Tim McGraw Talks Raising Kids in the Public Eye

By Erin Duvall 

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have built sensational careers over the past 20 years and concurrently they’ve built a loving family. The pair are proud parents to Gracie (18), Maggie (17) and Audrey (14) and while raising girls can be tough, their stardom hasn’t been a factor.

“We certainly don’t feel like [fame] has been a hindrance to our kids,” he told an industry crowd during Country Radio Seminar (quotes via People) this week, adding, “If they grow up and write a book, we might find out differently.”

He went on to say, “Our kids know it’s there. They’ve always been around it. It’s just not anything that we’ve ever really discussed or dealt with. We haven’t talked to our kids about us being famous, even when they were little. That’s what we try to make it – not an issue.”

McGraw recalled an incident during a family moving outing when the preview for the film Four Christmases, which included McGraw, came on the big screen.

“That’s one of the times when our kids were embarrassed,” recalled McGraw, who was 40 pounds heavier at the time. “My face came up on that big screen, and my kids looked at me and said, ‘Dad, you gotta do something.'”

And he did. McGraw started his new workout regime and diet and is now known for one of the most fit bods in country music.
