McGraw and Hill have been falling for each other since 1996. After a whirlwind of a spontaneous engagement and a surprise wedding, the pair had become inseparable. Not long after, they became country music’s newest “it” couple and never looked back. Just one year later in 1997, Hill gave birth to the couple’s first daughter, Gracie Katherine.
It was only the beginning of their fast-growing family. Nonetheless, as the years passed and the girls grew up, McGraw and Hill still love to reminisce on their younger years. In honor of Gracie’s 22nd birthday, Hill shared a sweet note that she wrote herself at just age 7.
“I once was a baby and I grew up to be me.”
Now, that couldn’t be more true! McGraw shared a few photos of Gracie over the years and she has really grown up! From sporting bunny ears to taking silly selfies, McGraw never missed a moment with his firstborn.
I can’t believe this beautiful light in our lives, the wild and crazy, beautiful , smart immeasurably talented young…
Now, 22-year-old Gracie rocks a short blonde haired look and a confident smile. While she might resemble her mom more lately, she is following in her parents’ footsteps. Gracie has found a love for performing herself. She has even joined McGraw on stage, proving that she’s hardly shy of the spotlight! McGraw of course, couldn’t be more proud of his baby girl as he wrote the sweetest birthday tribute to her.
“I can’t believe this beautiful light in our lives, the wild and crazy, beautiful, smart immeasurably talented young lady
Who just happens to have a heart bigger than the Milky Way galaxy
My oldest daughter
My heart and soul …..
Is 22 today
We love you to the end of the universe!!!
You’re gonna slay this year!!!!!!”
On this day, 21 years ago, Tim and I learned for the first time what it meant to love someone so much that our hearts…
Could this family be any sweeter?!
