Like millions of other parents, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are celebrating the class of 2020. But the country music stars have double the reasons to be proud.
They revealed in sweet social media posts that their middle daughter, 21-year-old Maggie, had just graduated from Stanford University, while youngest daughter Audrey, 18, had just received her high school diploma.
"Our class of 2020 girls! Stanford 2020 EHS 2020 Boom! Great work ladies! Mom and I are so proud of y'all!!! ❤️💪🏼," Tim captioned a June 14 photo collage with images of both girls. (Their eldest, 23-year-old Gracie, lives in Los Angeles where she's pursuing a career as an actress.)
Faith chimed in in the comments, "So proud of you both!!!! Love you❤️❤️❤️❤️." She also took to Instagram herself to post some love for her babies.
On June 12, Faith posted a video of Audrey singing as a little girl. "There is no doubt in my mind little sparrow that you will always be YOU. Wherever you land. Now a high school graduate and a part of the extraordinary class of 2020!!!!!!!!" Faith captioned the clip.
On June 14, she shared a hilarious video of herself singing with Maggie as they drove from Tennessee to California to move Maggie into college four years ago — but turn the sound down for this one. "Hard to believe that this road trip with Maggie from Nashville to Palo Alto was four years ago," Faith captioned the video in which you can only hear wind whipping against the camera phone. "This was me trying to film us singing to the radio with my phone out of the window……easy to see why one of us just graduated from Stanford and one did not!!!!! Congratulations Maggie and to all of your sweet friends as well!!! We love you!!!!!! Go Cardinal!!!!! Stanford Class of 2020."
In 2018, Tim talked about how he and Faith would soon be empty nesters. "It's toughest on mom, because she is the one … they always want mom to do stuff for them. Sometimes she just misses them and doing things for them everyday and doing things moms do," he told Taste of Country. "I think it's really tough on her sometimes."
Watching them grow up felt bittersweet, he added, but ultimately, he knows they're prepared for what life throws at them. "They had had such a great role model in their mother to model themselves after to go out and face the world as a woman because of who was involved in raising them," Tim told Taste of Country. "They've gotten some good tools."
As for his best parenting advice? "The only parenting advice is if you get half the things right, you are doing pretty good," Tim said.
