and more emotional.
McGraw also recalled one critical decision that he and his wife Faith Hill made after Gracie’s birth. They told everyone that for six weeks, they didn’t want anybody to come. And that was one of the most beautiful things they ever did for them. They wanted to stay and spend time with their baby.
In addition to that, he also defended parents who let their children sleep in the same bed with them, which was something they did with their firstborn. While Gracie ended up being with him and Faith in bed quite a bit, it was a decision that he never regretted.
He can definitely attest that their decisions led to a beautiful connection between them. And true enough, these three little girls grew up to be strong and independent women.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s daughters are now walking their respective paths in life. Gracie is now pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. Maggie is headed back to Stanford for a master’s degree in sustainability science. And Audrey is now attending a film-making course in New York University while working as a model for the brand Tony Burch.
