Mother’s Day is less than a month away, and Audrey McGraw is already feeling extra thankful for her mom and country music icon, Faith Hill. On Saturday, the youngest of the McGraw daughters posted a snap showcasing her mom’s floristry talents. In the pic, her followers got to see beautiful white roses picked from Hill’s garden.
In the caption, 19-year-old Audrey gave a heartfelt shoutout to her mom. “I miss walking into my bedroom to see the flowers mom set out from her garden,” adding “sweet little moments.”
Long before her parents welcomed Audrey into the world, McGraw and Hill met in 1994 during a Country Radio Seminar showcase when the artists were on the rise in country music. Even though McGraw had a girlfriend, he later said it was love at first sight when he locked eyes with Hill. At the time, Hill was also taken. She was engaged to famous music producer Scott Hendricks, who’s behind artists such as Blake Shelton and Dan + Shay. Later, the two ended up tying the knot in 1996, and it’s been magic ever since.
“If someone is going to judge my character because I was engaged to somebody and then I left him for somebody else,” Hill told People in two years after getting married, “I can’t control that. But I wasn’t about to let Tim slip through my hands.”
The Lessons Tim Mcgraw Learned From Faith Hill & Their Daughters
One year after walking down the aisle, the couple welcomed their first child: Gracie McGraw. Later, the couple welcomed Maggie and Audrey. As a proud girl-dad, Tim McGraw’s enduring love and support for his daughters are evident in the heartfelt posts he shares on social media.
Long before he met Hill and his daughters, McGraw was already accustomed to living with women. Without a dad in the picture, he grew up with sisters and his mom. In an interview with Garrett Hedlund, the country singer openly discussed his take on raising daughters, admitting how “unfathomable” it is at how fast time flies.
“Our youngest is 19 and living in New York City now,” he said, speaking of Audrey. “I mean, it’s crazy. It goes by so fast. You think you’re giving them good life lessons. You know, as a parent, you’re going to get half of everything wrong. That’s just the nature of it. There is no handbook with it.”
For McGraw, he believes that his wife and daughters have made him into the person he is today, something he’s forever grateful for.
“They have made me such a better man and made me see things in a different way. They taught me so much more about life, about how to be a man,” he said. “There’s nothing like three daughters and a wife who are head strong, smart, love you unconditionally. There’s nothing like being surrounded by that.”
