Tim McGraw and Faith Hill celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary on Oct. 6 by telling the story of his romantic (and unconventional) proposal to his wife.
Tim McGraw will never forget the day he asked Faith Hill to marry him. In fact, on Wednesday, October 6 — exactly 25 years to the day after their wedding — the country superstar took to Instagram to recall the proposal. “We had been dating for quite some time.
Tim, 54, told his followers, “I actually asked her to marry me quite a few times and she kept saying no.” “She responded, ‘I’m not going to get engaged with another country artist,'” he continued.
The musician went on to describe how the proposal took place in the most unexpected of locations – inside a trailer house set up during an outdoor event where he and Faith were performing. Tim stated, “I was getting ready to go on stage and I had this sort of case with this enormous mirror in it.” We were standing there conversing when I said, ‘Look, let’s get married.’
‘You’re asking me to marry you in a trailer house at a country music festival?’ she says. And I answered, “Well, if you think about it, it’s fairly apropos.” ‘Are you serious?’ she asks. ‘Well, yeah, I’m serious,’ I said.
Tim was dead serious when he asked Faith, 54, a question, but he had to leave her side before getting a response in order to go on stage and perform. When he got back to the trailer, he found out she’d accepted his proposal!
“I exited the stage and returned to my dressing room, but Faith was not present, so I glanced in the mirror. ‘Yes!’ it said in lipstick. ‘I’m going to be your wife,’ she says. And that mirror is still with us,” the three-time Grammy winner assured his fans. “It was, without a doubt, the best day of my life.”
So there’s the backstory to Tim and Faith’s engagement, and the rest is history: they married on October 6, 1996, and have three kids, Gracie, 24, Maggie, 23, and Audrey, 19. “25 years later, and it’s still the finest day of my life,” Tim wrote in the title of his video. Thank you for joining me on this adventure. Faith, I adore you.”
Tim and Faith are a legend in their own right. They’ve carved out the picture-perfect life while maintaining a healthy balance of fame and solitude. The epitome of #couplegoals.
